As a teenager he learned how to catfish guys and convince them to give him free game stuff on the PC by playing as a girl and doing a woman's voice. As he got older he perfected that scam, and when guys from long-term scams started offering to mail him real stuff or send real money, he opened a post office box under his female alter-ego and he makes his living scamming people. He doesn't have a problem being social but he doesn't like people, even though he makes friends very easily. He is smart and graduated high school and college early, but just wants to be happy and has nothing to prove so he lives his simple life.
