As we head into SimsVIP’s 7th year of news, guides, tips, tutorials, and original content, I wanted to take a moment to introduce (and in some cases re-introduce) the amazing and talented staff that is the fuel of SimsVIP. We have the honor of working with some amazing people from the community, so we want to make sure you know who they are. 🙂
❗ Be sure to bookmark our Staff Page for future reference!
Alexis (Editor-in-Chief/Owner) – Alexis founded SimsVIP in 2011 right after Aliens abducted her from Bella Goth’s house. Sims has been a part of her life for 17 years, and we don’t see that changing anytime soon. She also wants to live in a world full of Llamacorns. Grilled Cheese anyone?
ManagerJosh (Tech & Security) – Josh has not been able to update his bio as he’s traveling and not answering Alexis’ request to provide one…It should be completed once the llamas let him go…
GeorgefPlay (Graphical Design) – George is an 18 year old college student living in Athens, Greece. He’s been a graphics designer for SimsVIP since 2011, creating banners, logos, and other assets for the site. Aside from The Sims George also loves to work on his drawing and photography skills while listening to Lady Gaga. That’s about all….for now.
HazzaPlumbob (Graphical Design) – Hi I’m Harry, you may know me as HazzaPlumbob on Twitter where I make renders using The Sims 4! I’m an avid photoshop artist and a life-long Sims fan, I love to contribute to the community with my artwork and really enjoy turning fun gameplay ideas into renders inspired by The Sims official key art.
Scarlet (Modding Editor) – I’m a wife and mother. I’ve been playing The Sims series since 2000 when the first one was released. I fell in love with it and have been playing ever since. I started modding in Sims 2 and continued to do so for Sims 3 and Sims 4. Other games I love to play are the Dragon Age series, Final Fantasy, and World of Warcraft. When I’m not gaming I enjoy photography, cooking, and swimming.Twitter: https://twitter.com/ScarletQueenKatFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/scarletqueenkat
iamkerri (Graphical Design & PDF Guides) – Hey I am Kerri, a coffee drinking, zombie running, digital painting, web/graphic designing, sims fan from Toronto. I love the sims so much I have a sims tumblr which many people follow, you might have heard of it. I’m pretty friendly, this is starting to feel more like a dating profile bio then an about me so I’m just going to end it here.
Ines (Graphical Design & PDF Guides) – Ines likes spending her days playing the Sims – obviously. She would describe herself as a legacy player and hopeless builder but she occasionally tries it anyways. When she is not bossing her Sims around, you can usually find her doing something creative, reading a book or obsessing over a TV show. She is a student from Germany that is really excited to be part of this great community.
WeeAlbet (Editor) – Wee Albet, or Peter, is a 26 year old student about to complete his degree in Forensic Anthropology. He has been a huge fan of The Sims since it first released in 2000, and joined SimsVIP in 2013. Being a gamer for all his life, his other gaming favourites include the Resident Evil, Assassin’s Creed and Tomb Raider series’. When he isn’t gaming, he is either working or wondering what game to play.
Lissykin (Author) – Lissykin is a devoted Sims fan, known to experience time warps when sucked into the vortex of her little Sims world. She’s a long time member of DNA Request Team and loves being able to share her love of sim creation, building and design with the awesome Sims community. When she’s not lost in her Sim legacies, she can be found playing with her pet bunny, Foo Foo, or binge watching sci fi, horror and South Korean TV programs.
Benji (Editor) – Benji’s basic traits are creative, goofball and foodie, but he likes to think he’s unlocked a few others already. Born, raised and still living in São Paulo, Brazil, Benji has been playing since the day The Sims came out in 2000, and he likes to spend his time equally in live mode and build/buy, where he usually honors his heritage and creates lots inspired by Brazilian Modern architecture.
Simserasera (Author) – When not playing Sims or chasing around her toddler IRL, Sarah is usually baking. There are also rumors she might be a Vampire because she is frequently awake at 2 am and requires SPF 100+ for any outdoor activities.

hayleylauren (Building Contributor) – Hayley is a 20 year old English Literature student from the UK who’s been obsessed with The Sims franchise since The Sims Makin’ Magic. With a love of interior design and aesthetically pleasing décor, you’ll almost always find her experimenting with new ideas in Build Mode. In those rare times that she isn’t playing the game, she’s guaranteed to be lost in a book, binge watching TV shows, or wasting hours on Youtube.
NerdyPunkGirl (Author) – After being sucked into the beautiful land of Pleasantview about ten years ago, NerdyPunkGirl has since been messing with Sim’s lives and building all sorts of homes for them. Recently, she has gotten a lot better at building aesthetically pleasing homes after years and years of practice. When not diving head-first into the worlds of Oasis Springs and San Myshuno alike, NPG likes to read, write about her beloved Sims, as well as play other video games and watch lots of TV. But…her life is really mostly about The Sims. Who’s life isn’t really?
