Jake Pierle began cosplaying in 2007 as his favorite character, Spider-Man. In 2014, he attended his first convention as Captain America. Since then, he has worked his way up to over a dozen costumes, with more on the way. Also a member of Heroes Alliance, Jake especially enjoys working with charities and non-profits to promote good causes. Like many of his cohorts from CosAwesome, Jake enjoys building costumes and props for himself and others. Jake strives to not only embody the looks and personalities of his characters but their abilities, using his time as a martial arts instructor to train the moves and techniques of the characters he cosplays.
