Anything else you want to say about the kinds of projects or people or organizations you’d like to work with?
I am a management consultant. (Woo, I know). I'm also a visual facilitator. I've recently become fascinated / mildly obsessed with the idea of gamification in the workplace. I need people to help me get my fix. The 4 books I bought / devoured this week aren't enough.
Games you’ve worked on ...
I've only created games for my own entertainment and creative process. I have created a reality show game called Karma. And multiple interactive puzzle / scavenger hunt games for friends.
What abilities would you bring to a collaboration?
I am interested in collaborating to bring gaming into the business consulting field. I have almost 20 years Big 6 consulting experience. I'm also a visual facilitator (see www.ifvp.org for info). My specialties are change management, communications, and learning & development.
Three games you’ve played that have changed your life:
I learned Canasta when I was 3 and could barely hold the cards. Taught me strategy and patience and the joy of a big payoff.
Carcassonne -- taught me that not all games are about win-lose. They can be about co-building.
Dixit - taught me that visuals both clarify thinking AND leave room for personal meaning.
