Jake Patoski

Support Manager

Jake is a career “do-gooder”, having worked in international democracy development, lefty politics in Texas, progressive public school districts, and digital communications for non-profit organizations. Whether he’s coming up with innovative uses of technology, or translating techy things so others can get stuff done, Jake is a born helper (he’s definitely a Type 9 enneagram). He balances his computer time with rock climbing, foraging, and generally communing with nature.
