Non-gamer turning life into fun games
Victoria Ichizli-Bartels is a writer, coach, and consultant with a background in semiconductor physics, electronic engineering (with a Ph.D.), information technology, and business development.
While being a non-gamer in the traditional sense, Victoria came up with the term Self-Gamification, a gameful and playful self-help approach bringing anthropology, kaizen, and gamification-based methods together to increase the quality of life.
She approaches all areas of her life this way. Due to the fun she has, while turning everything in her life into games, Victoria intends never to stop designing and playing them. Inspired by a tip from friends, she now likes to call herself a “life-gamer.”
Victoria is the author of many books, a top writer in Gaming and Ideas on Medium, and an online course instructor on turning life into fun games.
Victoria was born and grew up in Moldova, lived in Germany for twelve years, and since 2008, lives in Aalborg, Denmark, with her husband and two children.
