Born in Little Rock, Arkansas, raised in Slinger, Wisconsin, Jake is currently an undergraduate at UW-Madison studying Computer Science. He is also an avid hackathon enthusiast. His first foray into the hackathon world was at MadHacks, Madison’s national hackathon, where he and his team designed the ever so useful “Is It My Birthday?” app. No longer a participant, when not writing web code for Internet Scout, Jake spends his time writing web code for MadHacks. Outside of his coding career, Jake can be found on the tennis courts, hiking trails around the world (most recently Mt. Lodestone in New Zealand), or taking care of his betta fish, Chester.
