F. was born in San Diego, California. As a baby, he was adopted by a couple from Brooklyn, moving to Long Island/Queens shortly afterward. He got into competitive Smite step-by-step. He saw the game, and immediately fell in love as it had all of the competitive strategy that drew him to DotA, but also the 3rd person action feel to it he loved. Knowing he wanted to get more involved, he started writing for SK-Gaming's website, covering the weekly Smite tournaments.

After that, Tiermonster announced they were looking for streamers on their Twitch channel - he took this opportunity and started streaming the game, eventually turning his timeslot into a talk show of sorts. A Reddit thread was made by dmbrandon to find more commentary talent, and despite not having any experience or training, he threw his hat into the ring. He felt he wasn't that great, but he had enough of the right stuff to start off with to get the right attention. From there, he did a few weekly tournaments side-by-side with the Hi-Rez guys, and was then eventually invited to cast at the Smite launch tournament.

From there he did some contract work running the Challenger Cup, and eventually got hired to do more in the eSports world. He now lives in Atlanta, Georgia, working full-time for Hi-Rez Studios.
