Jake Toranzo Szymanski was born on December 3rd 1994 in New York City to proud parents Giny and Joey Szymanski. He is part Polish, Irish and English from his dad and part Argentinean, Puerto Rican and Spanish from his mom. He has one younger sibling, a sister named Ava.

Jake began his acting career in 2001, when he was only 7 years old. In his early career, he appeared on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman’ and lent his voice to the animated movies ‘The Ant Bully’ and ‘Everyone’s Hero’.

Jake attends public school when he is home and his school sends work to him when he is away filming. “I go to public school and I love to write and everything and I have a lot of friends that I hang out with whenever I go back. So, when I'm not in Hollywood, I'm just a normal kid.” he shares.

His family owns a historic restaurant called ‘The Clarksville Inn’. The restaurant, located in West Nyack, New York, originally opened in 1840 as a hotel. Jake and his Disney Channel friends make sure to visit whenever they are in New York. The walls are lined with autographed photos of Jake and his co-stars. “It’s amazing how many people come in just to look at the pictures” says Jake.
