Chandler Wood – Editor-in-Chief
Chandler has been playing video games for most of his life. His first real passion and appreciation for games, however, came with the PlayStation and Final Fantasy VII. Since that time he has become a dedicated PlayStation advocate and an avid PSN trophy hunter, with an impressive trophy count to back his gaming claims, and as of 2012, a member of the PSLS staff. More recently, Destiny has taken over, even overshadowing his love of trophies. Chandler has poured more than 3200 hours into the series since D1 first launched. “Chandy” has an amazing wife that fully supports his love of games, beer, coffee, and PlayStation LifeStyle.

Cameron Teague – Reviews
Cameron has been a gamer ever since he first got hooked on Gemfire for the SNES way back when. RPGs, specifically the Suikoden series, are his poison of choice when it comes to gaming, but he enjoys almost every genre out there. In the odd case that Cameron is not gaming (seriously, it rarely happens), he is a proud father of two and a huge fan of Kpop, Kdramas, and anime. Cameron has always been a fan of the PlayStation brand and has been working for PSLS since 2009.
Brianna Reeves – News Writer
While the SNES is responsible for Brianna’s first gaming memories, a borrowed PlayStation and Mortal Kombat 3 turned the hobby into a passion. This passion has influenced nearly every aspect of her life, even finding its way into her studies. A fondness for the various ways in which stories are told in games, mixed with her love of writing, inspired Brianna to pursue the Master’s Degree she’s recently earned in English Literature. When she’s not writing or gaming, Brianna is either reading comics or watching one of the two dozen television shows based on them.
Will Harrison – News Writer
Will’s been writing both online and in print about video games for almost a decade, which seems like an achievement itself. His work includes words for Polygon, The Escapist, Thrillist, Unwinnable, covering SXSW for the Austin American-Statesman, and his weekly gig as a columnist for the Pulitzer Prize-winning Toledo Blade in Toledo, Ohio. He lives in Central Ohio with his wife, The Rev. Rachel Harrison, and their three cats. Don’t ask him which Persona waifu is best girl.
Zarmena Khan – Weekend News Writer
Zarmena’s long-term relationship with video games began when she discovered her father’s collection of video games for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum at a time when gaming was “something only boys did.” Discouraged by a culture of non-acceptance, she went on to complete higher education and ended up with a Master of Science degree from the UK, specializing in international business. After living in two continents and having worked for various multinationals and the British government, she decided to take a leap of faith like Ezio Auditore and recently settled for freelancing in the games industry. She’s proud to be a part of PSLS.
Annette Polis – Social Media Manager
Annette’s been gaming since the 80s when she fell in love with Dark Chambers on the Atari 2600. Since then, she’s discovered a love for JRPGs, quirky indie games, and is addicted to both Fallout and Elder Scrolls franchises. She’s also addicted to Japanese culture, has an unhealthy obsession for Sailor Moon, and loves her Nendoroid collection as though they were all real boys and girls.
