Jacob Bateman is a freshman Game Design and Management and Leadership double major. He lived in Channahon, Illinois for most of his life, but recently moved to Bloomington, Indiana before coming to Bradley University. In his spare time he enjoys playing video games, playing the bass guitar, writing, and world building. Creating games is something that he has always wanted to do, and now he is being given the opportunity to pursue it. He hopes that in the field, he can put to use his combined skills in programming, world building, and writing to create a game that he can be proud of.
