He started to garner attention within the scene at the start of 2009 as a member of High Society. He attended MLG Meadowlands 2009 and earned an impressive 12th place finish. From there he left to join Active Rush and got top 12 in two events with the squad.

Halo 2 Anniversary
HCS Season 1
At the start of HCS Season 1, Aries joined OpTic Gaming and attended Iron Games Columbus 2014 with Flamesword, Ace and Assault, placing 3rd. The squad returned at UGC St. Louis 2015, this time taking 4th place. Aries was then released from OpTic Gaming and joined Noble Black. Alongside Arkanum, APG and Maniac, Aries placed a disappointing 9-12th at Gamers For Giving 2015, but Noble Black managed to hold onto the 8th seed for the season finals. At PAX East 2015, Aries and Noble Black turned heads, upsetting multiple teams in a huge Losers Bracket run that ended with them placing 3rd. All in all, Aries proved in Season 1 that he was good enough to play with the best.
HCS Season 2
Noble Black went through some changes in the off-season, with Maniac and APG leaving and being replaced by Ninja and Prototype. They finished 7th at Iron Games Atlanta 2015, losing to Velocity and Winterfox. On April 30th, after Noble picked up a new team, the organization confirmed the departure of Aries. Aries then opted to stay with Ninja, and the duo recruited Shooter and Spartan. First competing as "The Other Guys", the team was quickly acquired by Team Liquid. Aries and Team Liquid finished 7th at their first event together, HCS Indianapolis. They followed up with a top 8 finish at the HCS Season 2 Finals. Halo 2: Anniversary was somewhat of a breakout game for Aries, as he solidified his status as a top-tier player with high placings on a variety of teams.
During the offseason, Aries was dropped from Team Liquid as they built a new roster around Ninja. While not having a permanent team, Aries formed Daytona with APG, iTz So Frosty and Rabid for Iron Games Daytona 2015. They finished 1st, giving Aries his first notable tournament win. On January 12, 2016, Aries joined Dream Team alongside Prototype, TireIron and longtime teammate JessePeace. The team eventually qualified for the HWC 2016 NA Regional Finals as the 8th seed. In addition, the team was invited to the X Games Aspen 2016 invitational, where they placed top 8. At the NA Regionals, Dream Team finished top 16, failing to qualify for Halo World Championship 2016.
