I grew up in Johns Creek, Georgia, where I lived until attending Georgia Tech in 2010. In 2015, I received my Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering with a focus in Networking. During college, I spent two semesters as a software engineering intern. I currently work for Haste, where I do a variety of things including marketing operations, customer service, and data science. I have been involved with Haste since November 2015.

 

Regarding Esports, I’ve been a gamer since a very young age. During middle and high school, I played at least four hours of RuneScape per day. I became very involved in the RuneScape community through my membership in a large clan, where I became a leader. This is where I began developing my community management skills. 

 

During high school and college, I broadened my horizons to other multiplayer games like Halo and the Battlefield series. I also led a multi-thousand person gaming group that played a variety of games including Team Fortress 2, which I have over 1,800 hours in. It quickly became apparent to me that gaming was not only about blowing stuff up, but the community behind it.
