Before high school, Phil Zoshak was a socially-awkward student with below-average reading skills taking remedial classes. Video games changed his life for the better. In college he got overly addicted to a game called World of Warcraft and threw away four years of his life. Too much of a good thing is a bad thing. Phil escaped and soon found his dream job. Now he is launching a program called Play 15 which will utilize the good points about gaming to teach reading, writing, and problem-solving to kids who are in the situation he was once in.
