Product Development

I love creating and inventing.  Here are a few of the products I've developed.


CATEGORY:  Team Building Games -- One of my great passions is helping young people learn team and leadership skills.  I've had great success teaching using fun and engaging experiential learning exercises (games).  I've licensed these games to the three largest companies supplying physical education equipment in the United States with one company having partners in Australia and Europe.  I've licensed these products so I can leverage my impact - - by working with these companies I can now positively impact the lives of more kids.

TeamTimbers -- A portable multi-use "ropes course". I designed the metal bracket so it could be attached to a standard 2x6x6 piece of lumber.  The unique bracket allows the TeamTimbers to be configured into a box, zig-zag, giant "trust-V", diamond, and plus sign (+). The different shapes lend themselves to different types of games.  The metal bracket went through many iterations so that it could be easily and inexpensively mass produced.   Licensed to Flaghouse.

 

 

 

Team Spots - 10 Activity Game System -- One theme that runs through the products I develop is "multi-use" and this is a great example.  30 vinyle "spots" (12 inch diameter) that you can use to lead 10 team building games.  Licensed to Gopher Sport.

Object Retrieval Team Building Game System -- This game system was created out of necessity. This game system can be used with fourth graders on Monday and corporate execs on Tuesday (yes, that does happen with my training schedule).  Licensed to Gopher Sport

TAG Bag - 75 Activity Team Builder Pack -- "TAG" stands for "Team Adventure Gear".  I developed this product for Gopher Sport to provide teamwork facilitators with a super portable team building game system.  I also developed all the written material for this product (lead-it-yourself game descriptions) and published them on a multimedia training CD developed on my iMac. Licensed to Gopher Sport.

UltraWeb Team Building Game System -- One of my favorite team building games is called the "Spider's Web" however it's a pain to setup and transport.  The UltraWeb solves that problem while creating many more super cool activities.  Licensed to Sportime / School Specialty.

Team Traks Team Building Game -- The TeamTraks were created after I received a call from a group in California that was in need of a team building session.  One of the activties I wanted to lead was based around this game but the traditional way to lead it involved 12 foot long 4x4 boards which are heavy and hard to transport.  I needed something that I could carry on the plane and in the trunk of a taxi.  Licensed to Sportime / School Specialty.

Puzzling Moves Tangram -- This game is based on the ancient puzzle game from China.  It's a powerful teambuilding activity that fits in a duffle bag.  Licensed to Sportime / School Specialty.

Maze-n-Moves Team Building Game -- Licensed to Sportime / School Specialty.

Group Loop Team Building Game System --  Licensed to Sportime / School Specialty.
