Joe Jasko

Joe Jasko is a graduate student at Pace University, where he is studying Publishing and all things related to books. He hopes to become a book editor one day, but of course his real dream is to put his Creative Writing degree to use writing those books himself. Joe has an unhealthy obsession with Ernest Hemingway and rewriting the same sentence for hours on end until he gets it just right.

Joe has had a love of video games for most of his life, ever since he played the very first Mega Man game back on the NES. His favorite games will always be those old platform-adventures like Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64, but action games like Dark Souls and Shadow of the Colossus also rank high on that list.

When he’s not gaming, Joe is a huge TV fanatic and leaves Cartoon Network on all day in the background while he writes. His favorite shows are Breaking Bad, Dexter, Home Movies, Archer and anything else on Adult Swim (a Frisky Dingo-themed sleeve tattoo is currently in the works). 

In addition to writing, Joe also sings, plays the guitar and writes songs for his acoustic recording project, Shell of Summer. Joe is also writing and animating his own cartoon, which he hopes to pitch to Adult Swim one day. It’s about a talking Popsicle named Randy who befriends an ex-convict rainbow. So yeah, there’s that.
