David "'Kureyami'" Mark hails from Colorado Springs, Colorado. He has been playing video games since the age of three, and prior to playing League of Legends, competed in amateur fighting game tournaments. In addition to competing in tournaments for Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, and Soul Caliber, he also played Warcraft III, though he never played DotA. He began his transition to League of Legends partially through Season 1 after watching his brother play. Initially playing Ezreal as an AD Carry, Kureyami transitioned to jungle and finally settled in top lane. By rising through solo queue rankings, he networked with other players and managers, and ultimately was recruited to Exposure Gaming in 2013 as their top laner.
