WHO IS POCKETGAMER.BIZ?
Ric Cowley | Editor
Ric is the Editor of PocketGamer.biz, having started out as a Staff Writer on the site back in 2015. He received an honourable mention in both the MCV and Develop 30 Under 30 lists in 2016 and refuses to let anyone forget about it.
Jon Jordan | Contributing Editor
Jon remembers the heady days of 'surfing the BT Cellnet' (ahem), and text-based WAP mobile gaming with a certain degree of nostalgia. Everything's moved on plenty since then, of course. Not least Jon, who now boasts several million colours, a touchscreen and up to 8GB of inbuilt memory. It's not done much for his battery life, though. As well as being PocketGamer.biz's Contributing Editor, Jon is one of Pocket Gamer's co-founders.
Matthew Forde | Staff Writer
Matthew Forde is the staff writer for PocketGamer.biz and also a member of the Pocket Gamer Podcast. You can find him on Twitter @Forde999 talking about Smash Bros. and everything pop culture related - particularly superheroes.
Kayleigh Partleton | Staff Writer
Kayleigh is a freelance writer based in Berkshire. Besides PocketGamer.biz and PCGames Insider she has written as a guides writer, specialising in RPG's and horror.
Chris James| Managing Director
If you haven't come across the founder and MD of Steel Media, then Chris really hasn't been doing his job very well. A regular on the conference circuit, he has spoken at MGF, MEM, and chaired Develop Mobile, as well as served on the judging panels of every award – from the Mobile Choice and Motorola MotoDev to the IMGAs and Meffys. If he hasn't pitched an idea to you yet, then either you're about to receive a call or you're doing something wrong!
In addition to the names above, we'll be calling on a team of respected analysts and writers to ensure our coverage is as deep and wide-ranging as possible.
