Huynh is a long-time North American Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) player. He played on teams such as District 7, LiViD Gaming and Vision Gaming. Under the LiViD gaming banner he took Canadian LANs, such as WESG 2019 North America and DreamHack Canadian Championship. LiViD took second in both tournaments.
He retired from CS:GO in May 2020 to pursue a career in VALORANT. Ever since his transition, he has been on a steady stream of tournament wins with his first VALORANT organization, Gen. G. Their most significant achievement was taking the T1 x Nerd Street Gamers invitational the same month he joined. The team made it all the way to the VCT: 2021 North America Stage 1 Masters. They ultimately dropped to third place thanks to FaZe Clan.
