WHO WE ARE
Founder/EIC: Ken “Melf” Horowitz [email@example.com]
Ken is the man who started Sega-16 way back in 2004. He is a full-time English professor and has been writing about video games for well over a decade. His work can be found in numerous video game publications (GamesTM, Houston’s HAL-PC Magazine, Hardcore Gamer Magazine) and several enthusiast websites (GotNext, The Next Level). He has also published articles in his chosen field of linguistics and ESL (English as a Second Language).
As the founder of Sega-16, much of Ken’s free time is spent working on reviews and articles for public consumption. His love of games isn’t confined only to Sega’s 16-bit consoles, and he enjoys an extensive collection of Playstation and Saturn games. It is most likely, however, that this has more to do with his being a pack rat than a fondness for any particular console.
Editor: Sebastian “Phantar” Sponsel [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Sebastian, aka “The Dancing German,” originally hails from the Bavarian city of Regensburg, and is working in PR and occasionally as a freelance journalist in Germany. After being exposed to the world of video gaming at the age of six by the means of C64 and Intellivision, he had a special interest in computers and video games from early on. During a four-month stay in South America he became particularly fascinated with the Genesis’ hacks and homebrews scene.
Editor: Christian “Baloo” Matozzo [email@example.com]
Christian has been playing the SEGA Genesis from the tender age of three years-old, maybe even younger than that. He started playing video games before he learned to read. He loves to talk and debate about video games and is an avid writer and collector. He hopes that he will be able to prove to the Internet who was the real winner in the 16-bit wars, the SEGA Genesis!
Editor: Alex “The Sports Guy” Burr [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Alex resides in Muskegon, Michigan – forty-five seconds from Lake Michigan, but spends most of his year in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan attending Central Michigan University as a Music Education major. He plays the trombone and will one day within the next thirty years be teaching kids in band somewhere. He has owned the Genesis ever since his seventh birthday and has never lost touch with it. He loves most sports games for the Genesis and will never back down from a challenge in Tecmo Super Bowl, Bill Walsh College Football or any Genesis game for that matter.
Editor: Steven “shinobimusashi” Campbell [email@example.com]
Steven resides in Daingerfield, TX, but grew up in the Houston area. Stevens primary gaming system since 1993 has been the Sega Genesis, and his favorite video game of all time is Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master. He is a die hard NFL football fan and a student of NFL history, as well as a full-time, third generation carpenter. Steven also enjoys, teaches, and competes in the sports of boxing, and MMA, and he covers his local high school football team for the Daingerfield newspaper in the fall.
Editor: Tom “InternalPrimate” Briggs [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Tom resides in sunny San Diego, California – where he can actually get away with saying that he enjoys long walks on the beach. When he isn’t in school or working he likes to spend his free time reading, writing, watching movies, playing golf, and being with his friends and family. He would like to have a successful career in writing and hopes to prove to the world why the 16-bit generation was the greatest of all.
Editor: Joel “Phosis” Peterson [email@example.com]
Joel lives in Calgary, Alberta; the home of beef and unecessary bull riding. Though he collects games for a wide variety of consoles, his primary collection is for the Sega Genesis, where most of his favorite games reside. He lives with his wife, two cats, and as of the time of this writing, with a small human sharing his genetic code due in just a few months. He has many interests, many of which require him to shy away from the outside world, and park himself in front of a computer screen. He is aspiring to write for a living, or to win the lottery; whichever comes first.
