I have been playing competitively since the 2003-2004 season, taking a break from going for a Worlds invite from 2009 – 2014. In addition to my accomplishments below, I have been involved with SixPrizes since its inception, head up the podcast, and have worked with almost every top player in the game at some point or another.
