Jake started his career working for the 76ers as part of the “Dunk Squad”. As a frequent customer of Modern Male Barbershop, he fell in love with the fun and relaxing atmosphere of the shop.
Since high school, Jake dreamt about learning a trade, something he could devote his energy and passion to. On one occasion when Jake was in for a cut, Nicky the Barba challenged him saying, “You can’t dunk balls all your life, kid. What are you going to do with your life?”
Nicky suggested he come in and shadow one of the barbers and he was hooked!
After a period of intense study and practice in the Modern Male Apprentice program, Jake finally became a gentleman barber and is now taking his grooming skills to a whole other level.
Jake is passionate about meeting gentlemen of all ages in the barbershop, sharing life experiences and making them look sharp.
When not in the shop, Jake is pursuing his other passions; photography, music and, of course, the Sixers.
