Hi! I'm Jacob and I'm an experienced level designer with 4 shipped titles and a Professional Certificate in Digital Games Development from the Guildhall at Southern Methodist University. Before games, I earned a Master of Science in Higher Education Administration and cherished my time working with students, but had to follow my passion. It was my combined love for games, mentorship, art, analytical thinking, and social sciences that led me to further pursue my career in game development. 


The first video game I remember playing was Super Mario Brothers on the NES with my father; I have been playing games of all sorts ever since. Some of my favorite video games have included Halo, Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Donkey Kong CountryMinecraft, F-Zero, and Fortnite. I also enjoy DND, board games like Settlers of Catan, and I'm always up for a good kickball match with friends and colleagues.

When I am not playing games, I enjoy exploring new places and snapping photos out in nature; I have travelled to or through all but 8 states in the USA. I also like to relax by listening to music while playing along on my drum kit or by engaging in other artistic pursuits such as painting (see painting below).
