I guess you start these things off with your “in” to Barstool? Well, I started unofficially working with Barstool during the end of my college career a couple years ago. During that time I had just transferred from Lackawanna Junior College to a small D1 FCS school you’ve probably never heard of.
Behind the scenes I transitioned to an intern position where I worked from home. Then I got a job offer from Dave as a producer this past September, but that role wasn’t what I ultimately wanted to do. There was 0 passion involved in that project, it was just doing well and it was clearly my 'in.' For about 6-7 months I met with Big Cat and showed him everything I was doing behind the scenes, he recognized my work ethic and I began to pitch him all the ideas I had for where Barstool Gametime could go. He went to Dave and vouched for me to be given a role as “talent”. Fast forward to about a week before quarantine hits. Dave gives me the green light and I start streaming on Twitch.
My mentality is to put out the kind of content Gametime has never seen before.
Gaming has been my first love forever. It was never football, it was never girls, it was never partying, I did all of those things but they always came second to hearing that PlayStation beep. In the past 5 or 6 years I’ve played and been in the top 1% of Destiny, Overwatch, Fortnite, Apex, and now Warzone. For the vast majority of my gaming career I’ve been the best player in my circle. But then I was introduced to some high level players like Jkap, Enable, and the GM of Optic, MudDawg. I quickly realized, compared to them, I am the common gamer. Playing with people who are substantially better than me was great for developing my CoD game, as you can see from the video above where we dropped 81 kills to win an Optic kill race.
I’d like to say I’m the #1 gamer at Barstool but I’ll let the tape talk. I’ll be live tonight running in the Optic Gaming HOTDROPZ with Jkap, Muddawg, and Christian Kirk. It's a Warzone event where the chat picks where we drop. Tune in, guaranteed to be a show.
