My name is Jay Kinsel, but most people call me Jake. I will be returning to World Campus International this summer for my second time as your Production Manager. I am from the great state of Texas but I have been living in Colorado for the better part of 15 years.
I can’t begin to express how excited I am to return to a country as unique and inspiring as Japan and I am honored to have this opportunity. I look forward to the countless stories that we will write together.
Along with assisting everyday needs during the tour, I am responsible for producing and teaching our Arigato Event at the end of each city. I have a BFA in Theatre from Stephen F Austin University in Texas, USA. I am excited about the opportunities that our event gives us to really connect and communicate with the communities we encounter.
Currently I am a teacher in Colorado while I work to open a soccer facility in the area. After theatre, soccer is my second great love and if you have a hard time finding me at home, you can surely find me on the field doing my best not to grow up too quickly.
I love to travel too, learn about, and experience as many places as I possibly can and World Campus International has given me the chance to do those things and more. More importantly, I have developed friendships and memories that will shape my life forever.
The journey we are about to begin will be added to the experiences that define us. I can’t wait to get to know each and every one of you as we take each step through the summer.
