Around 2015, he was hired by Major League Gaming (MLG) as a cameraman during the MLG World Finals. The next year, MLG asked him to fill in as a commentator for a World of Warcraft tournament. After that, he was also asked to commentate for a Hearthstone tournament and later went on to commentate for a number of events from 2016 to 2019. However, he was fired from MLG in 2019 after he made critical comments about Blizzard, the creator of World of Warcraft.
