Hi! I'm Jacob Hanser, I'm a Woodinville High graduate and soon-to-be University of Washington Bothell graduate as well (senior year).
Passions and pasttimes include:
-Playing and learning about video games
My most prevalent flaw is that sometimes I occasionally experience drops in motivation to work on things partway through them, but my strengths lie in creativity, writing, knowledge of the arts and a distaste for compromising artistic integrity. I'm also pretty funny, but who isn't nowadays? I work very well independently, but I'm also a decent team player. I like to expose myself to media and ideas from all sorts of genres, mediums, and cultures because having a rounded worldview is very important to both me and my artistic process. My personal idols include game developer Edmund McMillen and musicians Roger Waters and Damon Albarn.
I am fascinated by the ways that different forms of art media can be fused together to create unique and enriching experiences, and interactive media (particularly video games) have had a very profound impact on my life.
I am planning on working in the video game industry, whether that be as a reviewer, a creator, a developer, or what-have-you. I'm also very interested in animation, editing, and video production in general, and as a hobby/part time job, I make humorous videos for a Youtube channel and stream on Twitch.
