My name is Jake ‘Cobba’ Stevens, and I am studying a Bachelor of Journalism (Sport) at Melbourne’s La Trobe University. I created and edit this website as part of my studies in 2013. I’m always on the look out for Broadcast, Journalism or Design career opportunities, so if you’ve got any ideas, let us know here. (Resume at LinkedIn)
This blog is based around the idea of Information graphics or infographics. I’ve always been fascinated with statistics, and I’ve found best way to communicate these numbers was to turn it into a visual display. Scattered throughout this blog, these infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge, often told into a story-like manner.
I’m a big follower of the AFL (Swannies tragic), athletics, cycling, tennis and other sports, so naturally, I combined my loves to create the various graphs, stats and infographics that you see here on this site.
I’m a Mornington Peninsula local, and I enjoy running, in particular, the 800m. Read about my athletics story here!
In case you were wondering, ‘Cobba’ stems from my full name, Ja’cob’. The old term of ‘Cobber’ is undoubtedly Australian, something I am very proud of. It’s also another word for mate, something I think reflects my friendly personality.

Cobba also writes for The Footy Almanac.
