Early on I was obsessed with superhero comics and cartoons, and as I grew so did my interests. I would binge watch shows before the phrase entered the zeitgeist. I am a committed opening weekender and a film festival frequenter. You can also catch me at comic book stores and comic cons as my love of superhero content is still as strong as ever.

About FanSided

The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.

Zach Best Co-CEO

Best co-founded the company in April 2007. He manages the growth of the network from a business and financial standpoint.

Patrick Allen VP, Content & Strategy
