StarCraft II player known as HuK. His play is characterized by its aggressiveness and unpredictability, which helped him become the first player to win two Major League Gaming events.
He started playing StarCraft: Brood War in 2010, eventually moving to StarCraft II when it was released. He won his first competition that same year.
He spent his childhood getting into trouble and had a stint in juvenile hall by the time he was 16. This prompted his dad to move the family to Canada.
He has a brother named Scott. He grew up in St. Petersburg, but later moved to Ontario and has dual citizenship.
He teamed up with Jang Min-chul in 2015 to win the Red Bull Battle Grounds.
