I started Commentating in 2003 with team mate EJ, for Return to Castle Wolfenstein, personally I started out casting to build my self-confidence with public speaking and also a way to give back to gaming community that I had grown to love. EJ & I co-founded Gamestah Radio* (*note: see Gamestah History) and not long later EJ & I hosted Craptastic Chatback which ran for 108shows.
Well 5yrs later, 400+ casts, 70+ finals (of which 35+ Grand Finals), 10+ Live/Lan Events, TV appearances & TV Co-Hosting, plus International travel to live events, I have done a lot and it’s fair to say that besides EJ I am one of the most experienced Commentators for Gaming in the world. See below of a list of Live Events, Games covered, Television Appearances & Online Competitions covered.
Commentating is something I love to do and hope that in the future I can continue to do so for along as I can. Why wouldn’t I? Gaming & Commentating has taken me around the world and provided a lot for me, because of Gaming & Commentating I am one of only four people featured in the new Intel Centrino 2 promotion. Who wouldn’t want to do it!Gaming History
I first got a taste of gaming way back when the Fountain & Commodore 16 were brand new out of the box. From there I progressed through Amiga 500, Sega Mega Drive, Playstations, Pentium 1, Pentium 3, Pentium 4 & the latest pc a Core 2. With each of the upgrades came the ability to play the latest and greatest games, why else to people upgrade J. Some of the earliest games that occupied most of my time were Populous , Settlers, Warcraft. But when games like Doom, Hexen, Wolfenstein 3D came along First Person Shooters had me hooked.
Until Quake2 came along it was just about single player vs the computer, with Quake 2 and followed by Quake 3 & Cable Internet a whole new world of gaming opened up for me. Now Gaming moved from this casual past time into this serious multiplayer competitive environment against other ‘real’ people and I couldn’t get enough. From Quake3 I moved seriously into Return to Castle Wolfenstein, one of the all time best multiplayer games ever. This opened up team vs team, serious strats and practice something i had been longing for. Players of all ages battle nightly against each other, it was/is an amazing thing and is the reason why I still love to play multiplayer games! From Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Enemy Terriority & Call of Duty followed. Along the way I’ve played a bit of Counter Strike, Soldier of Fortune, Day of Defeat etc.
From a Team or Clan perspective I started out in Rangers with good friend EJ and two of my brothers, from there I joined the newly formed Team Immunity and haven’t looked back. Team Immunity is a very successful team and ranks highly in all competitions we have competed in, in 2007 I joined the Counter Strike in Paris for the World Finals of the Electronic Sports World Cup - Counter Strike 1.6 competition as Coach/Reserve Player. In recent times my competitive game play has slid a little as my career as a Pilot is up and flying & running Gamestah Radio, however I still find the time to jump on a server and have some fun or working with the team. I’m looking forward to the next competition I’m able to dedicate myself to and win.Commentator for the following Game Types:
