    I've been involved in establishing and guiding several start-ups. I am passionate about making awesome games that build on strong design methodologies. I have been for over 10 years in design positions, managing people and teams in building great games. I am thrilled by technology and gamification in our current era, to empower humans for a better living condition. I am specialized in game design, user experience, game production and creative direction. The shipped products have been downloaded over 30 million times and AAA PC and console games have sold over 12 million copies worldwide. My ultimate goal: Ship great games, empower talented indie developers and continue learning about building new games with new game design paradigms, and building great companies and start-ups in the gaming and IT sector.
