WHO WE ARE
Hailing from a small town in Southern Illinois, Jake has always loved creating things in the digital media realm. After moving to Saint Louis to work for a digital agency, he met Matt at August Gate Church, where they immediately began having conversations about the current racial tensions in America. He is the co-founder and co-host along with Matt and in charge of all things media for Coffee and Cream. Jake is a voracious reader and serves on the social and graphics team at his local church. He loves hanging out with his wife and baby girl Romy, listening to podcasts, and occasionally playing with his cat, Hobbes.
Growing up in a multi ethnic and multi cultural world, Matt has always had a desire to see diversity in his life and in the church. As a co-host and co-founder of Coffee and Cream Podcast, part of his responsibilities are scheduling guest, topic development, vision planning, and contributing to the C&C blog. Matt loves spending time with his fianceé Amanda, lifting weights, and reading books in his free time.
As an Air Force veteran, David is what make Coffee and Cream soar. As a graduate of Webster University in Audio Production, his love for professionalism is heard in every episode as our audio wizard. When he's not making Coffee and Cream sound amazing, David is fixing cars and hanging out with his wife and son, Silas.
