Thing2 has been gaming ever since he was six years old, starting with the Game Cube. Thing2's first Call of Duty was Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, but he did not start gaming competitively until Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 - the beginning of Call of Duty: Black Ops. The thought of competitive players making thousands of dollars by playing video games attracted Thing2 into the Competitive side of Call of Duty. Out of his two brothers, he would always be the one to beat whatever game they were playing on the first try and he would always be better at video games. His competitive gaming career took off when he started attending big events including MLG Columbus in 2011 where he placed in the Top 20 during the Call of Duty: Black Ops season. He continued on, working harder and harder. When he joined Fuse, this is when he had his big break as they placed 7th at UMG Dallas in 2013, the last event for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Afterwards, they showed everyone that this was not luck as they continued to top and do well by placing 5th at the MLG Fall Championship 2013 playing Call of Duty: Ghosts with Fuse alongside Historify!
