This is my personal blog–for more professional or technical content, please see my dev.to page

Hello! My name is Jake. I grew up in Pennsylvania and Kalamazoo, Michigan. In 2018 I graduated from Michigan State University with a major in Computer Science and a minor in Mathematics.

While I was at Michigan State I worked in the DIB lab under Dr. Titus Brown and later in the Devolab under Dr. Charles Ofria as an undergraduate research assistant. I conducted some research but mostly functioned as a junior software engineer, supporting the libraries the labs used for their research.

Now I’m an engineer at TechSmith Corporation, producing screen capture software. I’m learning to work in Objective-C, Swift, and C++.

In my free time I play more games than I should, nurture an obsession with science fiction, play with my dog, and fiddle with various pieces of hardware and software.
