Jake grew up in northwestern Ohio for most of his life. He was born in Angola, IN, and then he moved to Hicksville at 3 years old. He attended Hicksville Exempted Village Schools most of his life, until this year! So far, he loves Four County and thinks it's the best decision he's ever made.
Jake has loved video games ever since he was four years old. He grew up with the Wii, playing a lot of New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Donkey Kong Country Returns, and Toy Story 3. Since then, Jake has grown his love for video games by starting to collect old games dating all the way back to the late 70s with the Atari 2600. He has a collection of about 100 retro games across a span of five systems, and it'll keep growing!
Jake likes to collect. His first experience with retro games was with a Game Boy Color and Pokemon Blue. From then on, the collection of Game Boy games grew. Then, he got an Atari 2600, then an NES, then a GameCube, then a SNES. The collection will continue to grow, I know it. For as long as he has a wishlist (which continues to grow), the collection itself will grow. Jake has also started a small, but growing vinyl record collection. So far, he has four 45 RPM records, those being "Dancing Queen"/"That's Me" from ABBA, "Sh-Boom"/"Earth Angel" from The Crew Cuts, "September"/"Love's Holiday" from Earth, Wind, and Fire, and "Take Me Home, Country Roads"/"Poems, Prayers, and Promises" from John Denver.
