Streamer for the people joins Team Online
I'm on Team Online? Somebody please wake me up.
In all seriousness I've been looking forward to this for such a long time and it's an absolute dream come true! When I first got into poker I knew that I was going to shuffle between player/broadcaster/ambassador, and it's really flattering that PokerStars sees value in me and my content and has brought me on board.
I'm a firm believer that surrounding yourself with smarter and more successful people is a huge key to improving yourself and your life. There are so many people that I've idolized in this group and now that I get to interact with them and be almost an apprentice of sorts is so beneficial for me.

I'm a streamer for the people! We've documented a lot of high moments but also the growing pains as I try to transition from a live to online player. I have fun when I play online poker! I know, shocking concept. I celebrate when I hit my running flush, and yell in disgust when my aces are cracked. The average poker player relates to my emotions as I'm not a robot behind my computer screen and neither are they!
The Team Online group has been really welcoming! I actually miss-click folded aces pre-flop on my stream yesterday during my first day for Team Online and the messages started piling in. Those guys are not going to let that one go for a while. It's an extremely diverse group representing a lot of different people in the poker industry. It's clear there is a special bond between team members and I'm excited to get in there and start picking some brains.
The future? My girlfriend is graduating this weekend from post secondary school and then I'm joining Jason Somerville and other Team Online members at Run It Up Reno. After that it's time to get to work! I'm excited improve my poker game and continue the growth of my Twitch and YouTube channels.
The future is bright and it's amazing to have this group of people and PokerStars behind me. I had a lot of supportive people in my corner before but this takes it to a whole new level!
