He has a dog and two cats.
When he first started playing Hearthstone, a common pun that people would joke about was that when someone played the Stonetusk Boar or Huffer Boar, that they had ‘Boar Control,’ which was a play on ‘Board Control.’ He liked the joke and decided to adopt it as his handle when he began streaming.
BoarControlHS was introduced to Hearthstone by a couple of his friends near the end of closed beta. They had discovered Hearthstone through World of Warcraft and encouraged him to try out Hearthstone because they thought that he would enjoy it due to his love of strategy games.
He had enjoyed other card games prior to it and liked the mechanics and aesthetics of Hearthstone. These factors soon had him addicted to the game. He therefore applied and managed to get a key in December 2013. He particularly enjoys playing with mid-range decks.
He started participating in pro-tournaments in 2015. He was recruited to join Torpedo’s original roster in March 2019.

[In order to become a professional Hearthstone player,] you need to be consistently high on the ladder. Obviously, there’s various ways you can break onto the Hearthstone scene; there’s through tournaments, and there’s through streaming as well. So, if you stream and you regularly get Rank 1 legend and you get high finishes on ladder at the end of the season… you’ve got some players who are better in tournaments and some players who are better on ladder, but as long as you’re consistently good at the game in one aspect, you will break though. You just have to be… very, very good because only the very top set of people will break through.
