Crimsix is best known for being a two-time World Champion and part of two of the biggest dynasties in the esport's history - compLexity and OpTic Gaming.
Originally starting out in Halo: Reach, Crimsix transitioned to Call of Duty during Black Ops 2. He is also currently the winningest player in Call of Duty history, with 32 major tournament wins and has earned almost $800,000 in prize money.

Black Ops 2
Crimsix has competed in online Call of Duty since COD4 and his stint in Halo: Reach did not produce the success he desired.
He quickly noticed the rising popularity in Call of Duty events and decided to take it more seriously.
His first venture was a success, teaming with ACHES, TeePee and FEARS under compLexity, they placed first in the Machinima Frag Cup IV.
The team's first offline event saw them finish second at UMG Chicago 2012. They replaced FEARS with TuQuick for the MLG Winter Championship and COD Champs 2013, where they finished fourth in both competitions.
The next change saw TuQuick make way for Clayster, starting the compLexity dynasty.
The first big event was the MLG Spring Championship 2013, where the current World Champions Impact were dethroned, with compLexity finishing first.
The "Impact Killers" started one of the most dominant dynasties in Call of Duty esports history - Crimsix and his team went on to win 6 championships that season.
The team went on to win the first event of the year before Clayster was dropped due to issues within the team and added Karma to the lineup.
The team won UMG Philadelphia before coming second at the US Regional Final, ending a five tournament winning streak.
They soon bounced back to win the next three tournaments, including COD Champs 2014; securing Crimsix's first World Championship.
The compLexity squad was then bought by Evil Geniuses, where they started to go through a dry patch, only winning the MLG Anaheim International Playoffs in the next four tournaments.
After Gfinity 3, Karma left the team due to internal conflict and was traded with FaZe Dedo.
The team won the final event of the year, ESWC 2014, before disbanding.
Advanced Warfare was undoubtedly the most successful year for OpTic and Crimsix as they claimed nine titles during the season; a personal best for the organisation and himself.
The team parted ways with Clayster and ProoFy in order to pick up Crimsix and FormaL. They dominated the competition, winning 3/4 tournaments before champs. However, it didn't go to plan once COD Champs 2015 came around, as they placed seventh.
It was at this point that NaDeSHoT decided to retire and the team acquired Karma; Scump was promoted to captain.
With this change, the team won six titles (including the World Finals) and placed second on three other occasions. Crimsix ended the year as the most winningest player in Call of Duty history; a record that still stands today.
Black Ops 3
The team made no roster changes and continued to dominate in Black Ops 3. Again they acquired five titles in various regions including North America, Europe and Australia.
Despite another dominant year and coming into COD Champs 2016 as favourites, they again fell short, placing in the top eight.
Despite plenty of rumours about roster changes, the team continued to squad up heading into the final jetpack Call of Duty.
It wasn't a glorious start, finishing top six at Las Vegas and second at Atlanta, but they were quickly back on track as they went on to win back-to-back championships at Dallas and Paris.
It was a rocky road after that, a fourth-place finish at the Pro League Stage 1 playoffs and a top-eight at Anaheim left many wondering if their time had come.
Nevertheless, the team continued on as they placed first at the Stage 2 playoffs. But the real tournament began two weeks later at COD Champs 2017.
OpTic entered as the favourites, sweeping their group 3-0. It was looking like their year until the eClassico arrived in the winners final against Envy; they were sent to the lower bracket.
A quick 3-0 on Luminosity meant they were back for revenge in the Grand Final, beating Envy 3-1 and 3-0 to win COD Champs.
After such a high, it was no surprise that the team would stick together for the next iteration of COD, as the franchise returned to boots on the ground.
A promising 3rd place at the first event in Dallas gave the impression that another successful year was ahead. However, it wasn't meant to be and the best the team could manage was second at the Pro League Stage 1 playoffs.
Seattle was the final nail in the coffin, their top sixteen placement spelt time for change - Karma was benched and FormaL left for Luminosity to make way for Octane and Methodz.
Despite the change, it didn't work out overall as they fell to an all-time low with a top twenty-four placing at COD Champs 2018.
Black Ops 4
The fourth instalment of the Black Ops franchise looked to be a return to form for OpTic. Karma was brought back into the team, as well as replacing Octane and Methodz with Dashy and TJHaly.
The first place at Las Vegas looked like the jump start OpTic needed to get back to winning ways. However, they were quickly brought back down to earth as the team lacked practice and became overconfident - finishing top twelve at Fort Worth.
It was third place for the Greenwall at both London and Anaheim and finished up the regular season top of their pro league group.
Top eight was all that they could manage at the Pro League playoffs, but it didn't hinder their spirits as they looked unstoppable at COD Champs 2019. Unfortunately, two quickfire losses to eUnited and 100 Thieves in the final stages of the competition left them with a third-place finish once again.
