Jan has been playing video games for nearly 30 years and been a passionate geek for the better part of his life. He's grown to become rather cranky, however, and tends to point out the things that annoy him in games more than the things he loves.

Sam Chandler

Sam Chandler

Role:

Managing Editor

Email:

sam.chandler@guidestash.com

Bio:

Sam Chandler is the Australian portion of Guide Stash, bringing the southern hemisphere back into the conversation. He has a love for 90's retro gaming, with a specific fondness for the Nintendo 64, but he’s also got a masochistic bone for all things Soulsborne. Sam’s background includes a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a major in scriptwriting and a minor in creative writing, which he put to use helping small businesses grow their audience. Since then, he’s focused on his passion for gaming, turning it from a hobby into a career. Though he loves nothing more than to help gamers through detailed guide creation, he’s not one to shy away from having a deep dive on gaming ideologies. If you ever need help with a game or just want to say g’day, you can find him on his Twitter account or through his email address.

Tony Mino

Role:

Editor

Email:

tony.mino@guidestash.com

Bio:

Tony has been an avid gamer since his parents bought him and his brothers their first video game console, an NES in the early 1990s. After this first experience of playing Super Mario Bros. and having to blow into cartridges to get them to work, Tony has been solidly hooked ever since. He enjoys a healthy variety of game genres and platforms but he sure loves his racing games.
