Jake began competing in martial arts competitions at the age of 10, eventually earning a black belt in karate. He attended Westlake High School before transferring to an online school program to focus on his career.

Paul first gained fame on the video-sharing platform Vine, where he quickly gained millions of followers for his six second comedy videos. After Vine's closure in 2017, Paul transitioned to YouTube, where he has since become one of the biggest stars on the platform with over 20 million subscribers.

Later that year he co-starred with fellow YouTuber Alissa Violet in the short film “Airplane Mode” which received over 15 million views within its first week of release. 

Paul has also begun to venture into other forms of entertainment such as television and music production. He appeared as Dirk Mann on Disney Channel’s Bizaardvark from 2016 - 2018 and released his debut single “It's Everyday Bro” with Team 10 in May 2017 which peaked at number 79 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
