My Life So Far: Jake Aria
Jake T. Aria was born in Santa Clara, CA. He moved to Oakley, CA when he was just 3 years old. Jake likes the quote by C.S. Lewis “I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” Jake has put his faith in action and has taken four mission trips to Mexico to help minister to the needs of children and the elderly.
Jake decided at the age of 12 that he wanted to work in the film industry and made his first short film at twelve. Since then he has made several short films and entered them film festivals. He maintains two websites okmamaproductions.com and jakearia.com. Jake shot a Miley Cyrus video at Disneyland a couple years ago that has over 320,000 views.
Got his bachelors from UCSB with a degree in Film and Media and his masters from National University of Ireland, John Huston Film School.
