Jake Flaa
Field Producer
I grew up in Bemidji, MN with ample hunting and fishing opportunities always placed right in front of me. Through high school I did a lot of video work in our video production class. After graduating high school in 2010 I did one semester at BSU with my eyes set on Civil Engineering as my major but it was not the place for me.
