If my life story were a game, it would be a cross between ...
Life, Anti-monopoly, and apples to apples
Most people know me as a (check all that apply) ...
Game Developer, Game Designer, Writer, Entrepreneur, Student, Marketing Genius, Lifelong Gamer
When it comes to my game-making career, I'm ...
a newbie (no game experience ... yet!)
Kinds of games I’m best known for making or want to be known for making someday (check all that apply) ...
Simulations, Art and Experimental games, Board games, Card games, Educational games, Marketing and promotional games, Workplace / enterprise / productivity games
Will collaborate for
Creative fulfillment and fun, Free food, Experience and mentorship, School credit, Money, Big money, A chance at a Nobel Prize
Anything else you want to say about the kinds of projects or people or organizations you’d like to work with?
I like to deal in games that cultivate a sense of Civic Intelligence, that is, games that deal with creating and nurturing a community. Games are a great medium to change perspective. Pretending to be something is only a small step away from being something.
Games you’ve worked on ...
The first game I prototyped was called "SPRAWL!" and was about the impact that wanton expansion had on resources and policy creation both domestic and foreign.
What abilities would you bring to a collaboration?
Boundless Optimism. I've been called an idealist by many, but I don't think my ideas are idealistic, I think they're just a step away. All we need is a little help.
Three games you’ve played that have changed your life:
New World of Darkness - My first foray into telling an interactive story. Now as a GM, I would do things completely different, but hindsight is 20/20.

Dangerous Dave - The first virtual game I can remember playing. On windows 3.1. There were 10 levels and no saves. I didn't beat it until I was 16, and even today I still have to cheat.

MSG - A collaborative Story Game that challenges players to live in a corporatocracy and still find a way to fight back.

Posted on August 23, 2012 at 3:29pm 0 Comments

Selfishness is the key to content creation in any social network. You are there to talk about yourself. Your prefrences. Your problems. Your projects. Your baby. Your lunch. Your favorite beer. Your favorite game. I'm creating this content so you can read it. In return, I expect feedback. Why?

Because I've put effort into it. I took time from my day, made myself a cup of coffee, turned off the TV, and DEVOTED myself to creating something for you. I want to inspire you. I want to…
