I'm an independent self taught mobile app developer in Los Angeles having made the migration from personal computer games to mobile game apps. In the real world I like casino games most but at my work I am building quick playing abstract games that increase mindfulness. My philosophy of game design is naturally an Eastern one, less is more, short is long, small is big, empty is full, simple is elegant. My current game two thirds done utilizes the traditional Chinese characters to bridge the gap between Eastern and Western thinking.
