Professional Career[edit]

DaZeD got his start in CS during his tenure on various teams in Counter-Strike: Source. Most notably, DaZeD took at top 3 finish under the Check Six banner with his former teammate steel at ESWC 2011.

When he switched over to CS:GO, he rose to prominence when his Area 51 roster finished third place in the first major CS:GO event, ESWC 2012. With Area 51, he won his first ESEA title. [1]

The Area 51 roster left the organisation, and joined 4Nothing, which later merged with Quantic Gaming. The roster eventually broke apart due to internal struggles. [2]

The next step of DaZeD's career was to join the Denial eSports roster. [3] This team eventually left their sponsor, and joined up with Team iBUYPOWER.[4] With the iBUYPOWER roster, DaZeD picked up two more ESEA titles in Season 15 and 16 respectively. [5]
