Jackson Laumann

Game Design Junior – 2023

Hello, my name is Jackson Laumann. I am a junior Game Design Major from Minnesota. My expertise lies in programming. I got hooked on programming in early middle school and have been creating games ever since. I find myself devoting plenty of free time to my projects as I have been the primary programmer for every project I work on, but I enjoy it. I have experience doing just about everything in Unity, from a turn-based AR RPG to an online PvP battle royale. My devotion has caught the attention of Volition, as I will be developing design tools for them this summer.
