Jake Robillard

Features

Born and raised in Ottawa, Jake is a Carleton University Communications and Media Studies student with a passion for blogging. He’s worked in both the government and the pirate sector, but his passion lies in media relations. Like every other millennial, he spends his days browsing the internet for the latest celebrity gossip, scrolling through memes, or completing the latest Buzzfeed quiz telling him what his Starbucks order says about his personality. You’ll often find him out exploring the city with his friends, trying new restaurants, or cuddled up watching Netflix.
