Jacob was born in Chicago, IL. As a child he had a fondness for playing video games and getting into trouble. When he isn’t busy recording new episodes of Gaming Buzz or TCG Buzz, you will most likely find him playing games (video games, board games and card games.) or hunting for deals at thrift stores and garage sales. Jacob has a love for cooking and is an amateur sushi chef. He is conversationally fluent in Japanese and hopes to travel to Japan. One of Jacob’s goals in life is to collect every issue of Nintendo Power.
