Last month Chris Pranger stepped down as editor here at TMA. This left a big hole not only in the editor position but in a writing capacity as well. Few can make up for the lost fanboy expertise or the love of anime Chris brought to the game, but I am going to attempt to fill his editor shoes, which is also no easy task.
I was asked to replace Chris as editor of TMA and I happily accepted the challenge. This doesn’t mean there will be any drastic changes to the site in the short term, but I’m going to do my best to steer TMA to bigger and better things. As for the immediate future, TMA will remain a two-man operation with myself and Gus posting as much as we can each week. With any luck, business will pick up and we can expand and grow our team back up to where it belongs and deserves.
However, this isn’t my first rodeo. I’ve been writing, building and managing web sites for the better part of 15 years. It started back in high school and that led me to a career of web development with a healthy side of blogging. Writing is a real joy for me, especially when I get to write about the things I love, namely toys and games. I’m an 80s kid that saw the evolution of home video games, the death of the arcades and remembers when Satuday mornings were sacred. When I’m not playing video games or tending to my baby daughter, I’m racing Hot Wheels over at Redline Derby Racing.

Believe me when I say it’s a privilege to be a writer here at TMA, let alone being the new editor. Even though we’re down a man, I promise we’ll do our best to keep TMA moving down the right path and keep churning out some of the best articles on toys, games and all things fun.
