My name is Shannon Scotten, otherwise known as SUNSfan.
I am a lifelong fan of the Phoenix Suns, player of beta 1 Counter-Strike, middle school basketball sharpshooter, and most famously, CAL Firearms champion. Unfortunately, my competitive gaming career went about as far as the Suns have recently in the playoffs and after years of gaming I realized I couldn’t keep up with all the kids anymore.
After moving away from playing, I focused on casting and helped popularize a Youtube channel called DotaCinema, which continues to thrive with over 1.4 million subscribers.
In 2015, I co-founded Digital Chaos (now known as Chaos Esports Club), a professional esports organization. Over the year and a half that I was with them, we placed 1st at ESL One Genting ($125,000) and 2nd at The International 6 ($3.4 million).
I am also a co-founding member of Moonduck Studios. We organize and cover tournaments in the Dota 2 space. We are well known for our innovative game modes and fun demeanor. In 2018 we ran Captains Draft 4, the only U.S.-based Dota 2 LAN in the DPC circuit, as well as Midas Mode - a massively successful online tournament.
Besides working on tournaments and content creation, I have been hired as a consultant by various non-endemic companies and NBA teams, helping them understand the esports environment. I also put out an esports podcast every week and live-stream when the time permits.
Finally, and most importantly, I love cats.
