NAME: Jeff Simpkins
BIO: Been saying “My name is Jeff” for way longer than you. I started out in eSports playing Rainbow Six: Siege competitively and on the back of that founded an organisation called Cognate eSports. From there I went on to buy Barrage in 2016 and I believe we are on track to making it one of the best UK organisations again. I am a huge supporter of Special Effect which is a charity that helps people with physical disabilities to play video games again and I have raised just short of £3,500 for them to date. My favourite game currently is still Rainbow Six: Siege however I am a huge fan of the Fallout and Elder Scrolls games too.
NAME: Connor Dyson
ROLE: Marketing Director
BIO: Hello, my name is Connor. But you may know me as DyzoN within eSports. I am the Marketing Director here at Barrage. I am 19 years old with over three years experience within many eSports occupations. This has allowed me to broaden my knowledge and delve into various positions in multiple organisations in the past. My focus is entirely on advancing Barrage with our public relations and promoting our engagement with our ever growing fan base. Barrage has always been home. The future is looking as bright as ever! #Battalion
NAME: Dan Hind
ROLE: Community Manager
BIO: Hey I’m Dan, I’m the community manager here at Barrage. Which basically means I keep a watchful eye over our social media and try to keep you guys up to date with what our teams are up to. I’ve been with the organisation for a pretty long time now, having worked with Jeff at Cognate also and I was previously the Twitch manger. As you might imagine I’m a big fan of eSports and the main games I’m into are League of Legends and CSGO with a little bit of Overwatch sprinkled on the side. I’m basically just an all-round nerd and long-time PC gamer. Also I’m better than Jeff at Rainbow 6 Siege… Kappa

ROLE: YouTube Manager
BIO: My name is Tobias, I'm from Holland and I'm the YouTube manager at Barrage eSports. I've been around in the eSports scene for about 4 years now.

NAME: William Dunnigan
ROLE: Videographer & Content Creator
BIO: For about 5 years now I have known that I wanted to do something in the games industry or something in the films industry. For me, filming, editing and gaming has always been a hobby that I've wanted to take seriously and now, with Barrage, I can finally do that. I am mainly a console gamer and I am currently enjoying playing Overwatch and Destiny as my two favourite games. I am responsible for Barrage's highly rated 'Battalion' series amongst other projects.
