WHO WE ARE

Founder/EIC: Ken “Melf” Horowitz [ken@sega-16.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 [ssponsel@sega-16.com]

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: Alex “The Sports Guy” Burr [aburr@sega-16.com]

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 [scampbell@sega-16.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.
