Monish was a successful esports player in India having represented Team India in the Overwatch World-Cup 2019 as well as various championships in both Overwatch and PUBG. After completing his Bachelor of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in India, he decided to follow his passion and in order to forge a career in the esports industry; this time in a management role.

Lastly, all of this wouldn't be possible if not for Bond University's continuous efforts in involving themselves and growing the esports ecosystem."
