Originally from Illinois, Todd is a recent transplant to the Palmer Divide in Colorado, where he's been learning to adapt to hunting jackrabbits with his Harris's hawk after flying red tails on squirrels and cottontails for years. Once part owner of a stable isotope lab, Todd also utilized the lab to analyze feathers of migrating, juvenile sharp-shinned hawks trapped at the Cedar Grove Ornithological Research Station as part of his thesis research at the University of Illinois. He continues to participate in raptor research when possible.

How to Raise $2 million on Kickstarter & find 50,000 fans. Crowfall’s J Todd Coleman & Gordon Walton
Crowd Scene | Crowdfunding Success Stories
Creative Director J Todd Colman and Exec Producer Gordon Walton are two of the most influential figures in the gaming industry. Venturing into the world of crowdfunding for the first time with their passion project, “Crowfall", they built a base of 50,000 fans before they even started their Kickstarter campaign, and more than doubled their fundraising goal to reach nearly $2 million in 30 days. On this episode of Crowd Scene they tell Mike and Pete exactly how they did it. Both Todd and Gordon are highly articulate, and very generous with their recommendations on what to do and what not to do in crowdfunding. They also share their 'Guest Picks', talk about how to keep a big, creative team moving in the same direction, and how, as crowdfunding evolves, it’s become necessary to be transparent with your backers and see them as collaborators. This episode is a lot of fun.
