BaRRaCCuDDa currently resides in Cartersville, Georgia. He and his siblings used to play video games on the Nintendo, GameCube, and Nintendo 64. This evolved into LAN parties on weekends with his friends. Competitive gaming was a pipe dream of his, a major interest for the young BaRRaCCuDDa who watched MLG tournaments for Halo 2 and Halo 3. He graduated from college in 2013 with a B.S. in Exercise and Health Science. After college, he didn't have a job, allowing a smooth transition to competitive gaming in Halo: Reach, competing in MLG Columbus 2012 for the team Crystal Clear. He learned about SMITE, soon becoming one of the first competitive SMITE players.
