I’m the Studio Director for Graphite Lab a development studio located in sunny St. Louis, MO, USA. I've been happily developing video games since 2004; releasing games on many platforms including the GameBoy Advance, Nintendo DS, Wii, XBOX 360, iPhone, iPad, Android, Facebook and PC. Many of these games are based on brands that millions of people enjoy each day, coming from Disney, Konami, Cartoon Network, Activision, PopCap, Universal Studios, Nickelodeon, Mattel, Hasbro, and many more. Our team is developing its first original game Hive Jump which will be available on Steam and Wii U in 2017.

Iíve been a part of creating over 70 video games now (dating back to the Game Boy Advance) and Iíve learned many different methods of funding development along the way. Here's how we funded Hive Jump over 3 long years.
