By August 2017 Max aka Orange Ocelot had changed the face of Pokemon esports in the region forever.
Ranked number six in Oceania in VGC Pokemon, Max qualified and crowdfunded his way to compete a the World Championships in Anaheim, truly announcing himself to the esports world.
In the six months since his historic achievement, Max, now affectionately known as the gaming industry’s “little brother”, has established his brand further, quickly gaining popularity on social media and YouTube as the region’s youngest live streamer. He creates PG gaming content that aims to bring in a wider audience of his generation, with his success recognised by a range of brands including AK Racing and Cloth Armoury.
In addition to his youngest streamer title, Max is also the youngest contracted / sponsored gamer in Australia with Oracle Empyre and launched his own branded apparel line, which would sell out within two-weeks of orders opening.
At only 9-years of age, with the support of his parents, Max plans to dedicate his life to establishing himself as a professional esports athlete, with a move to Overwatch set for the future. Already ahead of the curve, Max has the backing of his mother Jacqueline – a serial entrepreneur and marketing professional, who is teaching him how to brand and market himself, how to create content (Written / social / video) and conduct himself appropriately online and in person to ensure his personal image is secure.
Already a household name to some, Max really is one to watch.
