He was one of the founding members of the legendary mTw.dk, one of the most dominant Counter-Strike teams in history. He retired as teams started transitioning over to Global Offensive. He joined Team Dignitas as a coach in July 2015 before returning to active play for mTw.  After an unsuccessful return as a player, he joined Team Questionmark as a coach. He founded Astralis with the rest of the players in January 2016, and has since then helped them to become one of the greatest teams in Global Offensive.
