He and his three sisters were raised by their mom. He has a dog and a cat.
His name was inspired by the character 'Vicious' from Cowboy Bebop.
As a teenager, he used to play RuneScape. Prior to becoming a pro-player, he was in the US Navy. When he reached high school, he switched to DotA. When the rank system was released, he played with and against some of the big names. These connections set him up for when he began playing LoL and decided to enter the professional scene after his enlistment as a Rank 2 Intelligence Specialist in the US Navy ended.
Saintvicious first started playing in tournaments in 2011. His first team didn’t work out, so he joined TSM just as they were starting out. He was with them for a while but decided to move to CLG because of the infighting between two of the teammates in TSM.
In 2014, he decided to transition from being a pro-player to coaching after he hurt his wrist. Coaching appealed to him, as he felt that he had never really had a good coach to guide him when he was playing competitively, so he felt that there was a lack in the professional LoL scene that he could cater for. He mainly focuses on casting and streaming, outside of his coaching responsibilities. He signed on to Team Liquid's TFT team in July 2019.
He has a long-term girlfriend.

The best way to improve as a team is to practice.
The only longevity you can achieve in esports is through business connections or growing your social media/streaming/youtube. There will never be a time when a player can player for a long period of time… I was lucky enough to have Liquid to help push me to do social media more, but I was doing it on my own as well before him. Not every player is lucky enough to have good management and staff and I feel for those players. Also, it is impossible to go to school while maintaining the level you need to in the LCS.
