Eggplante is very lucky to be run by some very talented people. Everyone contributes in their own way, and we’re thankful for all of them.
Christopher Kalanderopoulos founded Eggplante in 2009 as a blog that was designed to just disappear after a few musings about the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles that year. Little did he know that it would make him a full-fledged writer, covering the gaming industry, eventually leading to film and television coverage, as well as bringing on a half dozen contributors. As Editor-in-Chief, Christopher oversees content creation but leaves the creative reign to the other editors, valuing their insight and opinion on the pieces they want to write.
Chad Goodmurphy united two of his passions, writing and gaming, into what was a small blog. After sharing his blog and writing on a forum, what started as a hobby full of reviews based on rentals and purchases evolved into a job writing reviews for established online publications. This gig, for the website Video Game Talk, was his first taste of professional gaming journalism, and eventually led to him becoming the Managing Editor of We Got This Covered for several years. Chad now writes at Eggplante, where he’s responsible for providing its gaming section with plenty of varied content, thoughtful opinion, and insightful reviews.
Brent Botsford has reviewed video games and movies for the better part of a decade. His early love affair with Nintendo shaped his mind into a knowledge base of anything to do with his two preferred forms of media. Diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome at an early age, he squashes preconceptions of both ASD and nerdiness by being a ladies’ man, which he muses about in his comedic column The Brent Playbook. He is also a long-time contributor to Eggplante!
John Kalanderopoulos graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in Chemical Engineering. He has always had a passion for great storytelling, whether in video games, movies or television. He is an integral part of Eggplante and excels at providing gaming and entertainment reviews, as well as the second opinions that people want from their favourite purple vegetable!
