Been playing games since Top Gear on Super Nintendo but even before that with the original Game Boy that was gifted to me via family. However, those humble beginnings have led to me following my passions throughout life. Passionate sports fan turned sports editor has added more titles to my name ever since. I went from loving games and reviewing them personally to bringing myself to write more on the professional side and that marks my game writing career since 2017. Not really into the big ESport scene anymore due to a certain racing game failing to fix their penalty system.

About FanSided

The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
