My name is Scott Jacobson and I was born at Fairchild Air Force Base outside of Spokane, WA in 1962 and it wasn't until 1978 that I saw my first personal computer, a TRS-80 Model I™ with a whopping 8K of memory. It belonged to a buddy so I never actually got to use it. Later that summer my father, a night librarian at the local college, brought me to work with him where they had a TRS-80 Model II™ (with 16K RAM and a cassette tape drive!). The first game I played was called "Taipan" and it took about 15 minutes to load. Next to the computer was a manual on BASIC programming so it wasn't long before I had made a few games. The first was a text Psychiatrist, the next an ASCII Slot Machine, and later I made an impressive "3D" dungeon game with randomly generated dungeons mazes and monsters, all under 16 KBytes!
I got married to the love of my life in 1983, had 2 boys, graduated from the University of Idaho earning a B.S. in Secondary Education with an emphasis in the physical sciences, mathematics and computers and currently teach science and technology at the exemplary Lake City High School. After school I advise Lake City Game Creators.
I love to make engaging learning experiences, re-playable games and fun apps! Collaborating on social impact projects is my passion. If you have a game idea I like and a clear description/storyboard I might just prototype it for you!
