Andrew Kinch – GameAware Founder
As a gamer for 30 years, a teacher for 15 and a parent of 2, my skillset is primed to tackle this issue.
I love video games. I love the immersion, the skill, the competition and the community. That being said, in the past I’ve had the experience of stepping over the line where video games took up way too much of my time and affected me in ways I didn’t expect. That’s why I’m going to know exactly what our gamer is feeling, and how to get buy-in for a healthier and more sustainable way to enjoy their passion. The goal is to minimize compulsion and other negative impacts from gaming too much, and maximize gaming performance and enjoyment, while engaging better in real life.
