When Jake isn’t investigating Taylor Swift’s easter eggs or watching Bravo for Bustle, you can find him at Britney Spears trivia night, getting in his 10,000 steps at Bergdorf, or playing Kylie Minogue’s “Padam Padam” to anyone who will listen. He is up for traveling anywhere he can go — especially if Lady Gaga or Beyoncé are there.
