PPMD, formerly known as Dr. PeePee, is a top professional Melee player who mains Marth and Falco. He is Twitch's older brother. His smasher tag was known as "Dr. PeePee" until mid-2014, when he became sponsored by eSports organization Evil Geniuses and changed his tag to "PPMD". PPMD is currently ranked at the 0 position on the North Carolina Melee Power Rankings and 6th on the 2015 SSBMRank, and was formerly ranked 7th on the North Carolina Brawl Rankings. He teams with LoZR, the 4th best player in North Carolina; the duo have shown to be powerful with excellent teamwork. PPMD has also recently been the only Falco player that can beat Hungrybox's Jigglypuff (as Mango usually uses Fox against Hungrybox and formerly did Jigglypuff dittos). He is considered to be one of the top six players in the world; he is widely viewed as one of the top Falco players in the world, and is also considered one of the best Marth players in the world, alongside Mew2King, having taken sets off of Armada, Mew2King, and Leffen and winning Apex 2015 predominantly using Marth.
PPMD started playing competitively in 2007 as a Mario main before his transition to Falco and Marth. He became famous in the Smash scene for his performance at Revival of Melee 2 in 2010, where his Falco placed higher than Mango's. He won his first national at Revival of Melee 3, and later won Pound V as well, winning two sets against Armada in grand finals. Early in his career he frequently teamed with Everlasting Yayhuzz and LOZR in the teams known as "Catfish". At Apex 2012, he defeated several notable smashers such as Silent Wolf, SFAT, and Wobbles, before losing to Armada and then being eliminated by Javi 0-2 in losers' quarters, placing 5th overall. He also placed 1st at Zenith 2012, winning two sets against Mew2King in grand finals, 2nd at the European tournament Smashers' Reunion: Melee Grande, taking a set off of Armada in grand finals before losing an extremely close second set 3-4, and 1st at Kings of Cali, defeating Mango in two sets of grand finals.
At Apex 2013, PPMD placed 2nd, losing to Armada 0-3 in winners' finals and then winning the first set of grand finals against him 3-2, but once again losing the second set, 1-3. Starting with Tipped Off 9 in late 2013, PPMD had a dominant period where he managed to win every tournament he entered for half a year; he won Apex 2014 without dropping a set, defeating aMSa 2-0 to make into the top 8, then defeating Mango 3-1 in winners' semis, and Mew2King 3-0 and 3-1 in winners' finals and grand finals, respectively (including two 4-stocks against Mew2King, with one being a Marth ditto on Final Destination during the second game of winners' finals).
PPMD was picked up by professional eSports organization Evil Geniuses on May 9th, 2014, and is currently sponsored by them. Around the time of his sponsorship he changed his tag from Dr. PeePee to PPMD.
PPMD later won SKTAR 3, defeating Armada 2-1 in winners' semis, Mango 3-1 in winners' finals, and Mew2King 3-1 once again in grand finals (with another 4-stock in the final game). Because of winning SKTAR 3, PPMD successfully qualified for the championship bracket at MLG Anaheim 2014.
At MLG Anaheim 2014, PPMD only lost one set in his pool, to Leffen 2-3. He was seeded in winners' semis in the championship bracket, where he lost to Mango 2-3. He then eliminated Leffen 3-1 in losers' quarters, but was eliminated by Mew2King 2-3 in losers' semis, placing 4th overall. Three weeks later, at EVO 2014, PPMD made it to the finals of the winners' quarters pool against Hungrybox, but lost 1-2. He defeated PewPewU 2-0 in losers' bracket to make it into the top 8, where he eliminated Fly Amanita 2-1 and Mew2King 2-0 before being eliminated by Armada 0-2, placing 4th overall.
PPMD was also invited to participate in the E3 2014-held Super Smash Bros. Invitational tournament to play Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. He used Fox in the tournament, and won the Fan-Favorite Tournament after being eliminated in the quarterfinals.
Despite being one of the best Melee players of all time, PPMD is known for rarely going to tournaments (outside of small NC locals) - he has recently only traveled to the largest tournaments, such as Apex 2014, MLG Anaheim 2014, and EVO 2014. PPMD has revealed that this is mainly due to personal issues, specifically depression.  Despite his inactivity, he still managed to claim 1st place at Apex 2015, defeating Armada 3-2 in winners' semis, and Leffen 3-2 in winners' finals. In grand finals, he lost the first set to Armada 2-3, but defeated him in the second set 3-0 to win the tournament. He did not attend a single event afterward until EVO 2015, although he had planned on attending I'm Not Yelling! and some other tournaments. At EVO he finished 3rd after being eliminated by Hungrybox. At Get Smashed at the Foundry #69 PPMD won, playing mostly Mario, Fox, and Falcon.
PPMD has developed a mildly aggressive play-style that is very conservative and methodical compared to other top players. Although his technique is very refined and is considered one of the best players on both of his main characters, PPMD is not known for his technical prowess as much as other top players such as Westballz and Mew2King. Instead PPMD is known mainly for his strong mental game and extremely threatening dash dance that separates him from other top players. PPMD is one of the few melee pros who almost never consciously makes a sub-par choice in a match in an attempt to gain advantage or potentially disrespect his opponent, even when greatly ahead in a game. Other players note that PPMD was very hard on himself after a loss or making a mistake, not unlike several other top players. However, after having issues with depression, PPMD has lately changed his mindset to what he describes as 'acceptance'. In a recent interview, PPMD explains that his lack of energy caused by his depression is his main reason for picking up Marth for tournament in recent years. He feels that Marth better suits his play style when he has low energy. Regardless, PPMD frequently plays both characters in tournament, and still plays fairly aggressive most of the time.
