A few creators I have helped recently.

Doomsday Robots

Daniel has been involved with the Kickstarter scene long enough to know what has worked and what has flopped. We did a lot of research and planning to put our best foot forward for the Bridges to Nowhere campaign. There were plenty of times, though, where no amount of planning could help us and that’s where Daniel was a godsend. His experience helped us make important decisions, and his professional perspective gave us confidence. Finally, it takes time and access to make connections in the board game industry. We had very few contacts, and Daniel was able to advocate for our game to the right people and got our campaign more attention than we could have on our own. From start to finish, it was a real pleasure working with Daniel, and we could not recommend him more highly.
