Background

About Dan

I was a high school math teacher for three years through the Teach for America program. I have also been an avid video game player for as long as I can remember. I am now getting my MBA from the Marriott School of Business at BYU.

My dream is to create a comprehensive, curriculum based educational video game for middle-school and high-school aged students. The educational industry is moving progressively towards elearning, but currently there are no products that offer true video game solutions. There has been some gamification of elearning, with points and badges, but no one has created an immersive educational gaming experience.

I am currently building a very bare-bones prototype using a limited game-making software, but my programming skills are limited. I am looking for someone (or a group of people) who is (are) experienced in programming video-games. I can provide the educational content, game design framework, and business skills in getting this project off the ground. Please feel free to reach out with questions or to discuss the ideas underlying this project.
