Brandon Filler – Executive Editor
Brandon is the black sheep of the lvl30.com editors being born out west in San Diego. He is often referred to as a Yankee by his southern rivals. He owns and operates a computer repair business and is a recording engineer in his down time. As a result of his diverse skillset, he always welcomes new learning experiences. There is no preference to the types of games he likes to play, although if he did have to lean in a certain direction, it would be towards RPG’s.

Darth (Daisy) Filler – Contributing Editor
Daisy Filler hails from the rolling hills of Tennessee where she has spent many a summer gaming during her youth. Currently, she raises three young children (four if you count her husband) while teaching English to over-enthused adolescents. In her spare time, or what is left of it, she still enjoys a game here and there. Because she frequently instructs the fine elements of plot, she critiques most strongly a game’s story line.

Denis Hirschhorn – Contributing Editor
Denis lives in northern Massachusetts. Most familiar with MMORPG’s, he has been playing games in that genre for over a decade. When not playing MMROPG’s or engaging in other activities, he occasionally will fire up the PS3 and play games on that platform. As an aspiring martial artist he has an appreciation for action and strategy games and has probably spent way too much time trying to perfect the way he runs missions while playing them.

Mark Rabenhorst – Contributing Editor
Mark known as “Kivak” by most, is from the hot state of Maryland. Though he graduated with a degree in Environmental Science and Ecology, he is a computer programmer by trade. From the young age of 6, he had already become a “gamer”, with an unending interest in Real Time Strategy games from Warcraft and Age of Empires, to the modern Dawn of War and Sins of a Solar Empire series. More recently, he has branched out into MMORPGs, FPSs, and just about any other game he can find. His favorite platforms include: PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and yes even his iPad. With hundreds of games bought and played, the only real question is: what game is he buying tomorrow?
