Wes is a Super Smash Bros. Melee Samus player from the Tristate region. In the "golden age" of Melee, he was widely considered to be one of the best Samus players in the country. He was often referred to as the "Father of Samus," inventing many of tactics which are still used today.

Wes and his crew, Deadly Alliance, proved to be nearly untouchable in New York until the members of H2YL began hosting and attending tournaments. He was a top competitor during the 2003-2006 era, placing high in tournaments with a character that was considered to be mid-tier character at the time. In the modern Melee metagame, Wes has been less prolific in attending tournaments, but still has relatively strong showings in attended tournaments.

Wes was interviewed for the competitive Smash documentary, The Smash Brothers, appearing in several episodes. He extensively covered the origins of crew rivalries in the first episode and gave his input on certain controversial issues that had come up within the community during his time with the game. Several gameplay clips of him were also shown, primarily in the two West Coast vs. East Coast crew battles that were featured.
