Anything else you want to say about the kinds of projects or people or organizations you’d like to work with?
The more the merrier! I like getting a LOT of people together, to do BIG things!

Art, Music, and Strategy-based concepts keep me movin'.
Games you’ve worked on ...
I've personally organized the Longest Concert in History, am currently doing a new one, and have broken the world record for Longest Ukulele Performance, twice.
What abilities would you bring to a collaboration?
I have not yet designed a game...but I've got some ideas! That's why I am here! :)

Events I've organized up until now have made local, regional, and national news.
I'm an experienced "hype man", and work with creative, never seen before concepts.
Three games you’ve played that have changed your life:
Monopoly taught me how to find what I call a "chain of need". A person may be unwilling to trade me something...but if I can find THEIR need, and trade someone ELSE for that, I can get what I want, and make everyone happy in the process. Sometimes that chain involves dozens, or even hundreds of people. That's the level at which I feel comfortable operating. Big group dynamics.

A handful of video games have had an impact. I'd say Harvest Moon most of all. I had a depressing winter one year and spent a lot of time playing that game. When spring came, I decided that growing vegetables on a video game was a good start...and started gardening in real life as well. I've since had a half-dozen lush vegetable gardens, and am also a trained natural builder. (straw, claw, etc).

Music in general would be the 3rd thing. I know that sounds strange, but if you ever let me bend your ear about it...you'll know what I mean. I've been involved in all kinds of music projects, with varying goals. It very often contains elements of gaming. There's even a tutoring technique in music instruction known as "The Game"

I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on (kayimivedor@gmail.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day.
