I design all types of games, from physically active games (nontraditional sports) and educational games, to physical media games (cards and board games), to video games of any type for any platform. For me, designing games IS the play.
Full time, unless doing other full time educational projects or work.
My specialty is design--given any established scope and resources, I can optimize the design of any game and ensure the successful execution of whatever premise I'm given. I enjoy fine-tuning systems even more than concept development.
Huh? Other hobbies? What's that?
I've designed dozens of games of many types-my current projects are web-enhanced fitness promotion games. I recently completed my PhD coursework at the University of Missouri, where I studied the psychology of game design and fun.
