Meet the Team

Daniel New – Editor

Daniel is a marketing man and the founder of Thumbsticks. You’ll often find him lurking at events, drinking tepid tea from a cardboard cup, and bringing you important industry news and views. Back at base he drinks copious amounts of hot tea from a mug – which is, of course, preferable – and performs his best work with video game and movie soundtracks playing in the background as heroic inspiration.

Tom Baines – Editor

Tom is an itinerant freelance technology writer who found a home with Thumbsticks. He handles the majority of the commissioning and, as a result, can often be heard complaining about people going way over their word count. Tom especially loves coffee, role-playing games, and anything he can play co-operatively with his wife.
