When he started playing Call of Duty, he wanted to go by ‘Ego,’ but it was taken. So, he just ran through synonyms until he finally found on ‘Vanity.’ He wanted to go with it because he felt that it reflected his self-confidence.
vanity grew up playing video games with his dad and uncles and had played a bit of Counter-Strike 1.6 with them over the years as well. However, he only first got seriously into shooters when he was fifteen with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which he played for about nine months before deciding to drop it when he discovered that he would have to wait until he was eighteen to compete at major tournaments. He had competed in a few minor LAN evens prior to that. This was his main motivation to switching to Counter- Strike: Global Offensive during season 21.
After high school, he went on to attend college.
Soon after moving to CS:GO in mid-2015, he started competing in LAN events with the goal of going pro. He made his debut in the MDL with StrongLegs, Caboose, MaTM and a stand-in. He spent the next few seasons jumping to different rosters due to both he and his various teammates still being in school and college at the time.
He mained CS:GO until December 2020, when he started playing Valorant. He made a formal announcement of his retirement from CS:GO in favor of pursuing pro-Valorant on January 1, 2021. This decision came after his then-current organization Chaos Esports Club disbanded and he felt that there was no longer enough support and opportunities for pro-players in the CS:GO scene. So, he and his Valorant teammates decided to form their own team called NeverDone, which was then picked up by Version1 following month. He continues to act as their in-game leader. When international LAN events started opening up again in mid-2021 in the wake of the success of the covid vaccine rollout, their team performed well, defeating many big organizations including FaZe and EnVy.
