Darryl grew up in Jacksonville, FL and first started gaming on systems many of you have probably never even heard of before. He was a fanatic for games like Tecmo Super Bowl, Marvel vs Capcom 2, and Daytona USA. Some of his earliest gaming consoles included NES and Atari but his true passion for gaming started and ended at an arcade called Tilt.
Darryl would race home from school, and grab as many quarters as he could to hit the Tilt arcade in Jacksonville. He told me his mission was always to play as long as he could with the quarters he had, and try to get his name on the glorified leader-board. After drinking countless cold sodas, which he says always had more ice than soda, he soon managed to solidify his name as the top scorer on most of the games in the arcade.
Eventually he moved on from the arcade, but his life only grew more interesting from there. He worked at Disney World as a professional roller blader in the Tarzan Rocks live show, and even represented America in the 2004 Asian XGames for roller blading in Seoul Korea.
After hanging his skates up, he started a family back in Jacksonville and raised three kids. He made a name for himself as a landscape photographer, and would travel across the U.S. shooting incredible shots from our nation’s greatest National Parks. His goal was to capture as many beautiful places in the U.S. as he could so he could bring the photos back to his grandmother Evelyn.
Darryl’s grandmother Evelyn was wheel-chair bound with sickle cell anemia, so he was determined to help her see the world through his photography. And he did just that.
It was on the road that Darryl came up with his idea to start working on Evelyn’s Dream – a restored school bus he would use to travel the U.S. capturing scenery and gaming. Darryl poured his heart and soul into combining his love for photography and gaming by taking it on the road.
Since then, he’s become a world-class gamer. He has been selected by Forza Motorsports in the Community Spotlight to represent them in gaming. His gaming streams are known for there higher energy, positivity, and kid friendly nature.
He is a top 1% gamer in racing games like Forza Horizon 4, but also enjoys playing other games like Call of Duty, World of Warcraft and Grand Theft Auto. He was attracted to Blockchain Badlands for its belief in the community, and focus on mentoring gamers. He wants everyone to they become better and more successful in gaming no matter how old they are.
He is determined to help more people realize their dreams of becoming a professional gamer and/or streamer.
