Launched Aleken Games in 2003 in Waukesha, WI. Our award-winning Triviologies product line has garnered celebrity endorsements and music industry acclaim. The products are rock and roll, country music trivia-themed games, calendars and promotional items. Since the advent of digital and the downturn in the economy (leaving many of our retailers out of business) production has been on hiatus. Have had inquiries from Activision (Guitar Hero) and Harmonix Music Systems (Rock Band) for digital partnerships but growth is down in their business units. Have had difficulty securing further investment due to economy to take products digital. In the meantime I have been working as a Visual Designer/UX designer for Fiserv (Brookfield) and have been providing creative and UX services to start-up Stackdriver (Boston).
Aleken Games is on hiatus, currently working full time for Fiserv, freelancing for Stackdriver in Boston through end of year and looking for to get involved in the next big thing. I offer agile and iterative product design and development, creative direction, user experience expertise, business strategy and plenty of war stories to go along with the successes.
