I make and sell widgets and I like helping others make and sell their widgets.

What I’m currently working on , thinking about and/or studying , in all the free time that I have:
- Machine Learning / AI . I’m a bit behind on the classwork this week 😉
- Developing a blockchain platform and use cases for a blockchain digital asset management
How to use gamification and/or game thinking and/or positive psychology to: Increase performance & productivity ( and no, it’s not about badges and keeping score ) Drive innovation Solve BIG problems Create engagement Create great and meaningful stuff Generate your best life possible . Yeah I know , that last one is dangerously close to sounding all new-age-y 🙂
- I think that’s enough to keep me busy 🙂
Here is a presentation I did on Gamification a while back for the NorthWest Market Research Association
Some other stuff about me
I live in Portland, Oregon. But Location is really immaterial when you can work online and on the phone.
I love to solve problems and love working out processes.
I don’t like to use buzz words.
Everything I know how to do I generally know by doing.
I’m smarter than the average bear. It’s true, while bears are pretty smart as animals go, I’m pretty sure I graduated high school.
I learn and absorb disparate things quickly and can find connections and relevancy in a snap. However, my kid kicks my butt at Connect 4.
I can usually train others in something I just learned how to do yesterday.
I can hit the ground running and implement anything I know with the right team.
I’m the guy people call on when it hits the fan. I’m like Mr. Wolf, I solve problems.
