Jake has launched many successful new start up businesses numerous sectors over the past 10 years, but after achieving commercial success he is now following his dreams, and a dream all starts with a story. With a passion for nature and all things that protect the natural world, Lambs to Lions is his next big project that he believes will “Do some good in the world” by sharing powerful, emotive stories about the nature all around us.
Jake has had a rich and varied career that has encapsulated landscape design and build to songwriting for a record label, through to new start-ups. Jake’s entrepreneurial experience sets him up perfectly to help deliver the Lambs to Lions vision. Jake’s belief is that through the power of story-telling, children, young adults, and adults with imaginations can be reminded of all the things that make us human – the rivers and trees, the oceans and the animals, all connected together. He believes that if we are connected to nature as we were meant to be as a product of nature itself, then we can once again regain our place as enlightened sentient beings capable of living in harmony with the living and breathing world that we are a part of. So it is with this in mind that Jake intends to scour the 4 corners of the earth, searching for authors who can tell the stories that can change the world, and help set humanity on a course that reconnects us with nature.
Jake passionately believes that human health, happiness and wellbeing are all linked to our connectedness to nature, if the planet is polluted, sick and unwell, then so it shall be that humans will also be polluted, sick and unwell, and worst of all, without our natural connection to planet earth, we can never achieve true happiness and contentment. It may seem as if humanity is miles away from being at peace with itself and planet earth, but actually it is only a story or 2 away. “It’s all about the story”
