From that initial question, he proceeded to pioneer the effort to build an effective and affordable cognitive skills training tool using the best practices of video-game technology. He led the team that developed BrainWare SAFARI, which would become the leading cognitive skills development software program in education, winning many awards including the prestigious CODiE award for Best Education Game or Simulation.
