Lara Jackson: Trending News Executive

Lara Jackson

Who am I? I used to be so terrified of Super Mario 64 that I’d refuse to go into Peach’s castle and would just swim round and round the moat. However, things have definitely changed as horror is now my favourite genre, with my favourite horror game being Silent Hill 2.

What do I do at Gamebyte? I’m a Trending News Executive, which is fancy-talk for Gaming Journalist. As part of the Editorial team, I write articles and reviews.

Currently loving... The Witcher III, God of War and Doki Doki Literature Club.

Tom Sweeney: Director of Gaming

Tom Sweeney

Who am I? A total nerd with 100% completion of The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, thousands of hours logged in RuneScape, and an ongoing love affair with Civ 5. I climbed the ladder at Jagex (the makers of RuneScape), becoming their Head of Community Management before landing a job leading the GameByte team!

What do I do at Gamebyte? I’m the Director of Gaming/Brand Director at GameByte’s parent company, which means I look GameByte as a business unit which involves keeping an eye on the numbers and supporting the team in bringing the brand to life.

Currently loving... Call of Duty: WWII, Jurassic World: Evolution, and I have an unhealthy obsession with Helix Jump on my phone.

Who am I? Gaming has always been my biggest passion, and I built up an online presence by founding several meme accounts. From that, I was employed by GameByte. I am a PlayStation fan and that is the console I currently game on most.

What do I do at Gamebyte? I am the Editor in Chief - GameByte Global.

Currently loving... Fortnite, Assassin's Creed Origins and soon to be NBA 2k19.
