Method Gaming

I'm a former professional Poker player and talent agent with a life-long passion for video games. As a teenager in the early 2000s, my dream was to play video games competitively for a living but the lack of opportunity in the space at that time made me go a different path.

In 2007 I joined the World of Warcraft raid guild Method and I continued to be an active member until the end of 2009. One year later I embarked on a mission to build Method as an organization.I created an infrastructure that over time developed Method from a World of Warcraft guild into a successful esports team. Today, Method is one of the most watched esports organizations in the World.
