Kieran Menor, also known as simply "Kieran" or "Boom.dk", is a former administrator and the founder of SMW Central. He first became active in the ROM hacking scene on Acmlm's Board, where he befriended Smallhacker. In late 2005, Kieran and Smallhacker began working on what would become SMWC, first releasing it to the public on 1 January 2006. Kieran was the site's owner and lead programmer until 18 June 2019, at which point he transferred the server to Noivern.
Despite being the founder of a site dedicated to SMW hacking, Kieran has never taken up SMW hacking himself. He has clarified that his desire to create SMW Central was primarily due to a personal interest in the community built around ROM hacking, rather than an interest in hacking itself.
