Hello Waypoint, my names Shawn. Started playing at 6 years old with Halo: Combat Evolved on the original Xbox but never played online from Halo 3 onward. Grew up real fast but also learned valuable things from Halo both the game and online experience driving me to enter the IT industry with a core in Networking, Cyber Security and Cloud computing. Investing in cryptocurrencies and starting a business around my favorite game. Love Halo and always up to party up!
Grew up playing Halo around the USMC on a military base overseas. My dad brought home an Original Xbox that was JTAG/RGH'd from the local R&D tech guys (Sorry Microsoft) and I played days on end. USO hosted events, running tournaments and I was always the youngest to play and the youngest to win. Online I was a warrior, an average slayer focused aggressive pushing leading shots god to only punished by people who actually competed in MLG or booters boosting accounts to 50 to sell later.
I've met many faces and people from The LAN Network to P5 Studios. I competed in MLG Gamebattles, ESL ladders before and HCS Tournaments now just to see my name on the top. My highest placements on LAN were semi-finalist podiums in the Japan FPS Championships for Halo: The Master Chief Collection in 2014 and Halo 5: Guardians in 2016. I enjoy competitive Halo as much as I do the story telling campaign. Big supporter of rising pros and watching HCS, living through other people reaching their Esports dreams. Bringing teams to events and going to them for myself.
Your favorite Spook in the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) Halo role playing forum & gaming community (or clan) based on the illustrated UNSC Office of Naval Intelligence of the Halo universe. I run the Esports division known as Tier 1 (previously Operator Esports) and its secondary counterpart for rising competitive players Tier 2. We are sponsored by Barrel House Coffee Co. and many other local companies in Atlanta, GA holding and supporting both LAN/online tournaments where we can. You can find me in pictures of the Microsoft Stores! I set up scrimmages too for our teams so DM for a match against one of our teams, we have all skill levels and promise not to ego you ☆
I'm also an active PC gamer, I've hosted dedicated servers through VPN tunneling software like XBConnect or XLink Kai for Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2 and worked with the Garry's mod Halo communities as an administrator spinning up cloud instances for gaming. Recently getting into Arma 3 and Sins of the Prophet mods. Always a fan of innovative solutions around Halo, I hope to see more cool community creations from Discord bot developers and beyond.
Recently started streaming! Check me out on Twitch, Mixer or Youtube for a perspective on everything I do and funny tidbits.
