Hi my name is Justin. J Money is a nickname I've had for years. I am the Assistant Editor for PureNintendo.com and writer for Pure Nintendo Magazine. I love racing/driving games; my favorite games in the racing genre come from the Need For Speed franchise. I also have, what some would probably call, an unhealthy obsession with zombies.

Katelyn Sharp - PNM Designer / Layout Editor

My love of video games started with the Nintendo GameCube. My favorite franchises are The Legend of Zelda and the Professor Layton series. I'm currently in the process of conquering every Zelda game in the series but my true, geeky loves are Star Trek and DC Comics. NNID: purely_katie

Eli Courey - Editor

Steve Jobs and Shigeru Miyamoto came to me in a vision when I was a young child and showed me the light. Apple and Nintendo are my life now, and my life is awesome! Besides being a Pure Nintendo editor, I also run the Apple news blog MacDaddyNews.com. My favorite franchise is Zelda, and Link's Awakening is my favorite game in the series. I can destroy anyone in NBA Jam for the SNES....blindfolded. Okay, maybe not blindfolded, but I'm up for the challenge. NNID: purely_eli

Alex Schramke - Writer

Alex fell in love with gaming by the time he was old enough to pick up a controller. Growing up with a steady diet of NES, SNES, and Atari 2600 games, Alex quickly became a fan of all things Nintendo. He began amassing a gaming collection, (Including boxed and complete versions of every Legend of Zelda title made) over the years. After graduating from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a Bachelor's degree in Game Design, he found Pure Nintendo by chance, and began helping out in June 2012. He has been writing articles and loving it ever since!

J Casalino - Writer | Technology

Based in Salt Lake City, I'm an IT Director by day and a Nintendo fan by night. I started with Super Mario Bros. on the original NES and have continued to love Nintendo through today's Wii U. My favorite franchises include just about anything Zelda, Metroid, or Super Mario Bros. While the Nintendo consoles are my favorite, they're not the only ones I have at home. I appreciate the innovation of other consoles and other gaming franchises such as Arkham Asylum/Arkham City and Assassin's Creed II series.

Tristan Meiman - Writer

Hi there! Nintendo was the company that introduced me to the gaming world and will always be my personal favorite. My favorite franchise is The Legend of Zelda and my favorite game would have to be Super Mario RPG: Legend of The Seven Stars. I graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with a major in Journalism. Video Games are both a hobby and a passion to me, as I feel they are another medium of story telling.

Kaelyn Daugherty - Fan Art Curator

Hello! My name is Kaelyn, and I LOVE Nintendo! I can't remember a time when I didn't play video games. Growing up with 3 older brothers it was hard to avoid them. Nintendo was always something that put me in a good mood, or taken me away when I needed a break from reality. My favorite series is the Legend of Zelda! I've always been into drawing Nintendo characters and seeing other people's video game themed art. I have a dream of one day meeting the great Shigeru Miyamoto, and one day working for Nintendo (Don't we all).

Trevor Gould - Writer

Even though I was first introduced to video games with the Atari 2600 (I feel old) it was Nintendo that turned me into a lifelong fan. From the magical NES era when Nintendo was the face of gaming, through today with the 3DS, Wii U (and everything in between) Nintendo’s always entertained me with their innovative, and just plain fun games! Writing for Pure Nintendo has allowed me to combine a fondness for journalism with my love of gaming. I’ve especially enjoyed building working relationships with smaller and independent developers and studios.

Thomas Jones - Writer/Designer

What up y'aaall! When I'm not writing articles for Pure Nintendo, I'm a Graphic Designer and Illustrator who loves to create video game artwork. I hail from England but am currently fighting trolls and searching for dragon gold in Middle Earth, New Zealand. My favourite franchise is The Legend of Zelda but I'm also a huge Pokémon, Final Fantasy, Resident Evil and Metal Gear Solid fan but play just about anything. I also like to collect Nintendo consoles, games and trinkets.
