MOONLIT TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS

Knock knock... who's there?

While I've considered turning Moonlit into something bigger, it remains me, David McGraw! I began this journey moonlighting while working for Disney in northern California. I found myself laid off in 2010 and headed back to Kansas due to a shift in corporate strategy. I've been working remotely since! I'm entrepreneurial by nature and love helping founders build new consumer products.

Native Swift Development

Building delightful user experiences is what I love to do. The usage of fluid transitions, interactive gestures, and subtle animations make apps fun. Fun apps are going to win the day. There's little room for overhead to achieve this level of excellence. The experience I've built around Apple's ecosystem allow me to iterate quickly while providing deeper insight into what customers expect.

Unreal Engine Development

In 2005 I entered the indie scene by helping a small studio working on a role-playing game, Morning's Wrath. Shortly after, I started building my own games on iOS using Cocos2D. Today I invest my time into mastering Unreal Engine and providing contract services under Frosted Citadel Entertainment.

The Budget

Engineering budgets can be tricky if needs are too ambiguous. I will do what I can, including bi-weekly updates, to make sure we stay focused on needs, not vague time-fillers. These days, clients have raised a seed round, at least. And, on average, we spend 6 or more months together to launch a few versions or to build prototypes.

Veteran Owned

Before jumping into the world of startups, I served as Sergeant of U.S. Marines. This time taught me a lot about leadership, adaptability, and being agile. During my tour, including 2003 Operation Iraqi Freedom, I spent time in security, supply, food service, and training elements. Marines are known for precise execution, within small team elements, that allow us to move fast. That experience happens to serve this environment well.

Startups

Hard-earned experience, from years of launching products, provides a wealth of knowledge to assist you in your journey. Take a look through some of the work delivered over the years.
