Photo credit to my sister.What a doozy of a question. Come to think of it, who is anyone? I used to have a cheesy “It was a dark and stormy night” story here to explore my origins, but I don’t know if that does, or ever did, really explain who I am as a person. Allow me to retry to answer the question this page posits with a bulleted list:

  • I’m a man
    • He/Him
  • I’m a New Yorker
    • Former Crotonite
    • Former King of Queens
    • Current Man of Manhattan
  • I’m an editor
    • Copy editor
    • I stay far away from photo and video editing
    • I rarely spell “license” correctly on the first try
      • How can such a simple word be so difficult to master?
  • I’m a graduate of Emory University
    • Creative Writing major, History minor
    • Brother – Sigma Phi Epsilon
    • One semester spent at Kings College London
    • GPA: 3.55
  • I’m a Mets fan
    • Also follow the Jets, Knicks, and Islanders, but they’re leagues behind the Mets in terms of level of fandom
  • I bake award-winning chocolate chip cookies*
    • *2018 FCB Editorial Department Bake-off Champion
  • Creative pursuits:
  • Other assorted fun facts:
    • Bing is my default search engine
    • I still play Pokémon Go
    • I wear a size 8 fitted cap
    • -40 degrees Celsius is the same as -40 degrees Fahrenheit

The above appears to be a concise, yet comprehensive survey of who I am. Do you think I left anything out? Did you find a typo? If so, or if you’d just like to say “hi,” write me at Jacob at JacobAlbrecht dot com, or use the contact form here to send your message.
