Epicenter of love.

Were you to take everything else away, I would still be a happy and grateful man because of the deep love I have for my wonderful family. They inspire me every day to do everything I can to help make the world a better place.

Jake Westphal

Jake Westphal is an IATSE Local 600 Digital Imaging Technician who lives and works in the Philadelphia area. When not on set he enjoys golf, snowboarding, photography, and taking his dog Jolene for walks in the park.


As Alpha of the Westphal household, Charlie wears many hats. He leads both the home and travel security teams, with a particular interest (Squirrel!) in delivery people and hotel room aromas! In addition to his security work, Charlie works as a greeter and also serves as the family therapist, specializing in the nuzzle and cuddle therapy techniques. In his spare time, Charlie enjoys napping by the fire and occasionally barking incessantly at absolutely nothing at all.


Gus is the newest, and youngest, member of the Westphal household. With no official duties yet, he is learning the ropes (and tugging them) from his big brother Charlie. He’s already started surveillance training by sniffing every single nook and cranny of his new world (usually in search of snacks). And he has proved to be an excellent combat-ready trainer for his big brother with an incessant barrage of sneak attacks, surprise brouhahas and full speed ambushes. When not in training you will find him performing love bombs on anyone who sits still long enough.
