Jake Ruffer


Jake is a junior from Portland, Oregon double-majoring in journalism and economics with a minor in photography. He got his start at TMS writing news and working his way up as a photographer.

Hoping primarily to one day be a “photojournalist,” Jake would also settle for the career path of “guy with job.” He’s an avid coffee addict enthusiast, Trailblazer fan and casual frisbee thrower/catcher, all while battling a growing financial problem which is probably not related to his budding camera collection. And, to answer your burning question, he came 2,000 miles to study here because his parents are a Miami Merger.
