>  programming experience, Justin spearheaded the launch of his
>  company's first game of several games contracted with publisher
>  Hands-On Mobile.  On the horizon for Justin and Metamoorephosis is
>  the development of an In-Game Ad Platform that will re-write the
>  rules of advertiser-gamer interactions.
