Why do you enjoy being an instructor at Eleven Fifty?
I love helping people get over that hump of understanding so they can speed on down the road.
Tell us about your background in Tech.
I did a lot of engineering and modeling in high school. I taught myself graphic design as a teenager. I eventually went for Mechanical Engineering until I ran out of money. After COVID-19 I went to EFA for Software Engineering.
When did you know you were interested in Tech?
As a young kid I was obsessed with robots and mechanics. I did the FIRST robotics program in high school through Purdue. I was fascinated and super involved with every step from design to machining. At the time I had no experience with coding but now have the full skill set for it top to bottom.
A fun fact about Jacob!
If you ever heard of the Ouya I had art in 3 of the top 20 games on the console. I’ve made Chrome themes that totaled over 3.5 million installs.
