Biography[]

2021 Season[]

Danny's first team was the amateur organization Zenith Esports, which he joined at the beginning of the season and with whom he played using the ID Dan. After strong performances in RCL Season 10 and UPL 2020 Fall, the entire Zenith roster was acquired by Evil Geniuses and renamed to Evil Geniuses Prodigies. At this time, Dan renamed to Shiro. The team played in the LCS Proving Grounds 2021 Spring and finished 5-6th, with Shiro being a standout performer. Although only 17 and having never played in Academy, Shiro was promoted to Evil Geniuses' LCS squad to replace Deftly for the Summer Split. Upon his promotion, he renamed again, this time to Danny.
