The Squad

At MoviesMatrix.com, this is truly a place where the sum is greater than our parts. No blog, podcast, graphic arts, or social media platform is complete without a dynamic team behind them.

There are people who make this thing move. The minds behind the editorials. The thoughts behind the graphics. The voices behind the podcasts. The ideas behind the social. This is the team plugged into the MoviesMatrix.

Are you?

Do you miss reading content that cites credible sources instead of mysterious ones, provides balanced reporting, and sheds some thought-provoking editorials? More than a dozen signature columns — all dedicated to entertainment and the geckaphile! 

About the Squad

  • Speaks fluent moviequotes-ese
  • Believes the word “dope” is usually reserved for a great movie score, binging a TV series in one night, excellent movie casting, or release dates of something on Spotify
  • Suited ideally for political science or engineering, but feeling more at home at film school, doing creative design and marketing, and hosting a random podcast
  • Thinks owning “a piece of history” could mean a hallowed item of sports or music memorabilia, but for this gang, usually is a replica lightsaber or some elven magic book
  • Understands that underneath the wrinkled superhero shirts, skinny jeans, and Vans lies the mind and body of ‘America’s Next Top Model’
  • Stress that we have not lost our mind…they are backed up on some USB drive somewhere
  • Recommended by four out of five people that recommend things
  • And has a connection to Albert Einstein but that is only the firm understanding that e=mc2 is probably some cheat code for an RPG game

Now that you have heard about them, take some time to get to know the Geckaphiles of the MoviesMatrix!

Todd

The Grand Poobah | Creative Director, Founder

He’s a part-time dream alchemist and future stockholder in Funko Pops! Aside from that, he was a little bored with his IRL gig, so he decided there needed to be more attention paid to movies, TV shows, and other nerd stuff. Fast forward a few months, and we have what brings us here today. Oh, you like the art around here? That’s him too. #Skillz

Shawn

Chief Concept Exorcist | Editor-in-Chief, Writer

The guy is a word nerd of the highest order, but he didn’t have a home for his geeky voice. One day, he sent a DM to the man upstairs (no, not that guy…just Todd) and the two built this MoviesMatrix.com we enjoy today. His dexterity pumps out our news and several columns, so stay tuned. One last thing: He’s also Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” in 2006. Seriously.

Chad

Maestro of Mayhem | Social Media, Columnist

No, that’s not him…he only wishes it were. If a guy can’t be named, bill collectors can’t call. He finds comfort as our Fancaster-in-Chief. Seriously, Hollywood…pay attention here! If you like our polls, tweets, or delightful rancor on Twitter, it was this guy. And the bigger the Matrix gets, the more work he has, so be kind.

Owen

Warlord of Ingenuity | Film Critic, Columnist

The Dude definitely abides here and one of our leads behind @eGamingMatrix. And, if he could swing it, he’d be just as agile as a certain wall-crawling superhero. We dare you to DM the guy and spell Peter Parker’s alter-ego incorrectly. Owen believes if you don’t hyphenate Spider-Man, you’re a flawed soul.

Michael

The Premiere Pontificate | Film Critic, Columnist

In case you didn’t notice, the guy has a mean hankering for gore, blood, guts, and screechy cheerleaders who are about to impaled. He critiques all kind of film, but horror is his jam. That’s our cute little dark soul trying to be a fruit loop in a world full of Cheerios.

Lo

Software Scribe Shock Jock | Podcaster, Writer

Yeah, that’s him. And it’s not an insult either. Bay area-proud. And punk music is this guy’s thing. Like, he has done it in a band. He also helps lead Down the Rabbit Hole,” the MoviesMatrix podcast! He’s talented, bougie, and smells a lot like brownies. Hey, it’s San Francisco. Things happen.

Sonny

Connoisseur of Critique | Critic, Writer

This is our mate from across the pond. He’s from Wales — it’s like England, only more sheep. When he’s not having a pint on his Corn Flakes, this gamer and foodie is treating us to his splendid opinions on film and TV here, and gaming over at @eGamingMatrix. (He just uses the letter ‘U’ in more places. Much more!)

Deibs

Ambassador of Buzz | Podcaster, Writer

This may come as a shock, but the guy is all about Philadelphia sports. And the random nerd column he writes for us. You may have seen his #DadBod on our own “Down the Rabbit Hole” podcast or his own thing “The Painted Lines.” (Yeah, more of that Philly sports scene. He’s an addict. What can we say?)

Manda

Superintendent of Schmooze | Podcaster, Critic

If the Canadian girl had one more spare minute in her day, she’d probably create another blog. She’s already a podcaster and editor for her own thing at CandidXCinema.com but it seems she needed a challenge, so she started doing it for us too. And we couldn’t be happier.

Ryan

Syndicated Vibe Sherpa | Podcaster, Writer

The man goes by the code name “Batnipples.” If that doesn’t tell you all you need to know about our captain of podcasting, not sure what will. He’s dope behind a mic. You should check out “Down the Rabbit Hole.” Maybe he has a thing for George Clooney. I mean, who can blame him, right?
