If my life story were a game, it would be a cross between ...
The Legend of Zelda and Minecraft. I wish.
Most people know me as a (check all that apply) ...
Writer, Marketing Genius, Hacker, 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) ...
Board games, Educational games, Marketing and promotional games
Will collaborate for
Creative fulfillment and fun, Experience and mentorship, 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'm currently working on FinancialFirsts.org, and I need help gamifying the content! I'm building the entire thing from framework to gamework. Any ideas would be super appreciated. How do you motivate 8-12th graders to learn how not to go in debt?
What abilities would you bring to a collaboration?
Programming experience, lots of fiction writing experience, and a mind for complex puzzles.
Three games you’ve played that have changed your life:
Minecraft (PC) got me interested in programming. Agricola (board) taught me exactly how beautiful game design can be, and Call of Cthulhu (tabletop), taught me that games require no graphics to be outstanding.

Hi Tom. Welcome. I've sent you a friend request. I think there are things we could collaborate on. I believe I might be able to help with what motivates 8-12th graders and you might be able to teach me about marketing.
