His unique approach to scoring can be heard in films like “Pawn" starring Forrest Whitaker, Ray Liotta, and Michael Chiklis, and several of the WIGS series starring Julia Stiles, America Ferrera, and Dakota Fanning. Jacob is the resident composer for the American Studio Orchestra at Johns Hopkins University and the Maryland Institute of Collegiate Arts.
In addition to scoring films, Jacob Yoffee composes and arranges concert works, and he has produced several records for Big Bands, Neo-Soul groups, Jazz, and Contemporary Pop groups.
