Thor is a smasher from Minnesota, considered to be one of the state's best overall Smash players. He mains Link in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Project M, Pikachu in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Cloud and Pikachu in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and Cloud in Ultimate.

After beginning playing smash competitively as a high schooler in 2013, Thor has attended multiple different universities across the United States while pursuing a postgraduate degree. This has led him to be ranked across three different Smash titles and Project M not only in his home state of Minnesota, but also in Arizona, as well as having multiple first place finishes at the House of Paign tournament series in Illinois.

He notably placed 4th at Ascension IX and defeated BassMage, Junior Z, Silver, and JumboJack in the process. Other notable wins outside of Ultimate include Zamu and Nakamaman in Melee, Amanze and Connor in Project M and yeti and Anonymous Moniker in Smash 4.
