He has an older brother.
His original gamertag had been ‘DuelShift,’ ever since he had started playing Halo at twelve. From there, his name evolved into LeadShift, Wounds, Vanish, and Tartrigde. Then, when he created his Xbox 360 account, he decided on IAmLegion after the Roman Legionaries. He then shortened it to LEGIQN has a reference to the many impersonations that he was capable of, as he felt that it reflected the idea of demonic possession.
LEGIQN started playing video games with his older brother play games on their Nintendo Entertainment System when he was around two years old. He played his first online game in when he was in the 7th grade and one of his friends encouraged him to play Halo 2 with him on the Xbox and soon became addicted to the competitive aspect of it and started attending LAN events in 2009.
Outside of gaming, he also joined his school’s football team during his freshman and sophomore years of high school. However, he stopped playing when he was sixteen years old in order to focus on grinding Halo 3 and attending MLG LAN events after one of his friends who was really could at Halo 3 told him about these events. He would often play between 6 – 7 hours per day after school.
He also started working part-time at Best Buy at that time, although it was mainly on the weekends. He continued doing so until he was 21 years old.
He started uploading the occasional random comedic sketch, chat clip and gaming video to his YouTube channel in early 2011 around the time when he was participating in LAN tournaments. In 2012, he switched over to maining Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. His channel slowly grew in popularity, to the point that he decided to drop out of college from the University of Missouri in late 2013 where he has been majoring in English and Film in order to attempt making streaming and YouTube into a fulltime career.
He is dating @KylieNoels.

I highly recommend that if you’re somebody that’s on the come-up, whether it’s streaming, whether it’s videos, whatever it is your craft is, finish college, because your boy’s definitely going back… and I’m just going to go do that just so I can say that I have a degree.
