Since he became an active player in 2010, TheViper has won more tournaments than any other AoE2 player in history and is wildly regarded as one of the most successful AoE2 players of all time. His father Svein «_PkZ_» Larsen founded the website AoEZone in 2008, and is himself an active member of the AoE2 community.

In May 2019 TheViper moved to Leipzig in Germany where he is currently living with his German girlfriend Debbie.
