Das Esport-Talk Team
Founder & CMO/Host
Martin has been interested in all kinds of games since he was a kid. However, he discovered esports only later on.
After starting his online marketing career in 2011, Martin founded the YoutuberTalk project due to his obsession with the advent of Internet culture. When he got in touch with the esports phenomenon in 2015, he was immediately thrilled.
Martin wanted to share his enthusiasm with as many people as possible and established Esport-Talk with Phillip. He is responsible for the production of the podcasts and maintenance of the website.
On top of that, he works permanently on new concepts and ideas in cooperation with Phillip to improve the experience for our visitors and listeners.
Founder & CEO
Phillip has been actively engaged in esports for quite some time now. He founded his own semi-professional esports organization in 2010, where he managed teams for StarCraft II, DotA 2, and CS:GO. He also worked as an ESL admin for a short period of time.
After passing on the burden of leading his team in 2014, Phillip returned to the scene in October 2015 producing CS:GO videos for his Youtube channel. In addition, he became Head Manager of Escene TV in December 2015.
Thanks to his exceptional experience in esports and the large amount of people he’s got to know over the years, co-founder Phillip provides Esport-Talk with many interesting guests for our podcasts.
On top of that, he works permanently on new concepts and ideas in cooperation with Martin to improve the experience for our visitors and listeners.
Social Media Manager
Daniel found his way into esports through the StarCraft II scene in 2013, where he met Phillip. He has been with the project since March 2016 as our Social Media Manager. By now, his focus has shifted to Counter-Strike and Overwatch, however
Daniel is responsible for our social media channels on Facebook and Twitter. There, he shares new podcasts and the latest news about esports with our community.
He is 20 years old and studies informatics in Hamburg, Germany.
Simon has been a passionate gamer right from the cradle. He is especially interested in games set in the Blizzard universes, although he doesn’t confine himself to those.
He is the editor of MyStarCraft, where he’s been writing articles and conducting interviews with celebrities from the scene since 2013. He does not solely focus on StarCraft II anymore, however, as he enjoys CS:GO and the newly rising WarCraft III scene as well. Also, he likes to watch Super Smash Bros. Melee tournaments sometimes.
Simon joined Esport-Talk in May 2016 and is responsible for the texts below the podcasts, the guest wiki, and the translations (so feel free to contact him if you spot any mistake!). Apart from esports, he likes to spend his time feeding ducks in the park, reading books while being on the bus or train, and writing texts on his persona in third person.
You might be familiar with Mario if you are into the German StarCraft scene. Our 29-year-old editor regularly casts smaller events and cups, and he’s commentated from TaKeTV’s couch a couple of times.
As a streamer, he plays all kinds of stuff, and entertains his little but loyal fellowship. Apart from StarCraft II, Mario is interested in other competitive games such as Overwatch, World of Tanks, and Heroes of the Storm.
Although Mario is a full-time Bundeswehr soldier, his real passion is esports. He’s been supporting Esport-Talk since Oktober 2016 by preparing our interviews, making new contacts, and bringing many fresh ideas into our project.
Mario says about himself, “I’m in love with epsorts.”
