About Me

Hi, my name is Jake Velicer, and I am an aspiring game designer extremely interested in creating passionate storytelling experiences for it is those types of games that drove me to this major in the first place. I’ve always had fun letting stories impact me on an emotional level and video games allow me to take the driver seat when it comes to experiences like that.

I chose Bradley University as it’s program is a good fit for me and my learning style. I have had great experiences here so far and am learning new things as a creative everyday. I have learned programs from the Adobe creative suite to the Unity game engine which are all extremely relevant to the industry. It’s a fun place to be.

My ultimate career goal is to be a part of making impactive, interactive storytelling experiences via it be through video games, movies, VR, 360 video, or any other mediums that come about. I want be apart of projects that make people feel.
