Employment
  • NISM
    Advisor & Contibutor, 2010 - present
    I first joined the National Institute of Social Media (NISM) as SME and voluntary contributor. I drafted close to 60-80% of the items in the first iteration of the exam. I was also heavily involved in the psychometrics and balancing of the exam. Today, I function as Secretary on the Board of Advisors. I am very detail-oriented and enjoy documentation so this is a role I quite enjoy. We are in the process of refining the exam and exploring new offerings. Please note that this is a consultant capcity role and I am not a full-time employee of the NISM.
  • Geeky Antics Network Global
    Founder, 2013 - present
    We are building a media network and syndication platform for geeks worldwide. The goal is to eventually be profitable without killing the creative freedom and authenticity of a smaller network or site. I know we can do it and we're already assembling some great talents and passionate geeks. The future looks AWESOME!
  • HorsePLAY! LIVE
    Co-Host, 2013 - present
    Join us over at the ObioneX2 Twitch channel at 11pm EDT every Thursday, as well as my own Yogizilla-branded social media outposts for a podcast dedicated heavily to LoL, Hearthstone, gaming, technology, and all things geeky. We provide a balanced, fresh perspective for old-school, hardcore, and casual gamers alike.
  • Social Prize
    Co-Founder, 2011 - 2013
    I came into the Social Prize project as consultant and helped the founding partners gain traction. Eventually, I became a partner myself but, due a conflict of core principles and vision, we decided it was best to part ways. Still, I love the concept of crowdsourcing influence, promotion, and other things so I see this as a growing space if people can do it right and see the greater vision.

I'm not one for tooting my own horn (so I'll spare you the boring resume-style machine-gunning of achievements and credentials) but I've been involved with game design and web development since the early nineties.. And I'm still learning. That's the beauty of technology: we can always learn new ways to unlock it's full potential.

 I programmed one of my first applications, a fun little video game that combined Arkanoid (block breaker) and pinball game mechanics, roughly around 1993.  Before that, I had used mostly BASIC to develop simple database applications for personal inventory and quick search purposes.

Like most around that time, I got sucked in by the lure of hefty salaries and cool gadgetry (like the first RIM and Nextel devices).  I pursued IT only to learn that it wasn't what truly fulfilled me.  As such, I moonlighted quite a bit and have been fortunate to learn many skills which I continue to refine today.

My perspective on business is quite unique.  I've been a contractor, full-time employee, ghost writer, temp, moonlighter, and currently self-employed.  I've played the field from virtually every position possible and took on various roles.  Heck, I've even worn the teacher and trainer hats!  Those younget, more innocent (translation: "naive") days fun and a great learning experience (translation: "not always profitable").

One thing I enjoy is taking my creative skills and passion for game mechanics, finding ways to infuse businesses with new life.  The business world needs more soul (please stay away from my brain, zombies) and I can help!

One challenge I've faced as a passionate professional: I really do love the art of what I do and the overall creative process.  I have not been published (much) mainly because I do what I do for the love of it (ah, yes, the 'ol labor of love)..  I've learned you do have to be a *little* selfish sometimes, however, and it is possible to do what you love AND make a living.  I like to help others do the same.

If you'd like to get to know me and learn how I may be able to help you, please visit http://yomar.me - I look forward to seeing you there!
Bragging rights
I've managed to work from home and maintain a household of 9.. I'd like to brag but God's grace has kept me patient and mostly sane. A good sense of humor doesn't hurt, either. LOL
