Holding the position of Lead Editor, I have been opened to the great opportunity of meeting a variety of inspirations in the gaming industry  as well as trying out many of today’s leading games. While spending my days as a Maths student, DoubleUpGaming has been all the inspiration I need to continue my journey into the industry.

I have always had a passion for gaming and sharing ideas about them with people. While studying at college I started to see my strengths in management so why not combine this with my passion for gaming? Splash a bit of writing in there and that brings me to DoubleUpGaming where I can work with an awesome group of people to do what I love!

  • Power Up: Invincibility Star
  • Super Power: Teleportation
  • Favourite Game Series: Assassin’s Creed or Halo



Jonny Brunning

Video team

Having made videos from a young age, it’s amazing that I get to continue my passion along with playing a ton of video games at the same time! As I’m behind the camera, I have the ability to control the people in front of it (Mwahaha). I can’t wait to make them do more stupid things for our Youtube audience!

  • Power Up: Super Mushroom
  • Super Power: Flight
  • Favourite Game Series: Minecraft
