Fresh grew up spending every other week at a different parent's house from the age of eight months old. Although he had played some minor online games before, he was seriously was introduced to video games by a step-brother on each side, both of whom were into Team Fortress 2 (TF2), meaning that he has been maining fps games since the onset of his gaming life. He started playing it as soon as it was released in 2017.
However, he mainly played solo, rather than multiplayer and it was the same with Minecraft. When he was in his early teens, all his TF2 bot grinding paid off and he found himself often ranking at the top of the leaderboards when he started playing in pub matches.
As a teenager, he also played some soccer, tennis and rugby at school. But, academia had never really been his thing despite going to a private school, and so he decided to drop out of high school at sixteen to pursue a trade as an electrician. At that point, he had barely been attending school since he was ~10 years old. He put that on hold soon after, when his streaming took off and now streams fulltime instead.
Although he dreamed of becoming a pro-gamer, he just didn't see it as a realistic dream until after he met the Click crew in-game in
Despite being one of the top ranked TF2 players, he only started streaming soon after Fortnite released under the tag 'MrFreshAsian'. Fortunately for him, it didn't take too long for him to be noticed and he had enough donators to help him to top up his internet data whenever he started running low.
He then joined Renegades in August 2018, and although he remained on the team, he soon left the the house in order to join the Click House because he needed a better internet connection. Due to his high level of skills, and luck, he was able to accumulate over 700,000 Twitch followers wihthin his first six months of serious streaming. He left RNG in November 2019 and then joined Luminosity Gaming on March 21, 2020.
He decided to change his Twitch handle from 'MrFreshAsian' to 'Fresh' in May 2020. However, in August 2021, his Twitch partnership was revoked, leading to him leaving the platform altogether. Since then, he has decided to just upload content to his YouTube channel a couple of times a week. He continues to compete professionally, though.
MrFreshAsian is estimated to have at least 2,400 subscribers. This would minimally generate him a monthly income of $6,000 USD, excluding additional revenue from tips, sponsorships, tournament winnings and advertising.
He doesn’t have a set schedule, but he streams almost daily for between 6 – 10 hours a session.
