Biography

Penguin started playing Halo in 2007 with the release of Halo 3.

Halo 5

After a top 24 placing at HCS Indianapolis in Halo 2: Anniversary, Penguin broke into the big leagues in late 2015 with the release of Halo 5: Guardians. He initially joined the Noble eSports roster alongside ContrA, Rayne and FilthyG with the intent of competing in the Halo World Championship 2016 NA qualifier series. After a series of team changes, the Noble roster ended up consisting of Penguin, Rayne, Calm and Swift Kill. Noble qualified for the NA Regional Finals as the 7th seed. At NA Regionals, Noble finished top 8, qualifying for Halo World Championship 2016. Between Regionals and Worlds, the Noble roster got into a dispute with the organization, resulting in the players leaving to join Team eLevate. At Worlds, eLevate won their group, sweeping Denial eSports in the process. They then defeated Epsilon eSports in the quarterfinals and lost to Team Allegiance in the semifinals, taking a top 4 finish. Penguin was able to make multiple flashy individual plays and was praised for them during the event. Afterwards, it was revealed Penguin had the highest K/D ratio out of any player at HWC.

After HWC, Penguin joined Renegades alongside Ninja, Victory X and Commonly.

Trivia
