Meet Our 2021 Fall Fellow

Jacob Smith is our 2021 Fall Fellow. He is currently a student at UNLV Law School and aspires to be an IP lawyer specializing in Open Source.

### What talent are you most proud of?
This question was difficult for me, so I am going to interpret it a different way. Discovering, learning, and training
duo acrobatics has led to many talents and has greatly impacted the trajectory of my life. I am proud of the changes not
only in my understanding of health but also in the way I view life that I have gained through acrobatics.

### Do you know your Meyers-Briggs?
Last I checked I was ENTP, however when I was younger I consistently tested as INTP. I haven't taken a test since
attending law school and I think I have changed over this process.

### What are your pet peeves?
I hate when someone lies to me and I can't stand when someone chews loudly with their mouth open

### Do you consider yourself an introvert or an extrovert?
I don't like to consider myself as either to be honest. In the past when I saw myself as an introvert I felt more
apprehensive to socialize, and when I considered myself an extrovert I felt more pressure to socialize.

### Are you an animal person?
Absolutely. I have two cats at the moment (Sazerac and Paloma) but I have had all sort of animals when I was younger.
One of my life goals is to have a wild raven that hangs out with me when I go hiking in its area.

### What’s your favorite tv show to binge watch?
The one series I can always come back to again and again is King of the Hill.

### What’s your favorite meal to cook yourself?
I keep it simple when I'm cooking for myself. If someone else is involved though I'm a big fan of some sort of roast
with Mojo sauce.

### What kinds of book do you enjoy reading?
I'm a big fan of Jack Kerouac, David Graeber, and Neil Gaiman.

### What places are on your travel bucket list?
I hope to travel a bunch in my life, but one place I've always thought would be really fun to visit is the Basque region
of Spain.

### Do you prefer to fly or drive when you travel?
I love a good road trip. I used to drive the perfect little Blazer that barely slept two in the back that was great for
road trips. I do love the time you save with flying though. I also really like airports.

### Where would you move to if you could bring your friends and family with you?
I don't hate where I'm at currently.

### What was the best date you ever went on?
I got taken to this amazing Japanese restaurant recently. The uni was so good that I started crying.

### Who was your celebrity crush when you were in high school?
I have no idea. I probably just agreed with what everyone else said. My pop culture knowledge at that time was really
bad.

### What subjects did you most enjoy in school?
I've always liked math and physics. I thought I hated writing until I got to college and realized I loved writing about
specific topics

### What did you enjoy most about your last job?
I really enjoyed how much I learned. It was a dive into the unfamiliar so I was constantly learning new things.
