Murdoc has over twenty-three years of experience in emerging and broadcast media and events, digital advertising, and data/attribution. Along with that expertise came a radio personality, music director, podcaster, and magazine publisher, among other jobs that can’t be named in most corporate biographies. They once let him try to announce a rodeo with little success. Murdoc is currently serving as the President of The HomeSlice Group – a diverse company with a focus on events, media, and entertainment. He also hosts a weekly podcast called “The Book of Murdoc”

In 2022 Jake came up just short in an election to represent District 2 in the State House. Jake was quite literally bottle fed on the State Senate floor and has been involved in politics ever since.
