He has four brothers and three cats. He has a fiancé and has been helping her raise her son since he was born.
He used to go by ‘MLGSharpShot,’ but when he joined the competitive team, he began dropping the beginning and adding his team initials instead, such as with SNTSharp.
Sharp grew up playing video games, with his first being Donkey Kong Country on the Super Nintendo.
When he was older, he got into Halo 2 and started playing on the MLG playlists. There, people invited him to play GameBattles with them. This was his first taste of competitive play. When he moved on to Call of Duty 4 during his freshman year of high school, he continued playing GameBattles with that title as well. That was also when he started taking gaming more seriously.
He decided to skip his first semester of college because he was in the middle of moving, but never actually went. This was largely due to the fact that he never figured out what he wanted to study outside of gaming.
He first got involved in the pro-scene when he joined Team FeaR’s roster during Call of Duty 4 when he was 15. His parents have always been supportive of his pro-career, especially since he had already been winning money from online tournaments by the time he signed with a pro-team. It helped that when he went to compete at his first LAN event in Anaheim when he with FeaR when he was 15, someone paid for his ticket to get him there as well. His dad had gone with him and had been impressed with the turnout.
He then joined Team Kaliber when it was formed in late 2013. He switched to their stream team in 2016 and remained with them until June 2019.
He uploaded his first YouTube video in late 2010 and has been streaming on Twitch since November 2011. His language isn’t clean.
According to his Twitch overlay, he has around 460 subscribers. Therefore, this should generate him at least $1,150 USD per month, excluding further revenue from tiered subscriptions, merchandise sales, donations, Twitch cheer bit contributions, advertisements and sponsorships.

[My advice to younger players hoping to go pro is,] if you’re young, be mature. I think a lot of times the young players can get on their teammates nerves, so be mature. Have control over your temper and just play a lot.
