Game Time: A Brilliant Mind and a Great Guy (in One!)

Creative Ops is a podcast for creative people, by creative people. We get to know the creator, their process, and talk about the stuff they make. Artists, musicians, professionals, parents, medical pros, etc...

Hey Folks!

I interviewed Mike “Auggie” Augustine on the lasest episode (#18) of Creative Ops (A Podcast for Creative People, by Creative People). Download it here.

Ep. 82 | Everywhere BUT Bookstores Tour (9/27/22): Pharmhouse Wellness Artists’ Market Creative Ops

I'm on my Everywhere BUT Bookstores Tour promoting my novel, Switchers, a scifi story that pits teens in 1996 against their adult selves in a winner-take-all time travel war. Pharmhouse Wellness is more to me than a few pit stops on the tour, they are a partner I've worked with to promote the book and to sell it in their lobby. I'm grateful for the opportunities they've provided me, as well as many other creatives in the Grand Rapids area. This episode is comprised of 6 interviews: 1) Casey and Megan Kornoelje – owners/founders of Pharmhouse Wellness 2) Dennis the frisbee guy – Founder of Wino-O Frisbee in Grand Rapids (Facebook Group)  3) Darcy Weiss aka Doodle Mittens – artist/vendor (www.doodlemittens.com) 4) Chadwick Belbeck – artist/art market attendee/personal friend (IG: @cwick_b) 5) "Uncle" Mary Brandt & (Aunt) Tay Martinez – artists/vendors/adorable married couple (IG: @maryfragdalene & @taymartiart) 6) Abdul – owner of  CHAR, the caterers of the event (www.char-gr.com) . . . http://www.christophertallon.com for all things show/host related. Love ya. Mwah! . . . Please have a listen to The Reluctant Book Marketer if you're into any part of the publishing process. It's a fascinating podcast.

Auggie is a brilliant mind and great guy. In 2016, Auggie placed 5th world-wide in the Dyson Rethinkers Challenge. Then in 2018, Auggie won the Red Bull Mind Gamers Quantum Challenge. In 2019, his team placed 10th in the Red Bull Mind Gamers Escape Room World Championship. He’s designed multiple rooms, including one in a hotel at the world championship for the competitors to play, that the hotel didn’t even know about, haha! He also had a hand in the SYGNYL podcast that I talked about on Ep.17!

 Check him out on social media @okapikid, and get in touch with him. He also has a website with a game built into it…www.okapikid.com.
