This isn’t your ordinary post and it shouldn’t be. I wanted to say Congratulations to our very own Steven Artlip (Steve519) for his recent accomplishment as one of the newest inductees of Xbox MVP program. I wanted to add Steve’s bio (below) as we all know Steve but we don’t always know what he does behind the scenes of Platform Nation, but the MVP program has noticed and there couldn’t have been a better choice than Steve. So stop by and congratulate him as the newest member of the MVP program.
Name: Steven Artlip
Podcast: P*N Lock and Load
How long podcasting: Since March 06 I believe
As for about me I’m the Editor-in-Chief of this awesome website, PlatformNation.com. A site that we started for our community and to give us and our fellow podcasters a stronger voice in the community, with gamers, developers and publishers.
Before all my gaming time I actually spent 5 years of active duty in the United States Marine Corps working on CH-46 helicopters, those were some really great times.
When my time was up in the Marine Corps I moved back to Seattle (where I was born) and started working for the US Post Office, a job that I am still doing, full time, to today.
Many years ago I started my gaming “career” as a podcaster over at XBL Radio and that is where and when I really started to break into the community and when I really started seeing how great our community really is. After about a couple years of doing that show I left to start up Platform Nation and if you have been one of those that have followed us from day one then you know of how we have evolved the site into what it is today, a thriving gaming community that cares more about our readers and listeners more then anything else. All this while trying to juggle a full-time job at the Post Office as well as trying to raise my awesome 18 month old daughter with my amazing wife to the best of my ability.
This bio was posted on P*N November 6, 2009 and now he has something more to add to his bio,awesome job Steve!
