“Mobile gaming not only brings down the barriers and distance in competitions, but it also gives you the chance of playing anywhere, anytime.”

Tell us something a lot of people don’t know about you.

I was a music teacher before I got into esports.

What was your first experience with video games?

I discovered Abe’s Oddysee at 5 years old, and it’s been pure and unconditional love since.

What’s your favorite game?

Multiplayer? League of Legends. Single player? The Witcher 3, it’s a masterpiece.

Which video game villain do you most relate to?

Kefka Palazzo, from Final Fantasy VI. He’s pure evil incarnate, in my opinion the most well developed villains in videogame history.

Who was your first gaming crush?

Rinoa, from Final Fantasy VIII. The world is divided between those who had a crush on her and dishonest people. 

Where do you think mobile gaming sits in the wider gaming world?

Mobile Gaming is the future. Mobile gaming not only brings down the barriers and distance in competitions, but it also gives you the chance of playing anywhere, anytime.

If you could add any character — even if they're not from Nintendo — to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, who would it be?

Garen, from League of Legends. He’d be so fitting with his spinning technique.

What’s your favorite feature of the Red Magic 3

It’s got to be Game Space 2.0. Having the ability to control the CPU and GPU clock, fan speed, and notifications, it’s a dream for anyone who wants to play on mobile.

“Unlike other phones I’ve used, the Red Magic 3 can run everything on the highest settings.”

How did you get into streaming?

I started off making YouTube videos and the demand grew from there, so I tried live streaming and it worked out pretty well. 

What’s your favorite game?

Right now? Probably Counter Strike and Arena of Valor

Which video game villain do you most relate to?

The Joker.

What PC/console game should come to mobile?

League of Legends mobile but that’s already happening, so I’m excited!

How does the Red Magic 3 stack up against other smartphones you have used?

Definitely the best phone to date, especially for the type of games that I play. Unlike other phones I’ve used, the Red Magic 3 can run everything on the highest settings.

“Hydration is key!”

How do you prepare for a stream? And what must-have items do you keep with you when streaming? 

I always make sure I am prepped with enough energy to at least play the game and talk. I always have my water bottle right next to me because hydration is key!

What was your first experience with video games?

I first played Mario vs. Donkey Kong on GameBoy when I was a kid. 

Later, fell in love with mobile gaming through games like Modern Combat Sandstorm and Battlefield 2.

What’s your favorite video game?

My favorite video game of all time is Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, simply because I enjoy watching it and have spent so much time involved in it.

Where do you think mobile gaming sits in the wider gaming world?

Mobile gaming plays a huge part in the development of gaming, since there are way more people that have phones and tablets than computers and consoles. 

How does the Red Magic 3 stack up against other smartphones you have used?

I love the 90hz refresh rate screen and the physical fan that keeps the device cool.
