PPMD, formerly known as Dr. PeePee, is a top professional Melee player who mains Falco and Marth. 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 1st on the North Carolina Melee Power Rankings 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 the top Falco player in the world, and is also considered the best Marth player in the world as well (having taken sets off of Armada, Mew2King, and Leffen with Marth and predominantly using Marth to win Apex 2015).
PPMD became famous in the Smash scene for his performance at Revival of Melee 2, 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. 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.
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.
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 that gives him consistent results over other top players. PPMD's precise dash dancing and spacing also distinguishes him from other pros giving him a strong edge in neutral situations. PPMD almost never consciously makes a sub-par choice in a match in an attempt to gain advantage or potentially disrespect his opponent. According to PP, "acceptance" has defined his mental game which allows him to play without getting frustrated or flustered and stay focused on the game regardless of the outcome of a situation. This is visible in videos of his latter matches where he typically appears relaxed, even during a loss, where as in the past he would appear to be visibly upset upon losing or making a mistake. This, paired with his technical facility and experience, makes PPMD's play-style one of the most well-rounded among other melee pros.
