I got into gaming at a young age when my older brother brought home an NESÃ‚Â and the gameÃ‚Â Tecmo bowl. He handedÃ‚Â me the controller and it all began. I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get into competitive gaming until Halo came out for Xbox. Ã‚Â I thought Halo looked sickÃ‚Â so I played it for fun and noticed that I was pretty good at it. Ã‚Â I decided to begin attendingÃ‚Â local tournaments and startÃ‚Â competingÃ‚Â with a team for 3v3s. Ã‚Â After competing in a few tournaments,Ã‚Â I decided that IÃ‚Â didn’t enjoyÃ‚Â team-oriented games inÃ‚Â a competitive format andÃ‚Â moved onto single player competitive games. Ã‚Â After thinking backÃ‚Â to all the different competitive games that I hadÃ‚Â played inÃ‚Â the past,Ã‚Â Street Fighter II was my favorite. Ã‚Â I picked up Street Fighter II Turbo andÃ‚Â the rest is history.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â
What are some of your biggest accomplishments in regards to Street Fighter?
Ã‚Â In my opinion, the biggest accomplishment to dateÃ‚Â would be winning EVO 2010 for Street Fighter II HD Remix. Ã‚Â Aside from that,Ã‚Â I placedÃ‚Â 9thÃ‚Â at EVO 2013 for Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition 2012 and 4th place at EVO 2014 for Ultra Street Fighter 4.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â EVO is the biggest fighting game tournament of the year whereÃ‚Â thousands of players from around the world come to compete.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Street Fighter is one of theÃ‚Â more difficult games to remain consistent in due to itsÃ‚Â extremely high caliber players in the top 32. Ã‚Â Other accomplishments would includeÃ‚Â qualifyingÃ‚Â for Capcom Cup 2014, a 16-man tournament where you areÃ‚Â required to qualify by obtaining points from placing high in tournaments around the world. Ã‚Â It’s been great to compete and win at otherÃ‚Â majors throughout the yearsÃ‚Â such as Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Qualifier, The Fall Classic 2014, Absolute Battle 2014, Winter Brawl 2015, and more.
What other games do you play competitively or for fun?
I play nearly every 2D fighting game for fun. I also really enjoy playing games like Destiny, Final Fantasy, Dark Souls, Skyrim, etc.
What up and coming gaming events will you be attending?
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be attending EVO 2015, EGL Dallas 10k, First Attack in Puerto Rico, Summer Jam, and SCR (Ã¢â‚¬Â¦and whatever other tournaments are coming up!).
