Professionally, Jake has focused on media and the content industry both from the creative and management side and often in start-up teams.

He moved to the business side as an associate for Lazaro Bernardo Tiu and Associates doing business plans for media companies. After his MBA he was involved in mergers and acquisitions of media & internet companies for PLDT. There he was also part of the start-up team that spun-off ePLDT. He then joined CI Holdings and helped start up Newsbreak (an investigative news magazine), Pathways (a multi-awarded radio drama production group) and oversaw strategic planning for Pulse Asia, and the Foundation for Communication Initiatives, and Today Newspaper. Jake eventually became CFO of the Holdings Company and COO of its subsidiaries.

In 2002 he founded and ran JUICE, an all Filipino lifestyle channel in local cable TV with some international distribution. In 2007 he founded Tripleshot Media Inc. where he is currently the Managing Director. Tripleshot Media produces Green Living for the ABS CBN News Channel and is also aired internationally on TFC (The Filipino Channel). In 2014, Green Living was awarded Best Magazine Show by the 13th Gawad Tanglaw ng Lahi awards. Jake’s company also created a new media platform based on the show, GAMEPLAN (acquired from Probe Productions Inc in 2013). In 2015, Tripleshot Media partnered with Rappler to carry GAMEPLAN on the Rappler platform.
