Playing By Air Productions is an entertainment company that bridges corporate events and social responsibility by donating performances to local causes with each event appearance. He launched Creativity Moves to inspire, empower, and connect individuals and organizations to make a difference through a spirit of creativity, entrepreneurship, and giving back to the community.

As a consultant and coach, he works with creative professionals, start-ups, and large organizations to transform their brands through new approaches to giving, listening, and community partnerships. Jacob Weiss has taken theater and the arts to a whole new level- using it from health to non-profits to corporate training. 

While earning his PhD from Vanderbuilt University in biomedical Informatics, Jacob led the collaborative development of an online community for cancer survivorship. The primary aims of the research were to define the local cancer survivorship community, identify its strengths and opportunities to improve, build an online community to address these opportunities, and evaluate the collaborative design and development of this online community. With all the literal juggling of a full carerer, Jacob still advocates for cancer awareness.
