TheBest lives in Woodbury, Minnesota.
TheBest started playing games at a young age on the NES. He entered the competitive SMITE scene after beating Zapman in a ranked game and being asked to join his team. On April 27th 2015, after finishing the SPL Season 2 Spring Split with Denial eSports, he retired stating lack of motivation and happiness.
Three months later, when COGnitive Gaming rebuilt its roster going into SPL Season 2 NA Fall, TheBest came out of retirement and joined the SPL lineup. After both Meerkat and Cabom left the roster following the Super Regionals, Best left to join Team Eager with the rest of the former COGnitive Gaming roster.
