    Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

    First world problems, Steve. First world problems.

    Nick originally met the GN team while he worked PR for Antec's booth at PAX East. After a brief introduction and several back-and-forth tweets between companies, Nick eventually left Antec and was scooped-up shortly thereafter for editorial work at GN. On the hardware side, Nick's unique industry PR experience gives him an edge for cases, cooling, & PSU coverage; on the gaming side, his writing and analytical skills make for GN's go-to games coverage specialist.

    Nick is our Secret Weapon (^TM) for conventions, where he often pounds out multiple 2000-word articles per day. His other night job sees him running South Bay Button Mashers, an all-inclusive gaming club for residents of the San Jose & Mountain View area of California.

    Michael Kerns first found us when Steve was tirelessly answering questions on reddit pertaining to a new product launch, likely after the Editor had stayed up all night writing the news post. Michael offered a tired Editor reprieve, taking over the role of questions-answerer-extraordinaire when it was most needed. These days, Michael can be found pulling his mechanical keyboard collection apart and building Frankenstein's Monster-like monsters of keyboards. Michael wrote the vast majority of our mechanical keyboard dictionary (say, check this out: Cherry MX Switches) and is an expert in keyboards.
