A warm welcome to Pocket_aces. A streamer, a Hearthstone player and an all around good guy. Learn more about Pocket_Aces on becoming an Ambassador for HypeHorizen.
Please give us a quick introduction.
My name is Sean, but a lot of people just call me Pocket. I started playing Hearthstone in September 2019, and have been in love with the game ever since. Shortly after that, I started streaming and the rest was history. But in my free time when I’m not streaming, I enjoy watching football (I played in college at Northwestern University), or playing music!
How did you first learn of HypeHorizen?
I first learned about HypeHorizen when Dmoney announced its launch on stream. I was so excited because I knew that with him and the other founders that were involved, it was going to be the beginning of something special. Since then I’ve seen all of the amazing additions they have made to the roster, and I’m just honored to be one of them.
What platform do you stream on and why?
I stream on Twitch mostly because it was the first place that really introduced me to the broader gaming community, and I had already met some pretty awesome people there by the time I decided to start streaming.
How did you get into gaming?
Overwatch was actually my first gaming love. I was instantly hooked from the moment I played. Eventually I started branching out to other Blizzard games and landed on Hearthstone.
Do you have a gaming idol, someone in Esports or gaming that you look up to?
TSM_Daequan was one of my biggest inspirations to start streaming. The way he cared about his community and constantly brought positivity into the world was so motivating. Also, as a person of color, I thought the success of his stream was an awesome contribution to inclusion and diversity in the gaming community.

What is the best part about streaming?
The community that you build. It’s amazing how Twitch chat can just make your whole day with a unique combination of positivity, entertainment, and some snarky jokes.
What’s your favorite quote?
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
– Robert Frost
How does being a streamer inspire you to do good?
Knowing that you have the ability to make somebody’s day just a little bit better by providing them with a supportive community or even just a quick laugh.
How does streaming and/or gaming make you a better student or worker?
There aren’t too many direct comparisons to my line of work, but I do think that balance is important in life. So having something that I enjoy and am passionate about like streaming is great to use as a release after a long day at the office.
What do you do when you’re not streaming?
Play music, watch football, play poker, and binge Netflix (I have the best recommendations if you’re ever in need)
Who inspires you? Have you ever met them in person? If not, who is it?
My mom inspires me every day. She’s the reason I am who I am, and continues to find new ways to impress me all the time. She’s an amazing woman and I still have a lot to learn from her.
