Founder & CEO
Jake was born on the outskirts of Pittsburgh PA, where he and his family of 4 still reside. He was a teenager during the rise of the information age and was taken by the way it changed how people interacted and how business was done. He told himself that if he ever saw a change like that coming again, he was committed to being a part of it.
In 2014, he combined his passion for photography, technology, and aviation with the rise of the “drone age” and created Eye-bot Aerial Solutions. As a general aviator, Jake applied the competency he learned in flight school into his business and personnel. He and his team now provide the marketplace with a visualization platform that includes certification and training, drone data collection, digital twin processing, hosting and consulting services ranging from infrastructure inspections to communications asset modeling. Eye-bot will continue to pioneer innovative ways to capture and deliver the current state and position of critical assets, in the US or abroad.
