Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

A longtime fan and proud member of the Playing for Change team, Jake couldn’t be happier to help lead this incredible organization. With a Master’s Degree in Arts Leadership, and having worked over fifteen years in the arts and arts education, he has had the pleasure of working with major artists and helping those children most in need around the globe through the arts. Most recently prior to working for Playing for Change Foundation, Jake worked as Executive Director of Josh Groban’s Find Your Light Foundation, helping to dramatically expand their reach and impact.

Music and the arts are one of our greatest tools to help kids in need and create social impact. Jake is honored to work with such an incredible group of people and help grow Playing for Change Foundation in size, scope, and impact.
