I love what I do and helping people like you achieve your goals.
I am a professional cryptoeconomist working with enterprise clients and am an award-winning game designer with credits on more than 50 shipped titles worth $800+ million in revenue. I was the design lead on 8 Magic: The Gathering sets, including Rise of the Eldrazi, Avacyn Restored, and Time Spiral.
This experience turns out to be highly relevant to the new field of tokenomics, which involves designing mechanisms for digital assets, modeling and balancing complex virtual economies, and using game theory to motivate users to act in the best interest of the network.
I currently lead tokenomics, analysis, and token design for cryptocurrencies and other digital asset projects at the Predixa Group LLC, a research and advisory firm company I founded to help clients design the right token ecosystem and mechanisms for their business needs. Predixa provides information and in-depth cryptoeconomic audits for leaders in tech, IT, engineering, blockchain, enterprise, marketing, and financial analysts. Clients include: NEM Group Ltd., Radix, and Cerebral Fix.
I am a passionate learner and creative lateral thinker. I’m a member of the Triple Nine Society (A high IQ organization for those with proctored test scores in the 99.9th percentile.) I hold a MBA in Economics from the University of Washington - Michael G. Foster School of Business.
My published books include: The Game Inventors Guidebook, The Complete Encyclopedia of Magic: The Gathering, and Magic: The Gathering Complete Encyclopedia Vol. 6.
Awards I've received: Best Collectible Card Game Expansion of the Year 2009 for "Magic: The Gathering - Shards of Alara", Mensa Select Best Game Award 2002 for Curses!, Origins Gamer's Choice Award 2004, Takara Tomy Game of the Year Award 2004, and won the Toastmasters Area 43 International Public Speaking Competition.
Lastly, I'm a father of 3 kids and have been married to my wife, Alexandra Tinsman, for 24 years. In our downtime, we have published numerous boardgames together including Curses, Curses Expansion, Curses! of the Vampire, Angel Quest - The Random Acts of Kindness Cards, and Cosmic Balance - The Boardgame of Angels & Demons.
