Bio - Greetings Champions!
My name is Alex “Nef” Blankenship (Nef is short for Nefarious). I am a 26 year old, visually disabled, dog loving Hearthstone Twitch streamer. I’ve been playing online games since I was 8 years old, starting with Starcraft: Brood War. Some of the other games that I have played competitively and casually besides Hearthstone include Runescape, World of Warcraft and CounterStrike: Global Offensive. I consider myself a competitive-minded player, and because of my visual disability I generally aim 90% of my competitive energy into Hearthstone (one of the only “even playing fields” for me gaming wise). As of this writing (April 2018), I have been streaming for 4 months, at 40-60 hours per week. It has been an absolute blast, and I feel very much that I’ve found what I want to do with my life on Twitch. That being said, I am always looking for more ways to interact with this amazing community, and that’s where United Hearthstone League comes in.
I discovered the UHL in January of this year. I had so much fun interacting with the community members, players and the organizers involved, that I knew I would love to be a part of their team at some point if the opportunity arose. When they announced that they were bringing on content creators for season 2, I knew I had to submit my application right away. I am so happy that they were able to find a fit for me within the org, and I am looking forward to hearing everyone’s feedback on the content I am a part of creating. My number one priority for this opportunity is to make the best content possible, and to improve as an online entertainer. I am an open book when it comes to feedback on any project I am involved in, and if anyone has ideas / suggestions: please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Lastly I just want to thank everyone involved for giving me a chance to prove myself here! The year of the Raven is looking to be the most exciting yet, not just for Hearthstone but this amazing league as well!
GLHF Everyone! 😊
