Of Doing Well, Doing Good, and Lifting As You Climb


Meet Garvey, the Paladin, and learn his ways. How he turned his life around from being a troll to living in the service of others. How he breaks down game mechanics to apply them to life and consequently, at one time in his life, ending up on the cover of the New York Sunday Times. The Head of Education and Government Affairs at Nodwin Gaming takes you on a ride from the streets of Brooklyn all the way to the Philippines, giving you his two cents about how gaming changed his life over and over again and how he applies his learnings to educate and mentor the younger generation.
