You will notice, if nothing else than by virtue of my grinning mug at the bottom, that this is not the intrepid Steph Wilson, the lifeforce that has sustained the Denver/Boulder edition of Sensi, the Mother of Magazines, the Haver of Cool Nicknames. Please, do not contact authorities! I assure you Steph is fine. In fact, she’s better than ever.
It’s fitting that our “What’s Next” issue kicks off with her transition into overseeing more periodicals than you can fill a hoarder’s living room with. She lives and breathes magazines in a way that makes you question if you’ve ever loved anything. Her coffee table book by the editors of New York magazine is so large I believe she’d need to check it with luggage on a flight.
Now, you’re stuck with me.
Hi, I’m Jake.
I’ll start off like every bad comedy set I’ve ever performed: “A little about myself …” The first time I ever smoked pot was with my friends from the debate team. I moved to Denver, sight unseen, in 2001 because I had a man-crush on Jack Kerouac. I once wanted to be a rapper and yes, I did destroy most of the evidence.
My first job in cannabis was working the front desk for my buddy Zac in 2009. My first crack at writing was our company blog, where I covered the backlogs for patients to receive their red cards (remember those?) and preserving the rights of caregivers. I’ve worked just about every job in the industry and freelance writing since. You may remember me as the cannabis critic for the Denver Post, a position I held for four years until I hung up my reviewing cleats in December. In retrospect, it would have been much easier without the cleats.
Through the years, I’ve been fortunate to work with some tremendous teams, but Sensi might just take the cake. Culture isn’t a lip service here; it’s a way of life. The way they’ve embraced me, trusted me, and supported me is truly humbling. Now, I’m looking forward to covering the city I’ve lived in and loved for almost two decades.
