Biography

Drew "Punmaster" Scanlon grew up in California and graduated from UCLA with a B.A. in Design|Media Arts. As a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon, Drew was mischievous enough to learn how to chug a can of Coke in record times. These skills would later be showcased in a video for Giant Bomb, resulting in sugar overdoses and diabetic comas for many poor saps trying to beat his time.

His first break came with Adobe, as he would teach various software workshops at UCLA. After this, he would find work with Electronic Arts doing video game testing. In 2007, Drew started an internship with the Grammy-winning company Motion Theory, where he worked on commercials for big brand names like Nike, Red Bull, and Sears. His work led him to becoming a contract artist for Backbone Entertainment.

Drew Scanlon was hired by Giant Bomb in 2009, where he currently edits videos and continues to chug Coke off-camera.
