Akaadian was born on December 26, 1996 in the United States. Having spent 3 years of his career in the Challenger scene, he eventually got his shot in the NA LCS as the jungler for Echo Fox in 2017. Exploding onto the scene and having an exceptionally high First Blood percentage, Akaadian quickly gained a lot of fans. Although Echo Fox's team results weren't great and Akaadian has slowed down a little bit, he has managed to find a new and stable spot on OpTic Gaming, following the franchising of the NA LCS.
Akaadian joined Maelstrom in May 2015 and played with them in the NACS Summer Qualifier for the second round, replacing Cat. The team lost to CLG Black and were eliminated from the tournament; soon after, they disbanded. Akaadian returned to play in the summer season with Winterfox, replacing top laner Avalon partway through their season. The team won their first game with Akaadian starting, breaking a 6-game losing streak, but they lost the remainder of their games and finished in last place with a 1-9 record.
Akaadian was brought onto Team Liquid Academy after the second week of the NACS spring season, replacing Zary who had himself replaced IWDominate after his retirement from League and temporary substitution for Liquid Academy when former starting jungler Dardoch was moved to the main Team Liquid team. Liquid Academy finished in fourth place after winning an automatic tiebreaker with Dream Team and moved onto the playoffs, where they were eliminated in the first round by Apex Gaming. After the split ended, Team Liquid Academy rebuilt their roster, and Akaadian left, joining Dream Team.
- Played water polo in high school.
- Name comes from the movie 300, where a character yells "Akadians, Now!" he misspelled it though and decided to just keep it.
