Jacob Perkins



Jacob Perkins

Born amidst the quaint craggy rocks of the Maine coast, Jacob has led a relatively sheltered life, skipping from one warm, loving cocoon to another. He recently volunteered in Virginia for the Obama campaign and is a recent graduate trustee at Bennington College— the most recent cocoon. He enjoys the feeling of a job well done, and of salty spray. A stubborn idealist, book, bike and tree enthusiast, and listener, Jacob is fumbling his way to enlightenment and having a damn good time.
