I'm Jacob Barajas-Santos, and I grew up in San Antonio, TX, was born in Moreno Valley, CA, and both of my parents are from Ayutla, Jalisco, Mexico. I recently graduated from the University of Texas at Austin where I majored in Radio-Television-Film. In my last semester, I was part of a "semester in LA" program where I learned that I wanted to call LA my new home. I currently spend my time on set as a Camera Assistant or at my desk as a Freelance Colorist.
