“Jake skilfully reflected the young people’s own stories in the script. This made the young actors connection with the work genuine and that was plain to see for the audience. They were clearly moved by this poignant and insightful piece”.

“Working alongside Jake for “Baby mama drama” for the untold series was such a pleasure! His scripts where creative, touching and powerful and he has a real talent for imaginative writing and creative direction. He works to a high standard, and well within the time frame I needed (which was pretty short) so he works amazingly well under pressure! I will defo be using him in the future and I recommend you do too, he’s amazing" Makeda McMillan - Project Manager at Small Green Shoots
