Bio: I started playing in December of 2009 after hearing about PokΓ©mon tournaments from a friend. Before then, I casually collected cards and showed them off during recess. My initial 2.5 years in the Junior Division has led to me to Masters now, where I’m in the middle of my second year. I started writing for 6P Free in November, 2016, before fatefully winning Dallas and joining the UG team in February. Outside of PokΓ©mon, I’m a high school Junior with hopes of California or the Midwest for College in either a field of Engineering or Data Science.
