About Us



CultureJam is a rebranded version of the gaming site site Those Gamers. CultureJam is a bigger beast with a wider remit, and it needs people to help make it the site it should be; an all-purpose place for people to come and get great insights into pop culture.

Meet the Team

These are the rad people jamming up your culture.

Ben Carmichael

Creator of the Jam

Ben founded CultureJam, and is the main news and technology reporter.

Brian McDonald

Editor of the Jam

As handsome as he is Irish, Brian makes sure the CultureJam content is legible, and is also VERY handsome and totally didn’t write this himself. A former NZGamer writer, he knows far less about culture than he does about jam.

Brian is on Twitter at @Xaphriel.

Hannah Lee

Writer of the Jam

Hannah is a Wellington-based policy advisor with a secret past working at a videogame store.

While known for her fanatical devotion to BioWare and the Dragon Age franchise, Hannah also enjoys quality time with arty Indie games, simulations and triple AAA offerings – particularly if they offer a romance option.

Pepper Curry

Writer of the Jam

Born in Auckland and raised in the hellhole of America, Pepper is a reformed World of Warcraft addict who spends most of her gaming time on the Nintendo Switch. She’s a diehard Pokémon, Zelda, and Banjo Kazooie fan, but also loves a good multiplayer FPS.

She is also a professional illustrator and has her own online brand under Pepper Raccoon.
