Saiyan is from Orlando, Florida.
Saiyan broke out shortly after the beginning of the Fall 2016 Open Circuit, joining Contagious alongside TriPPPeY, Chaser and FireBird. The team quickly established itself as a top amateur squad. Chaser was replaced by V t3ct9 by week 3 of the season. The following week, FireBird was replaced by Brainstorm. In Week 5, TriPPPeY and Saiyan played alongside TireIron and Scaryotic, bagging their first Legendary Cup win. In the final week of the season, Scaryotic was replaced by BoamX. The team won the final cup of the season and attended HCS Las Vegas 2016 under the 6S Gaming organization, hoping to win the Open Circuit Finals and qualify for Relegation. They were successful, finishing 2nd in the OC Finals and top 12 in the overall tournament. At Relegation, the squad represented The MoneyMatches Team, taking 4th place out of the four teams at the event and failing to qualify for pro status.
During the offseason, Saiyan at first failed to land on a pro squad, but after UGC St. Louis 2017, he joined the pro-seeded Luminosity Gaming alongside Ninja, Victory X and eL ToWn. They secured the 5th seed going into ME Las Vegas 2017. In Vegas, Luminosity managed to qualify for Halo World Championship 2017 after a 4-1 victory over Splyce. They ultimately finished in the top 6 after a loss to Team EnVyUs. At Worlds, Luminosity were placed in a pool with London Conspiracy and Team Liquid. They finished below Liquid following a 3-0 loss and emerged in the Winners Bracket with a match against Splyce. Luminosity took the heated contest 4-3 and moved into the jaws of OpTic Gaming, who swept them out of the bracket. In Losers, Luminosity were swept by the eventual second place finishers in Team EnVyUs and went home with a top 6 finish.
After Worlds, Luminosity made a team change, replacing eL ToWn with a returning TriPPPeY. At UMG Daytona, Luminosity finished 2nd in its pool. In the Championship Bracket, they were upset early by Oxygen Supremacy in a 3-0 sweep. They managed to eliminate Believe the Hype and Evil Geniuses before bowing out to Splyce for a top 8 finish.
