I have been into competitive Overwatch way back when APEX was a competition and Seagull helped EnvUs burn blu– I mean burn bright. I have always been active in the gaming world but it wasn’t until I attended the MLG Overwatch Invitational 2016 event in Vegas that I wanted to make esports a career. I wrote articles for Overwatch and DOTA for 2 years prior to changing my focus on video and graphic design work. I am usually active in the Reddit threads and spent the off-season watching Overwatch Contenders, looking for the next big names and making highlights videos. I currently do highlights and produce our weekly news show but be on the look-out for special video projects.
