Who are you (a short bio, your LinkedIn profile)?

Background in game design, specialty in systems - the stuff of truly epic complexity. From there moved into product management when teams (and their utmost importance to the success of any project) caught my eye. Since then I've been focused on elements of company design, and it was inevitable that I one day build my own.

What are your skills, talents and interests (e.g. Ruby, NodeJS, iOS, Lean Startup, Angel Investing)?

Game design: systems, mechanics, balance, math, levels, writing, structure, UI, UX, flow, community, metagame, monetization, etc, etc, etc. I like designing stuff, but I'm focusing on a different area of skills to develop. Code: C, C++, C#, and various scripting languages. I don't like programming. Product Management: Game design, technical background, lean/SCRUM/Core Protocols, team creativity empowerment, prioritization, being open with the team, exploring for the "best idea," and welcoming "why" questions. Learning: company design, culture design, team-building, fundraising, networking, crowdfunding, personal time management, and how to learn on the job without a mentor/boss.

What is your startup company or project? (include AngelList profile if you have one)

A company that builds teams (like an incubator on the sly). Our first team is ourselves, and we are are making a mobile game that's a cross between Magic and Go: "Get your 5 minute strategy fix!" https://angel.co/0xbdf

Are you interested in acquiring coworking space?

No.

Introduction

Hi! I've started a company with some friends and we have a Kickstarter around the corner in August. First-time founder, looking for new friends and knowledge.
