Anything else you want to say about the kinds of projects or people or organizations you’d like to work with?
As an entrepreneur, writer, and software project manager type, I'm most interested in how games can be applied to life. It'gamification, but currently I'm looking at it from its opposite... Instead of creating games to help us be successful at live, I'm looking at taking the games we already play and pull out life/business application. The goal is build the bridge from the gamer side to gamification to professional success.
Games you’ve worked on ...
Star Wars the Old Republic and Expansion MMORPG from Bioware.

A number of personal games my friends and I came up with.
What abilities would you bring to a collaboration?
I'm a super nerdy gamer dork!... but I hide it well :) I bring business acumen, project planning and completion skills, communication, and teacher/trainer skills to the party. I can help synthesize ideas while staying on task to hit milestone goals.
Three games you’ve played that have changed your life:
Advanced Dungeons and Dragons- So much life modeling in a short amount of time.

Cashflow 101 by Robert Kiyosaki- Discovering the correlation between assets and liabilities = DON'T BUY DOODADS!

Magic The Gathering- Life ain't fair, and someone always has better cards (they keep adding game breaking mechanics)... so we need to constantly adjust.

Hey All!

I have a question about how gamification and workification relate to one another.  I'm trying to come up with some thoughts on the missing quadrant below.  Its pretty important to the project I'm working on as its the premise of a whole series of blog posts I'm working on.

If any of you have any ideas I'd greatly appreciate it.
