About the Staff
These are the people in charge of keeping SMBHQ afloat. If you have a question about the site, these are the people to ask.
Co-Founder, Business Manager, Elder Statesman, and Co-Webmaster of SMBHQ
Location: Maryland, USA
About: Kyle started up SMBHQ along with Jay way back in 1997. Back then the web wasn't full of great Mario pages and Kyle's life wasn't full with a 40-hour/week job and freelance opportunities. He still posts increasingly rare updates, but his role now resembles a business manager more than a content manager. Kyle also provides general oversight of SMBHQ and sometimes barks seemingly random orders at the webmasters (who roll their eyes and say, "Crazy Kyle's at it again," under their breath). One of these days he's resolved to get the Game Info. pages up to date...
Sean Patrick Kelly
Co-Webmaster, Primary Web Design, Graphics, General Site Maintence, Creator of Super Mario Mysteries
Location: Toronto, ON, Canada
About: Sean is the oldest non-founding staff member on the site. He joined in 1998 as the Game Guides editor and helped Kyle and Jay behind the scenes
before he was promoted to co-webmaster in 2004. While busy with the site's day-to-day needs, he still finds time to do the mailbag and occasionally update
his Super Mario Mysteries section.
In the real world, Sean holds a diploma in Computer Programming and is currently studying for a BA in Film Studies.
SMBHQ Co-Webmaster, Invisibly Maintaining Parts of SMBHQ, Preserving NC, Rummaging Through Old Files
Location: California, USA
About: Metal Man has always been close to SMBHQ, even though it has rarely returned the favor. Originating as an avid reader of Jay's comics all the way back in 1999, he has always been lurking in the shadows. In late 2003, he finally got his chance, becoming Section Editor of Super Smash Quest. From there his ties to the site only continued to grow, and at one time he maintained Super Smash Quest, the OG section, and co-Maintained SSS all at once, while also being promoted to the position of SMBHQ co-webmaster. However, aspects of his work were disliked by others, and he faded into obscurity once he took Super Smash Quest off of SMBHQ entirely.
Though not everyone likes what he has to say, his ideas continue to influence SMBHQ as a whole and he acts as the host for SSS's files. He also hopes to work on the mailbag some time.
