See you around, King of Nordic

It’s been awhile, so figured I’d jot down a quick update about the hectic happenings in my life of recent.

I’ve been involved with a media company in Sweden called ESEN Studio, which produces a weekly CSGO show called King of Nordic. I’ve work there about a year, doing everything from videos (such as this play of the week), broadcast packages, logos, web design, and more. The coolest aspect was definitely the chance to be a commentator for CS:GO. Every week I’d hop on and provide energic, yet on-point analysis and play-by-play of the game. It was pretty exciting.

Sadly, things did not work out with ESEN, and I’m no longer working on that project. It was really unfortunate in the timing, too. I was supposed to fly out in early July to spend a week hosting a gaming LAN event. Would have been the first time I’ve been in that position in over four years. The last event I attended (to produce/host) was QuakeCon in 2012.

And while that ship has sailed, the burn to continue working in esports and media projects continues. I’ll likely try to start up something in the next few months, as I’ve made a lot of awesome people who also want to commentate Counter-Strike. We’ll see. Maybe I’ll just make some sick frag videos (haha), or continue work on the CSGO map I’ve been working on.

I’ve got a lot of other exciting things in the works, including some developments with my current gig at DOJO MADNESS. We’re working on some awesome tools for CSGO Broadcasting with a really tight team — I’ll share some news about that in the coming week.

In the meantime, if anyone is looking for CSGO analysis or commentary talent, feel free to reach out.

Cheers, Matt
