So now that you've spent a day in LA, do you think you'd ever want to move out here?

To be honest with you, I'd only do it if I had to. I really do enjoy my lifestyle in the suburbs. No traffic, less people, and more peaceful. I'm not the type of person who likes to go out on the weekends so the city really wouldn't do me any good in that aspect. I can see myself having to move somewhere down the line in my gaming career, but for right now, I'm happy where I am.

It seems like you're not a real big fan of tight jeans and tank tops. What's more your style?

I think that's my biggest problem, I don't have much style, haha! I like to throw on a T-Shirt and some jeans and then I'm good to go. I don't know, I think I'm just a basic and bland guy who really likes playing video games competitively! Maybe I'll grow into something as I get older, but for now, I'm just plain old Nadeshot with no style at all.

Better food, Chicago or LA?

Chicago, for sure! I know LA has a lot of variety with their restaurants and things, but you can't beat Chicago style pizza and hot dogs. Besides that though, like I said earlier, I'm extremely basic. When it comes to food, it gets worse. I'm an extremely picky eater so LA just doesn't suit me!

Since you've met so many people online, do you feel you could pretty much go anywhere in the US and know someone?

For the most part, that's how it seems. I'm so blessed to have met such awesome people throughout my gaming career, it's really just amazing. I've met people in England, LA, Rhode Island, Orlando, and everywhere in between. It really is wild how all of this has come from gaming.
