Fueled by our deep passion for all things game-related, our mission is to create the most accurate gaming guides on the internet by actually playing the games and writing the guides as we go. All VGKAMI content is written and verified by expert gamers. If something can’t be verified, then it’s not posted.

Our Team of Expert Gamers and Writers

Our team of expert gamers also has a great deal of experience in writing about games.

Management Team

VGKAMI is wholly owned and run by its founders, Lowell Heddings and Marshall Gunnell.

Lowell Heddings

Co-founder

Lowell Heddings corporate headshotLowell Heddings is the co-founder of VGKAMI. He’s usually behind the scenes overseeing site development and direction, and making sure the general day-to-day operations are running smoothly.

VGKAMI isn’t Lowell’s first site to build, though. He’s also the founder and CEO of How-To Geek, where he’s been running the show since creating the site back in 2006. Over the last decade, Lowell has personally written more than 1000 articles, which have been viewed by over 250 million people. After the success of How-To Geek, Lowell went on to build a network of successful websites, including Review Geek, LifeSavvy, and CloudSavvyIT.

Before starting How-To Geek, Lowell spent 15 years working in the IT field doing consulting, cybersecurity, database management, and programming. The last decade of his previous career, however, was spent mainly doing business automation for large corporations. The e-commerce integrations he created are still being used to automate billions of dollars worth of transactions today.

Marshall Gunnell

Co-founder

Marshall Gunnell hd corporate headshotMarshall Gunnell is the co-founder of VGKAMI. He’s a hardcore gamer and tech geek at heart. He’s also a professional writer, where he spends most of his time dissecting complicated subjects and turning them into easily consumable guides. His work can be found on sites such as PCWorld, How-To Geek, Zapier, StorageReview, CareerFoundry, and many others. Over the past three years, Marshall has published hundreds of articles that have been read over 50 million times.

Marshall, originally from Mississippi, currently resides in Tokyo, Japan, where he writes technical API/software documentation for an international IT company. Before that, he lived in Taipei, Taiwan where he was Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) and a technical staff writer at StorageReview, a US-based online data storage authority.

Although his background is a bit technical, he’s always had a deep passion for video games—mainly story-rich RPGs. As a child, he would spend hours writing character dialog, item and weapon descriptions, character bios, event plots, and other RPG-focused content for a game he was creating in RPG Maker for the PS1. After finishing a chapter in the game, he would write a walkthrough for it with pencil and paper.

When he’s not writing, you’ll find him learning Japanese, drinking cheap whiskey, relaxing in Japanese onsens, and hiking the beautiful mountains of Japan.
