NEO is an American smasher and has spent time in numerous crews including USB, H2YL, and Team Ben.

Most notably, NEO was considered to be the best Roy player before retiring from Melee, with results that current Roy players have yet to match, having multiple Top 8 finishes at national tournaments. He managed to beat Ken in Roy dittos, claiming the red costume in the process. However, NEO's top tiers were also a force to be reckoned with, posing a threat to the nation's best when he was in his prime.

NEO has been competing in Brawl since its release in 2008 and as of 2013, continues to play at a high level.

NEO is also very skilled at the game, maining Marth. He is known for his calculated and patient Marth style. He is usually considered the best Marth in the USA outside of mikeHAZE.

NEO is currently ranked 3rd and 7th on the MD/VA Brawl Power Rankings and MD/VA/DE Smash 4 Power Rankings, respectively.
