Ginger is a Falco main who is currently ranked 2nd on the Michigan Melee Power Rankings and 26th on the SSBMRank 2023. He has been competing in tournaments since 2003 and first gained national recognition after unexpectedly defeating Druggedfox at The Big House 5 in Winner's Semis of Round 1 Pools. He has also eliminated Westballz at The Big House 7 and defeated Axe at Full Bloom 4. After his breakout performances in 2017, Ginger became an active Twitch streamer and is known for playing high level Anther's Ladder and later Project Slippi Ranked matches and for his catchphrase "zoinks" on stream. He has also been nicknamed the "SFAT of Falco" due to his extremely orthodox play style.

On February 25th, 2019, Ginger announced that he parted ways with Balance Gaming.[1] He later signed with Thunder Gaming on August 14th, 2019, becoming their first Melee player and second Smash player overall (after MVD).[2], before leaving the team on January 13th, 2020. On February 7th, 2021, Ginger signed with Luminosity Gaming.[3]

  • On September 10th, 2021, a tweet from sponsor Luminosity (which advertised his "Ginger's Smurf Show" netplay series) depicted a Fortnite-esque render of Ginger alongside a Navy sponsorship.[4] The nature of the sponsorship, combined with the "WarHero" pose, have led to Ginger becoming the basis of a running gag depicting him as a war veteran.
