BChaps | Content Creator / Tac-Com Founder / ChapsRadio
My name is Brandon Chapman and I founded Tac-Com back in 2013. I currently reside in Cincinnati, OH working as an engineer. I have been playing Gears of War since the Christmas
of 2006 and since then I've been primarily involved in the community via the forums. You may recognize some of my threads such as the RodCast question gathering posts.
Outside of video games, I enjoy learning about cutting edge technology, doing handy-work around the house, and of course playing/watching Hockey!
Jesse | Graphics Extraordinaire / Content Creator / Web Coordinator
Salutations! My name is Jesse Lambrecht and I’m a graphic designer in Austin, TX that has dedicated her existence to creating graphics for Tac-Com. I’ve been playing Gears of War since Christmas 2006 after my roommate pretty much forced me play so he could get the coop achievements; little did I know it would be love at first chainsaw. My main involvement in the community is on the official forums, reddit and Twitter. I may be most known for being the extremely pale grill in the $1million season announcement video or for creating the #DatSheffys seen at MLG Columbus in July 2016. Not sure which, but I know it’s one of the two…
In my spare time I enjoy playing video games, reading comics & sci-fi novels, unintentionally binge watching shows, and entertaining my canine sidekick.
Dodger | Content Creator / Senior Gears Expert / Gears Honor Recipient
My name is Kyle Martyn, and I've been with Tac-Com since 2013. I live in the panhandle of Florida where I'm stationed as a Security Forces member of the United States Air Force. I first played Gears of War just before Christmas of 2006 and been in love ever since. I have always loved the thrill of competition, whether in sports or video games. Other than that, I also love stories. I'm currently writing a fanfiction/novel for Gears. And I love Pokemon...deal with it.
Swartz | Renowned Adam Fenix Theorist
My name is Daniel Swartz. I’m half Zillanese on my Mothra's side. I speak fluent movie quotes.
I graduated Suma Cum Loudly from University of Fenix with a degree in Theoretical Quantum Mechanic Bairds. In six months I’ll have another degree, in Film Studies, from NCSU.
I’m “not supposed to tell people where I live” anymore. The Judge said if they had to move me again he was gonna, quote, “kick the stupid out of me.” I think he was just sayin’ that though.
I am a member of the Church of Jesus Santiago of Emergence Day Saints and I’ve been Ticker-free since 2012.
I’ve played Gears of War since 2006. It was the very first game I bought with my 360, and I’ve been spending an unjustifiable amount of time, rum and gas money on it ever since. I play other video games as well, and when I’m not doing that, I’m watching films, doing artsy stuff or telling Chaps he spelled something wrong. I like to make nonsense posters, have people flash them on camera at tournaments and then brag about it on Twitter. I also post things to DeviantArt from time to time. I firmly believe that anything that can’t be done while drinking isn’t worth doing at all, which is why I don’t drive or operate heavy machinery…anymore.
Some of that is true. Probably not all that helpful, but if I’m being honest, I didn’t think you’d still be here by now.
