“If those three words don’t make you feel like you can conquer the MF world, you can swipe left right now, I don’t need that kind of negativity in my life!” - Me at some point to somebody on a wedding day, trust.
Hi, my name is Jacob...25.. Taurus.. *makes silly horn shapes with fingers on forehead*.. and I was definitely bribed with cheese and champagne to write this in the third person...
Jacob is the newest addition to the SPD Tribe, a born and bred New Yorker, his strong work ethic, Karen Walker-esque quick wit, and his unwillingness to admit he has an unhealthy addiction to hairspray…. are going to mesh perfectly with the heavy dose of southern charm he’s bound to acquire.
Oh!... he is currently relocating to Charleston to boost our...southern exposure! Pun intended.
Jacob brings an extensive all-around hospitality background to the Scarlet Plan & Design team. His love for the industry started with the very beginning of his college years, acquiring his degree in Resort Management & Event Planning. He spent four years at Turning Stone Resort & Casino where he gained invaluable Vegas-style bar & nightlife experience, he is definitely a pro at knowing how to throw one hell of a party! *insert Champagne pop here*
After leaving Turning Stone, he moved into the Adirondacks in Upstate New York, where he was the Wedding and Events Coordinator for a small lakefront luxury resort. In addition to throwing incredible parties, Jacob has been teaching Zumba for just over 7 years. When he hangs up his suit and takes his earpiece out, he's swapping into his ever growing alter-ego’s wardrobe, Zumbawear….It gets its own closet! Teaching several packed classes a week and working with his amazing clients keeps him on the go constantly. And once he finds a new home gym in Charleston, definitely look him up!
When he is not teaching Zumba or planning a spectacular event, you can find him with his corgi, Parker or binge watching shows while stove popping popcorn.
The rest is yet to be written! Jacob is extremely excited to be the newest member of the SPD tribe, and looking forward to making Charleston his new home!
What’s your favorite happy hour drink?
Mmmmmm.. Titos and cranberry for sure, UNLESS I see a copper mug, then a Moscow Mule is my go to! BUT…… if you offer me a pitcher of Mojitos, my Party Goblin will come thundering through the door for sure!
For those of you not familiar with the works of Iliza Schlesinger…:
How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Rule no. 1, NEVER ask a woman how many pairs of shoes she owns.
Imelda Marcos is jealous.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
TJ-Maxx. Home Goods. Marshalls. Seriously, it is an addiction and I’m not ashamed.
What are you binge watching on Netflix, right now?
I just watched Altered Carbon…. In 3 days.. It was AMAZING. I’m all about sci-fi futuristic stuff. There better be another season….
If your life was a movie, which actor would play your role?
Oh that’s easy, Jack Falahee, my TGIT husband. He’s a thirst trap, my movie will be a huge hit!
What is your spirit animal, why?
I would have to say a Corgi, partially based on the fact that I now parent one. Headstrong, loyal, bottom-less-snackerous-monsterousness, very affectionate, quick witted and strong, with a slight tendency to get testy when I'm not getting enough cuddles!
If Scarlet had a theme song what would it be?
It would have to be a crazy mash-up of Fireball by Pitbull, Tequila by The Champs, and Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore.
What’s the best gift you ever received?
My pupster! From the day I saw his picture from the breeder I knew I had to have him! He was so fuzzy and had the most interesting face. His name is Parker, but he is also known as, Meatloaf, Speedbump, Monster, Pooper, and My little loaf of bread.
What are three things left on your bucket list?
Skydiving, Holding a koala, and… owning my own boutique hotel.
Android or Apple?
Apple… duh. My phone has been an iPhone since the 3 came out, I could never change.
