He, him, his. Capricorn. Born, raised, and based in Chicago, IL. One time on stage I played a weather man cosplaying as Michael Meyers during the nuclear holocaust.

Write for Us
We aren't called FanSided for nothing. Our network of sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites are powered by fans that want to cover their passions! Whether you are just looking to get your start in online media or you want to contribute to your favorite site as a hobby, FanSided wants to hear from you.
Our work is regularly featured on SI.com and Bleacher Report and many FanSided writers have gone on to work full-time in online media. FanSided hired over ten of its own writers in 2013 and there are currently FanSided alums working at other major media outlets and with professional sports teams.
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
Patrick is VP, Content and Strategy for the FanSided. He has been with the network since 2009 when he was hired to be the expert at Arrowhead Addict. He currently heads up FanSided's editorial headquarters in Chicago and is proud to be a tortured fan of the Kansas City Chiefs, Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Indians. The Cleveland Cavaliers winning the NBA Championship was the greatest day of his life. Go Buckeyes.
