Okay, I’m embarrassed to say it’s been over a year since I posted to my blog. I could give you so many excuses, I’m too busy doing other job responsibilities, I was confused about what I should actually write about, I didn’t know anymore what the focus should be for my blog, etc… After all, I was told to write a blog for ThinkFun but was never given any guidance about what was expected. So many times in the last year I’ve had people say, “I really love(d) reading your blog”. That always surprised me. I thought, “Really? You read it?” I always thought just my mom read it. But apparently not, there are a few more than her.
So now I’ve decided I have to get back to it. I want to write about what gives me the most joy in my “hunting” position for ThinkFun. What is that you may ask? Is it the puzzle solving I get to do and get paid for? Is it about the process I head in developing all our single game challenges? Is it all the new cool product and puzzles I get to see? Nope. Although all of those things are really cool, the BEST part of my job is the people I get to meet and the relationships I have been honored to build with these really cool people. I have been so lucky in my life to travel the world meeting really incredible people. I’ve already written about some of them here like my dear friend Martin Gardner. So let me tell you more about the people I’ve been blessed to meet. People from the Toy and Game Industry, the mathematics community and the puzzle community and who knows what else. Some you might know, some you may never have heard of but all of them mean something to me. Hope you enjoy!
