Dope is a top level Falco player, and a part of the ambiguously defined Michigan Crew. Ranked 9th on the final Smash Panel Power Rankings near the end of 2006.

Dope was one of the elite five players in the Midwest, also including Tink, Drephen, Vidjogamer, and Darkrain, that dominated the Midwest from mid-2005 to around 2007. The players were so close in standing that rarely will any of them win consecutive tournaments, often knocking each other out.

Dope overcame a tough 2006 Midwest Circuit beginning, placing 9th and 17th in the first two events, to place 1st at Show Me Your Moves 6 and 2nd at Flame of Bowser 5 and rise in the Circuit rankings to second. In the Midwest Power Rankings, he had managed to maintain his number 1 ranking until the panel became inactive in Melee. He played in Brawl tournaments for a bit. In 2012 Dope began playing in a few Michigan Melee tournaments again. He was ranked 7th on the Spring 2016 Southern Louisiana Power Rankings. He has since left Louisiana.
