Jacob Barsheff

I am excited to be apart of the STG Team! I graduated from St. Francis high school, which is located in Traverse City, in 2017. Not knowing what I wanted to do with my life, I took some web development courses at Northwestern Michigan College. I quickly started to enjoy programming and ended up staying for two years. In those two years I learned a lot about databases, desktop applications, and web development. I transferred to Lansing Community College this fall and will be continuing my education in computer programming. After just my first couple of classes at Northwestern Michigan College, I wanted to find an internship that I could use to further grow as a web developer. Therefore, becoming a part of the STG Team is an honor and I really look forward to working with and getting to know everyone here.

Some of my personal hobbies include working out, knee boarding, Jet Skiing, and learning new programming languages/frameworks.
