Developer Biography

Jake is a games junkie.

Starting at age 5, he's played on an Atari 2600, an Apple II, Commodore 64, game consoles and all sorts of PC's. It was games that first got him interested in programming, but lets get serious, no one gets a job making video games. Thinking he had to get a real job he started working for an investment company, but that sucked the life out of him. He had fun as a Scuba instructor, but there was still something missing. Realizing that his first and true love was video games, he made the pilgrimage to the Northwest and joined the Total Annihilation team. After playing an instrumental role on Total Annihilation and the Core Contingency, he joined up with Chris to found Gas Powered Games. Now as Vice President, Jake has a real job ... and it's making games!
