Please join us in welcoming summer intern Jake! Intern Nicki will be introduced later this week!
Hello, gamers! My name is Jake, and I’m one of the summer interns at Calliope! I’m going into grade eleven at Nikola Tesla S.T.E.M. High School in Redmond. My extracurriculars include karate, Model United Nations participation, presidency in debate club, membership in the Technology Student Association, membership in the Redmond Youth Partnership Advisory Committee, and tutoring in math and Spanish.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing of a variety of instruments, including piano, cello, and guitar. I prefer playing classical pieces, so I practice the piano and cello significantly more. I adore reading novels, especially cyberpunk and weird-fiction, and, of course, playing games.
My favorite Calliope games are Tsuro: Asteroid Escape and Roll For It!. I also love Dominion and Concept. In the future, I plan to go to the University of Waterloo in Ontario (near Kitchener) for statistics and actuarial science or applied mathematics. During my summer with Calliope, I hope to gain an understanding of how a tabletop game company functions in general.
