The Minds Behind Family Matters:

David Schoenberger, Game Creator & Founder of Better Indeed LLC
David runs Better Indeed, the makers of Family Matters and moonlights as a marketing consultant. A former executive with stints at American Express, Lucent, and Warner Bros., David earned a BA at University of Vermont and an MBA at Stern/NYU. He is a Big Brother, a volunteer for Taproot Foundation, a patron of Children International and lives with his wife and two daughters (Rory and Sadie) in Brooklyn.

"I strive to be a cool dad yet know when the going gets tough ‘cool’ leaves the building. Our game gives players a platform to share of themselves while proactively dealing with real-life issues in a fun and innovative way."

Alisa Grodsky, Award-Winning Designer
Alisa is the Emmy-award winning owner of Favor-it which conceptualizes, produces and delivers customized-finished art for all types of promotions and events. For 20+ years, she has worked with companies such as Disney, Scholastic, and Sesame Street to create the look, illustrations and animations for Doug, Stanley PB & J, Maya and Miguel and Pinky Dinky Doo.  A Parsons graduate (and member of the Graphic Artists Guild, the AIGA and several women’s entrepreneurial organizations) Alisa lives in Staten Island with her husband and daughter.

"I whole-heartedly believe families need to get back to basics. While playing Family Matters™ I discovered several interesting tidbits about my family and learned to better see the world through my daughter’s eyes. This is a very fun yet meaningful game and I feel lucky to add it to my arsenal of parenting tools."

Alexandra “Alex” Lennon, Licensed Social Worker
Alex is a board-certified clinical social worker whose specialty is working with all school children from K-12.  Her expertise is helping children express their needs, cope with hardship, solve problems and relieve anxiety. Alex’s dedication to developing young people (and their families) is also a personal quest. This Summa Cum Laude graduate from University of New York - Albany (who also holds a MSW from SUNY-Stony Brook) is a believer in active parenting and practices what she preaches with her husband and their daughter.”

At last a game that is both provocative and informative. Family Mattersâ„¢ taps into real, relevant issues while fostering better communication among family members. A delightful mixture of the serious and the whimsical, it proactively addresses potential crises that life so often presents."

Howard Leifman, Ph D., Organizational Consultant
Dr. Leifman is a best-selling author and consultant specializing in executive coaching, retained executive search and out-placement. He works with several recruitment firms and runs a psychotherapy/coaching practice.

Howard is a member of the Conference Board, the Society of HR Management, National Association of Social Workers and sits on the board of several charitable organizations. 

"I jumped at the chance to help develop this game; there is a tremendous need for families to communicate better while having fun at the same time! More and more, the inability for families to understand each other spills over into the workplace too. Family Mattersâ„¢ promotes better communication."

Leonard Shostak, Business Consultant
An Eagle Scout and an entrepreneur, Leonard is a business/technology consultant. Currently, he runs Box of Rain which helps budding entrepreneurs turn ideas into reality and Kids Play Tunes, a live music experience program for public school children.

"I see many families struggle to communicate effectively. Our game lets families learn more about one another and enables them to tackle the tough stuff that all American families face today in a safe yet fun way.”
