Owner & Operations Manager

Name: Crystal Watanabe
Age: 34
Location: Honolulu, Hawaii

Background: The owner of Jabberjays.net, Crystal holds a Bachelor’s degree in English and brings nearly three years of fansite experience to the team. Her fan-reach stretches far beyond The Hunger Games into other fandoms and interests. A Game of Thrones fan since the late 1990s, she is the owner of Fictional Food and EnderWiggin.net. She is also a published cookbook author, having co-authored the popular cute bento cookbook Yum-Yum Bento Box: Fresh Recipes for Adorable Lunches in 2010.

Managing News Editor

Name: Carla Pinilla
Age: 29
Location: Germany

Background: Carla is a Chemical Engineer from Panama (Central America), currently doing a Master’s in Polymer Science in Berlin, Germany. A consummate fangirl, she has been involved in various fandoms since her teens, running several fandom sites under her domain Kyoudai.net. She also designed and currently runs the official website of Latino Lit author Silvio Sirias. When she’s not thinking way too deeply about The Hunger Games series, she’s reading, writing (mainly fanfiction), or watching way too many TV shows.

Public Relations Manager

Name: Sarah Napier
Age: 20
Location: United Kingdom

Background: Sarah is currently studying for her Bachelor of Arts in English Literature, whilst working part time as a brand and marketing manager. She has been involved in website production from a very young age, and it was this passion that led her to create her own comprehensive entertainment site, Focus Film. Sarah loves the film industry, and is currently working to root herself firmly amongst it. The Hunger Games is her safe haven from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but she also loves the works of JK Rowling, and travelling the world.
