Hello, I’m Jacob and you seem to have found my website. This is an informal place for me to keep track of things I’ve been involved in recently, whether that be Podcasts, Instructional Videos or other mildly interesting things.  This site probably exists for my benefit more than anybody else’s, but please do take a poke around while you’re here and maybe you’ll find something useful.

I’ll try and update this page as and when interesting things happen, but I’m not making any promises.  For more regular updates, the latest sixty-second videos and semi-regular comments about Stroopwaffels, please do feel free to follow me on Twitter.
