Jake is currently in the process of curating over 19 years of projects, skills and experiences since publishing his first website to Geocities in 1997 while studying at Malaspina University-College (now Vancouver Island University) in Nanaimo, BC. He graduated from the ITAS (Information Technology and Applied Systems) program at the top of his class and was the program's second graduate to cross the stage to receive his two-year diploma from the then newly created ITAS program.
Done is better than perfect
While he would like to put more hours into perfecting this portfolio, there is a lot of other work with higher priorities that needs to be completed first (such as the portfolio pieces!) This site was re-launched at the end of August, 2016 to start re-gaining some footing in the search engines after being dormant for a few years.
Jake is primarily a back-end programmer and web administrator and is currently working at breathing life back into some web applications he wrote in PHP quite some time ago, including this web portfolio. Most of the projects he is currently working on reside on local webservers in VMWare.
