Andrew has been a nerd his whole life. He built his first computer when he was 8, started working in the IT industry at 15, and played competitive Counter-Strike at 16. His interest in amiibo started before their release but didn’t really take off until after the new year. He doesn’t like to admit it but Little Mac and WFT are among the amiibo that he had pre-ordered from Amazon but cancelled before their release. Little did he know a few months later he’d help start Amiibo Alerts. Gaming has always been his passion. He grew up with an NES, Sega Genesis, and PS2 before realizing that PCs truly are better than consoles.
The urge to be a little better, brought on by being a gamer, is what pushes him to help make Amiibo Alerts and Nintendeal amazing communities. Together with team he has built, he is realizing a life-long dream: bringing something helpful and fun to a large group of people. Andrew’s role at Amiibo Alerts and Nintendeal as Community Manager, Editor in Chief, and PR Coordinator, allows him to create and build contacts within the community, review and present products, and stay on top of all things Nintendo.

Sarah grew up loving Pokémon in the 90s, but she didn’t play the video games because they were marketed towards boys (ahem, Game Boy). But she finally played FireRed after meeting her Nintendo-loving partner in college, and she has been hooked on Nintendo games ever since!
Today, Sarah’s favorite titles include Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Splatoon, and Zelda: Breath of the Wild. She and her partner have collected almost every Amiibo out there, and they share a Nintendo-centered YouTube channel, digitalelixer, where they open packs of Pokemon cards and offer guides to various Nintendo titles.
Nintendo is one of Sarah’s greatest passions, and she is excited to be involved with Nintendeal!
Plays: Switch, WiiU, Wii, GameCube, New 3DS, 3DS, DS, Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Micro, PS2, Pokemon TCG, various card games
A native of Minnesota, Brandon has been an avid Nintendo fan for as long as he can remember and enjoys being able to escape into the vast worlds offered in their games. In addition to owning and collecting games for each Nintendo system, Brandon also repairs systems and collects memorabilia from his favorite Nintendo games. He’s very excited about being able to contribute to the amiibo Alerts community in any way that can.
He was initially hesitant to start collecting amiibo and didn’t start collecting until the second wave when he purchased Little Mac as his first amiibo. Since then he’s collected every amiibo available (and will continue to do so) and is looking to even start creating custom amiibo in the future.
Outside of gaming Brandon enjoys riding motorcycle, listening to music, cooking, and is a big sports fan. He loves playing Sm4sh and Kart online, reach out to him if you’d like to play.
