Stephen Jackson

Stephen Jackson – Founder & Editor-in-Chief

I am Gaming Respawn’s Founder/Editor-in-Chief and take care of the day-to-day running of the site. You’re most likely to see me chilling in the news section where I happen to spend most of my time covering the latest news.

Ian Cooper – Reviews Editor

I’ve been a huge gamer since the late 1980s. My first console was the ZX Spectrum, but I preferred my Amstrad CPC464, both cool machines. Oh, what a time we come from. I provide reviews on games and gaming-related gadgets and accessories for Gaming Respawn, of which I promise to be 100% honest and unbiased. You’ll find me pumping iron, listening to metal, drinking coffee or watching cat videos.

Will Worrall – Media & Technical Editor

I’m in charge of making sure stuff works behind the scenes in many cases (don’t confuse me for the webmaster. I can’t stand HTML) as well as controlling or media output in the form of podcasts and videos. When I’m not doing that I occasionally find the time to actually post reviews or features to the site.

Daniel Garcia-Montes – Group Features Editor

I’m a reviewer/writer and subeditor for Gaming Respawn. Video games are my life and my passion, though I also enjoy watching movies and anime, reading comics and fantasy novels, and collecting an embarrassing number of action figures related to my other previously mentioned hobbies. Human interaction and sunlight are overrated.

Jes Taylor – Associate Editor

I’m a Writer and Editor for Gaming Respawn. Thanks to the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis, video games became my life and passion. You’ll find me on Gaming Respawn writing news, reviews, features, and occasionally just my general video game thoughts. Sit down, relax, and I’ll explain why Mass Effect 2 is the greatest video game ever made.

Dom Richards – Associate Editor

You will find me reviewing games for the site and, when time permits, writing the occasional opinion piece. I have been an avid gamer for as long as I can remember. I mainly enjoy story-driven games with horror or stealth-focused gameplay. I also thoroughly enjoy RPGs, shooters, and, well, practically anything! May the Force be with you.

Michael Fitzgerald – Staff Writer

British, Evertonian, grapple fan and passionate about them there video games. Bit of a golden oldy these days, weighing in at a pert 30-something years of age. I’ll be providing reviews, retro features, the odd rant, and the occasional article on pro wrestling. I also like a nice pint of Porter now and then.

Anthony Pamias – Staff Writer

Hello, I’m a reviewer/writer for Gaming Respawn. I’m a graphic designer, artist, video developer, and someone who enjoys video games, anime, and movies. It’s a pleasure working with the Gaming Respawn team.

Luke Geikie – Staff Writer

I am a reviewer/writer on the Gaming Respawn team. Ever since I was a kid I’ve been passionate about video games and writing. I have a love for JRPGs and have grown up on games like Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts. That being said I enjoy many different genres and you’ll find me reviewing all sorts of games when I’m not getting distracted by FFXIV all day and night!

Mick Smith – Staff Writer

A fighting game fan turned writer who’s just doing it for the Community. I mainly write about fighting games and the fighting game community here at Gaming Respawn, but I also enjoy arcade classics, beat ‘em ups, racing games, and the occasional JRPG. When I’m not writing for the site I’m usually mashing out combos or trying to perfect that one ridiculous combo I saw on Twitter.

Tasha Quinn – Staff Writer

You can probably tell by the fact that I’m writing here, but I love video games. I mainly write reviews for Gaming Respawn but write a news piece here and there too. I like just about every genre of video games but my favorite is probably fantasy RPGs. Kingdom Hearts and Mass Effect are my all-time favorite series.

Mark Tait – Staff Writer

I’m a writer/reviewer for Gaming Respawn, having run my own website Something new reviews for the past 3 years. I love video games and technology, and spend my spare time, either writing about them or testing them. Own a PS5 and XBSX and you can find me playing RPG, FPS, or driving games.
