About MR Andrzej Christopher Marczewski

Father of two, husband (of one - because bigamy is frowned upon apparently...), reasonable guitarist, games lover, Batman nerd and Star Wars geek. Over the years I have had a few jobs, from web designer, to learning technologist to consultant. What has always remained the same is my belief that games have much more to offer the world than just entertainment. This led me to getting involved with gamification in my spare time. Now I am lucky enough to be a recognised expert on the topic. Writing a regular blog about gamification, speaking on the topic, consultant and solution designer.show more
