Jacob Farmer is a tech writer for Savvy. As a screenwriter, he has written for the television show iZombie, and co-created the indie web series Language Academy, which is both award-winning and largely unseen. He is also a freelance writer and copywriter, with original features appearing in the gaming publication EGM.
As a Florida kid who currently lives in California, Jacob has always appreciated a healthy dose of sunlight and the nearest body of water. If he’s not reading a book outside, he’s probably zoning out on a walk, fiddling with a guitar, watching FSU athletics on TV, or playing video games with his girlfriend. Once a football player, Jacob now dreams of achieving the perfect down dog. He still has a long way to go.
Jacob was first introduced to the concept of frugality at around age six when his mother handed him five dollars in a local Walmart and told him to “go crazy." Since then, he’s always tried to consider the relationship between quality and cost when making a purchase, whether it be for the latest gaming system, a new laptop, at-home exercise equipment (hello resistance bands!), or a musical instrument. Jacob believes identifying needs first will help lead to a well-informed decision.
