Helaina Cappel is an elementary school teacher, a game designer, and a publisher with a number of successful titles under her belt.

Helaina, along with her husband Josh, co-founded Burnt Island Games, which focuses on mid-weight games such as Endeavor: Age of Sail, Endeavor: Age of Expansion, and In the Hall of the Mountain King. Helaina lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
