June 23, 2014

There’s an on-going struggle at my house to get my children to use less screen time (iPads or iPhones, TV, or video games). My wife actually does an amazing job keeping the kids our circus at bay with this and from what I can tell, their screen time is below the average. However, its still […]

Running a mobile game studio (Dragon Army) requires me to play a lot of mobile games. I know, sucks right? :) Last week I wrote about a mobile game I love, Duet Game, and this week I thought I’d write about a few games I’m testing out. I haven’t fallen in love with any of […]

Living in the inbox

June 11, 2014

If it’s in my inbox, it gets done. It’s that realization that I came to about six months ago that made me fully embrace email rather than run from it.  I have tried almost every possible solution to managing the work day ( meaning communication, task management and general organization/priorities).
