'Arcana" is a Project M player from Colorado that also plays SSB4 casually. In Project M he is a highly regarded Zero Suit Samus main and is considered by many to be one of the best ZSS players in the world.

Arcana has a long-standing history with the Super Smash Bros. series and the Colorado Smash community he is a part of. He officially became a Smasher in 2003 with Smash Bros. Melee under the tag XYZ as a Sheik player before moving on to Smash Bros. Brawl in 2008 when he then took up the tag Level~Zero. In Brawl he gained more renown as he became more adamant about he series, becoming more active and all around more skilled. For a time he was Power Ranked in Brawl in Colorado where he mained Luigi and Fox.

Sometime around 2011 he relatively fell out of Smash for a brief while until 2014 when his drive was rekindled when he began playing Project M. He started out in PM version 3.0 and took up the tag Arcana (a nod to the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series) where he picked up Mr. Game & Watch as his first initial main until switching over to Zero Suit Samus out of his personal nostalgic fondness for the Metroid franchise (though still retaining G&W as a secondary). He has expressed that the reason for why he mains Zero Suit Samus over Samus is because he has difficulty grasping Samus' slower, campier, ground-based meta.

He was previously ranked 1st on the Colorado Power Rankings for Project M and is all-around one of Colorado's most notable and revered Smashers.

He took a set off of Mew2King at MVG Revelations 2 and double elminated Kycse at Revelation 2016.
