Joe Topliffe:

Graduated from the University of York with a BA in Management. I work in SEO for a digital marketing agency and also undertook a CAM Diploma in Digital Metrics and Analytics. I’m a little bit of a geek (actually maybe a lot) and a huge rom-com fan (not ashamed). I also play guitar and my choice of sport is squash.

Josh Sinclair:

Musician, Proof-reader-in-training, stacker of fresh fruit and vegetables, freelance organizer of concerts and events, philosopher, Youtube Advocate/Viewer, recent graduate, Gamer, Archnerd, fantasy reader and Chocoholic. Hi I’m Joshua I just finished my Theology degree and will not be using it and so I have been asked to write general opinion pieces about music; particularly introducing people to new experiences of old classics and weird stuff nobody’s really listened to and my obsession with the amazing Media Medium of Youtube, where hopefully I’ll also try to show you that Youtube is more than just flying cats farting rainbows and people failing and hurting themselves.

Leigh Hunt

I’m Leigh. I love drawing, reading, making things and staying up late to do all of the above. Guilty of WoW, Warhammer and desperate to do LARP. Currently working on a graphic novel and other crazy things, but in Real Life I am a caseworker for the Legal Services Commission.

Alex Hicks

I’m Alex Hicks, I live in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. I graduated in June 2012 from the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) with a degree in Architectural Drafting. My interests are psychology, poetry, architecture, music, video games, miniature war games, table top role playing games (D&D, Pathfinder, World of Darkness), and random useless facts (yes, I’m that guy). I am currently employed as a drafter at an Engineering firm in Halifax, Nova Scotia. My hobbies are building and painting miniatures, writing poetry, and playing Guild Wars 2 (I’m on Tarnished Coast (NA) and my characters name is “Leafy Ironbark”; look me up if you want!). I’m currently looking into getting my LEED certification and getting more involved with the green building industry.

Specialist subjects: Creative Writing, Architecture, Green Energy

Matt Husselbury

Hi I’m Matt, and I’m a gaming enthusiast, who is a lover of all things retro. I’m also a proud owner of over 15 consoles and hundreds of games. When I’m not gaming I tend to watch a good film, and a bad film. Gotta love a good bad film. You can find Matt’s contributions to OHO here. Matt also debates in the GHoF, available here.


Specialist subjects: Games, Films, Psychology
