Alex Nassos

One of the loudest people in the room despite being the most soft spoken in his family. Alex started gaming on the Sega Genesis, and he hasn't stopped yet.  Video production has been a passion of his since childhood, and he has been the guy you wanted on your team for school video projects ever since. He cut his teeth in the gaming industry at the tender age of 15 when he took a job at a large gaming retailer, despite child labor laws, and over the years he has combined his hobby and passion to work on several programs covering everything from gaming to music, and one time, ponies.

Ryan Podolski

At the ripe, young age of 6, Ryan first felt the glory of an SNES controller in his hands… and his life has never been the same since.  Spending his childhood scouring rental stores and growing up mesmerized by “Gamecube water,” his interest in gaming and technology has been a flame that only burns brighter with time.  It is apparent upon meeting him that he is a man of refined taste and culture.  Outside of the gaming realm, he can be found exploring his passion with music: exploring all of its genres, following Phish, and strumming his guitar hoping one day to write something meaningful of his own.  Now, it is his turn to give back in an industry that has given him so much.  Driven and dedicated, Ryan is the blue shell in Mario Kart that despite your best efforts, you cannot avoid.

Christian Locke

Creative genius, dedicated marine, constant dreamer, passionate lover; Christian's dad may be white, but his heart is made of gold. He grew up playing games like Harvest Moon and Pokemon with his close friend, Ethan. Today, you'll struggle to find someone more invested in a game when he finds the time to pick up a controller. He enlisted Alex to help with a video project last minute one snowy day in 2010, and he's counted him in for every one since; in fact this very bio was written by that lovable hunk, Alex.
