about us

DAViD MCGRANAGHAN

Co-founder/Director

Originally from Largs, Scotland, David
studied musical theatre at the Dance School of Scotland and Guildford School of Acting. After graduating, David landed a supporting role in a West End play, saw his payslip and thought, ‘I need to start a business.’

Spotting a gap in the market for board games that could really, actually make you laugh, David created Game For Fame, which went on to become Amazon.co.uk‘s #1 selling board game - four Christmas’ in a row!

During this time, David enjoyed a varied acting career which included playing one of the Jersey Boys on London’s West End, landing lead roles at The Royal Shakespeare Company, and going viral with his sketch series Dave McG TV.

However, it was David’s entrepreneurial spirit and love for all things creative that lead him to focus on McMiLLER full-time with business/real-life partner Julian.

JULiAN MiLLER

Co-founder/Director

Originally from Castricum, The Netherlands, Julian moved to London to study musical theatre at the Royal Academy of Music. Having starred opposite Melissa McCarthy in the movie SPY, as well as Will Ferrell in the Netflix comedy EUROVISION, Julian enjoyed a successful comedy acting career.

However, after being set up on a blind date with David, they discovered their love for working, living, and creating together, and McMiLLER was born.

However, after being set up on a blind date with David, they discovered their love for working, living, and creating together, and McMiLLER was born.

Together, Julian and David have enjoyed the success of best-selling, award-winning titles such as Santa VS Jesus, It’s Bananas, UpRoar and Fire In The Hole, and feel like they are just getting started.

What's Next?

Growing more and more concerned about the amount of plastic in our environment (nevermind the ‘greenwashing’ in the toy and game industry), Julian and David are now committed to only developing 100% plastic-free products moving forward.

They, along with the McMiLLER team, are excited to put their joint creativity not only into their product design and gameplay, but also into their material choices.

dream team

ADRiEN LOGSDON

The Multi-tasking monster

Adrien wears many hats at McMiLLER: product development support, copywriting and marketing with David, and doing research deep-dives on our journey to becoming one of the most eco-friendly toy and game companies in the world.

Adrien grew up in small-town Iowa, USA, before moving to England by way of Los Angeles. While attending Guildford School of Acting Conservatoire, she met David - who was already dreaming up ideas for board games in his spare time!

After spending her twenties and thirties singing and traveling, she is now settled in Saint Paul, MN with her two kids - who obviously double as board game idea sounding boards.

KATE BLADON

The support monster

Kate who originally hails from the Philippines holds a Bachelors Degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management, but chose to work freelance in 2015 which enabled her to live the digital nomad life. She moved to the UK with her husband in 2018, met David and Julian in September 2020 and has been their support monster since.

In her past time, Kate loves to come up with projects that has to do with home improvements, decorating and she DIY's whatever she could think of under the sun.

Kate is an admin and customer service geek. Whatever it is you need help with admin-wise, or if you are a customer who's in need of assistance with your order, Kate is the answer to your problems.
