Joe Rybicki got his start in the videogame industry in 1996, as a writer and editor for P.S.X. magazine. A year later, P.S.X. became The Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine, where Joe remained until its closure at the end of 2006. Moving into a freelance role, Joe earned bylines from top publications from all over the videogame and technology field. Most recently, he has transitioned primarily into consulting, content production, and other behind-the-scenes work in the videogame industry.

Joe lives on the outskirts of Cleveland, Ohio, with his wife, his daughter, two insane Labrador retrievers, and two equally insane cats.
