My mission is to make learning fun and super-effective. Break away from slow and boring courses!  I've been designing educational games and simulations for over 20 years.  My educational programs are used in thousands of schools, universities, and businesses around the world.

Millions of people of all ages have gained valuable life skills using my programs, including children, senior executives, people with special needs, inmates in prison, farmers in Africa, and every type of person in between.

I've designed software games and simulations, MMO role-playing games, board games, card games, toys, ebooks, and more.  All with a focus on making learning experiential, social, and gamified.

I hold patents in technology and learning and have founded and lead education and social media companies - MediaSpark.com, GoVentureWorld.com, lokol.com, and KleverToys.com.

Major companies and government agencies have hired me to solve their most difficult training challenges. I've worked with IBM, Cisco, HP, Intel, Procter & Gamble, US Federal Reserve, leading Banks, PwC, K12 Inc, and many others.

I'm now repackaging my innovative programs into self-directed courses so that they are widely available to anyone. I hope I can help you quickly and fearlessly gain new skills so that you can achieve your dreams in life.
