Jake is an aspiring prima-ballerina interested in the intersectionality of dance and political theory. He loves barre work, Rousseau, and can often be found taking long sunset walks on the beach. His goal is to one day hike the Appalachian Trail in only a leotard and ballet slippers as he ponders Habermas' Between Facts and Norms. He intends to finish his M.A. in Political Science next spring and attend the Julliard School for Political Dance.
