Working at EdgePoint has been Jacob's dream since the seventh grade…well working in finance anyway. His coworkers have learned to budget a little extra time walking by his desk as he'll talk to anyone about anything. This skill's been helpful to him outside of the office during his travels to 16 countries (so far) or asking for a spot when lifting weights. Jacob's shown that he's comfortable on water, whether its chasing down the biggest wave he can find on his Sea-Doo or working as a canoe and kayak instructor in high school. He joined EdgePoint right after earning his B.Comm. in Finance from Dalhousie University. During his time there Jacob had a co-op term in corporate accounting and two terms at a mutual fund company.
