His parents are very supportive of his career path. He also has a sister and two dogs.
He has always been a fan of English Bulldogs, so he always used it as his IGN. However, he found that was often taken and so would need to add something to it. Then, when Battlefield 3 came along, he decided to adopt a word with a military theme and has been using it as his name ever since.
AdmiralBulldog grew up playing video games and wouldoftern play video games with his friends on his Super Nintendo Entertainment System when he was in grade school. In 2005, he started playing Defense of the Ancients (DotA) and has been in love with the game ever since.
He was introduced to professional gaming by Dendi in early 2012 when they played in an online event. He enjoyed it and so looked for a team to join and managed to get a spot on No Tidehunter in September 2012. He remained with them until he and Dendi decided to form there own team in April 2013, which became known as Alliance. He stayed with them until August 2016, when he decided to leave Alliance's pro-team to focus on being a professional commentator and full-time streamer. He remiains a streamer and co-owner of the organization, though.
After taking a hiatus from streaming in February 2020, he opened an alternative account called zackrawrr.
AdmiralBulldog is estimated to have earned at least $630,000 USD from various tournaments. Otherwise, it is speculated that he has around 4,75o monthly subscribers, which would earn him around $11,875 - $16,625 USD. This excludes any revenue that he might generate from sponsorships, tips, advertising and commentating.
