About our Team


A Gaming site for ALL GAMERS


I personally started out with a few games peaking my interest on the Atari, but the Nintendo NES is what officially sparked my passion for gaming.  This came from playing Super Mario Bros., Zelda, Metroid, Karnov, Contra, Castlevania, TMNT, and the countless other classic titles on this iconic system.

Pixelated Gamer is a site for all video game enthusiasts, whether you are a retro old school gamer, or new to the gaming scene.  You will find original, informative and exciting gaming content, articles, reviews and videos that span across all gaming generations.  Our passion is gaming and the industry has never been stronger or more engaging.

For proof, look at the game lineups from Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo. Capcom, Ubisoft, EA, Rockstar, Naughty Dog, From Software, Activision, Bungie and Insomniac.  The Indie developer scene has never been more fully featured and robust either, delivering incredible experiences that showcase phenomenal storytelling.  Along the way, we will be covering it all.  This includes key retro titles that innovated the gaming industry, to the latest next generation consoles and hardware.

Every business has a beginning.  We first started out known as BootHammer Video Game Reviews.  Under this brand, we grew from a modest blog to thousands of articles, videos, reviews and opinion pieces.  In return, we were blessed with thousands of readers, subscribers and fans.  Think of Pixelated Gamer as BootHammer 2.0. We’ll be delivering the same unique and original gaming content that established our place online as a reputable reviewer, covering modern and retro video game software and hardware.

Avid gamer who enjoys the older nostalgic titles as much as the latest AAA releases. Remakes from the classic 8 and 16-bit era will always entice me and I love experiencing new IP’s across each and every gaming platform. I’ve grown more and more fond of the Indie scene that has seen incredibly growth lately and it’s great to see these smaller teams getting the spotlight for all their hard work and passion for creating fantastic games. I was lucky enough to start out on the iconic NES system, making the 8 and 16-bit era one of my favorites.  Since this rebirth of the industry, I have witnessed the evolution of gaming and its incredible growth in overall popularity as an entertainment medium juggernaut. With a staggering amount of choices from the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 Pro, PSVR and Xbox One X, there simply hasn’t been a better time to be a gamer.

Full-time worker, part-timer gamer, devourer of podcasts, Superman savant and geek knowledge extraordinaire. Gaming since ‘88, platformers and fighting games are my first loves but shooters have held my focus since Goldeneye flashed across my bedroom TV. In an adult world with exceedingly less time for long, drawn out stories I’ve found solace on Xbox Live with quick matches before crashing at night. Forever working for the weekend and, similar to Thanos, I’m looking to balance life and my passion for gaming perfectly. So until I finish collecting the rest of the infinity stones, I’m going to squeeze out every minute I can wrecking fools on Halo at 11 PM.
