Crush is a semi-retired SSBM Fox player from Massachusetts, and is still considered the best player in New England. Crush was formerly ranked 1st on both the Massachusetts Melee and New England Melee Power Rankings, and is ranked 17th on the 2018 MPGR. He has wins over top players such as Plup, aMSa, Zain, SFAT, S2J, Lucky, HugS, Swedish Delight, PewPewU, and Westballz.
Crush quietly went on an unannounced hiatus from Melee in 2018, attending his last event of the year on June 5th, 2018; he had also registered for CEO 2018, but did not attend. Around this time, on June 28th, 2018, he deleted his Twitter account without any prior notice, cutting off most communication with the Melee community. Crush gave no indication as to why he left the scene, but it is speculated that he wanted to focus on college, or that he had achieved his goals within Melee.
Over a year after his hiatus began, in June of 2019, Crush entered two tournaments, a Boston weekly under the tag "Bagheera" on June 11th, and another larger tournament in New Hampshire under the tag "Kimba" on June 15th. He won both events (the latter of which had Hax, 2saint, and Slox in attendance) but he has not entered any tournaments since, and Crush never reactivated his Twitter account.
