HIs parents are supportive of his career choice, since he was responsible about it.
When he was eleven, he constantly changed his IGNs. One day, he asked his friend to suggest a new one, and the friend recommended ‘karrigan.’ He went on a two-week win streak, and decided that it was a lucky name, so he stuck with it. He did not realize that it was similar to a StarCraft character’s name until later.
Karrigango grew up playing video games. He was introduced to Counter-Strike 1.6 in 2001 by his brother. However, it wasn’t love at first play. It took him about six months to really get into it. This was mainly due to the implementation of some much-needed updates.
After high school, he went on to attend university, where he graduated with a Master's Degree in Business Administration and Auditing. During his studies, he always told his teams that his university work and tests would come first, meaning that he would be unable to attend tournaments that clashed with his tests. However, he did commit to being fulltime pro as soon as he completed his degree.
Karrigango got his start in the pro scene when he was very young, as he joined mouseports in November 2010 after having started out with Full Gaming for a while before that. After over a year, the team disbanded, and he went on to sign with Fnatic in March 2012. But he left them to rejoin mouseports when the reassembled for CS:GO in December that year after Fnatic removed him from the ESEA roster. He remained with them for a year before returning to Fnatic in May 2013. He went back to mouseports again in October 2014.
However, tis was short lived, as he moved to Team Dignitas in December that year and then moved to TSM a couple of months after that. At the end of 2015, the team’s contracts were set to expire and TSM showed no interest in renewing their contract. So, they decided to form their own team, called Team Question Mark. They changed their name to Astralis in January 2016. However, despite being one of the founding team members, he was benched in October 2016. Fortunately for him, within a few days of his being benched, he was contacted by FaZe Clan with an offer to join their roster. He was also with them for two years before being benched again in December 2018. He then briefly joined Team Envy on loan in January 2019 before returning to mousesports yet again, this time as their IGL in March 2019 and remained with them until February 2021, when he decided to accept FaZe’s offer to join them as their IGL.
He has a fiancé.
