Ariel Rubin & Juliana Patel are the creators of the Kickstarter sensation Escape Room In A Box: The Werewolf Experiment. They met at one of Juliana’s famous game nights. They quickly bonded over their lifelong love of games and puzzles and began exploring every escape room in the city.

Ariel and Juliana came up with the idea for Escape Room In A Box when they tried to host an Escape Room of their own. They couldn’t find one to buy, so they decided to make one. They designed the game over countless play dates and late nights and couldn’t be more proud of the final product.

Ariel and Juliana both majored in theater (at Vassar and Brown respectively) and channeled their creativity and love of the dramatic into jobs as writers in Hollywood.

Elan Lee is a professional technologist and storyteller. Elan founded several companies including 42 Entertainment and Fourth Wall Studios. He was the Chief Design Officer at Xbox Entertainment Studios, and most recently co-created “Exploding Kittens”, the most funded game on Kickstarter, and the most backed crowd funded project in history. Elan has won awards for Best Web Game of the Year, Best Advertising Campaign of the Year, Best Idea of the Year, the Indiecade Trailblazer award, an Emmy for Original Interactive Programming, and the Game Innovator of the Year award for Exploding Kittens.

B Cavello is an aspiring-polymath and activist. They work as the Product Development & Community Director for Exploding Kittens. Outside of Exploding Kittens, B has also consulted on a variety of crowdfunding projects including Zach and Zebby Wahls' "Woman Card[s]," Artiphon, the Lelo Hex condom, and more. They have their own projects as well. B's projects focus on social good and range from crisis housing materials to computer education and even an interactive circuitry book for kids coming soon to a crowdfunding platform near you!
