H1ghSky1 is the online alias of American professional video game player Patrick who is best known for playing the first-person shooter battle royale game 'Fortnite' developed by Epic Games. In March 2019, at age 13, he was recruited by famous e-sports and entertainment group 'FaZe Clan', becoming its youngest member. He is also one of the youngest professional gamers alongside British gamer Kyle Jackson, who was also 13 years old when he joined 'Team Secret'. H1ghSky1 is also a famous Twitch streamer who, prior to playing 'Fortnite', played other multiplayer shooting games such as 'PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' (PUBG) and 'Call of Duty'. He had over 107k followers on Twitch even before he joined the 'FaZe Clan' and was a partnered Twitch streamer as well. Since signing with the famous team, his follower count is skyrocketing steadily, and has already reached over 424K on the platform. As a member of the 'FaZe Clan', he will be working alongside successful Twitch streamers like Turner 'Tfue' Tenney and Dennis 'Cloak' Lepore.
Rise to Stardom
H1ghSky1 has been playing video games since he was a kid, and always wanted to talk to and play with others online. He got the opportunity via the Twitch streaming platform, on which he began regularly streaming his gameplay videos since June 2018, when he was only 12 years old. Despite his age, he very quickly earned several hundred followers who flocked to see his skilled execution of tricky moves in online games, particularly Epic's 'Fortnite'. Within a year, he established himself as one of the top players in the game who could go toe-to-toe with much older professional players. He had even become a partnered Twitch streamer who got special promotional opportunities from the company.
In March 2019, H1ghSky1 suddenly made news headlines after fellow 'Fortnite' player TSM Myth, who is Ali 'Myth' Kabbani from the gaming group 'Team SoloMid', leaked H1ghSky1's future prospects at the 'FaZe Clan'. During a stream, TSM Myth asked him about 'FaZe Clan' multiple times, repeating "You heard me, how’s FaZe?" As H1ghSky1 struggled to answer his question because it was not official yet, TSM Myth realized his mistake and attempted to backtrack by even saying, "What I meant was, how’s phasing through builds?" However, by the time the entire lobby was laughing at the accidental reveal, and despite TSM Myth's attempts, the reveal seemed plausible considering the fact that 'FaZe Clan' had recently signed another young 'Fortnite' player, 15-year-old Sway, to its team on March 12. Within a few days of the leak, the news was officially confirmed by both 'FaZe Clan' and H1ghSky1 through their respective Twitter accounts. Following the announcement, H1ghSky1 became one of the youngest professional 'Fortnite' players and also the youngest member of the 'FaZe Clan'. He was subsequently congratulated on Twitter by other 'FaZe Clan' members including owners Nordan 'Rain' Shat and Thomas 'Temperrr' Oliveira. Even though he is yet to compete at tournaments for his team, he has already appeared on many 'FaZe Clan' videos, including an interview with FaZe Adapt and a vlog with FaZe Banks and FaZe Adapt in which he gets a fake dragon tattoo.

Family & Personal Life
H1ghSky1, real name Patrick, was born on July 1, 2005, in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. He is still a school student despite time constraints as a professional gamer. However, he started online schooling a few months after he began streaming on Twitch regularly in June 2018. He told during his interview with FaZe Adapt that his parents have been very supportive even before he became famous and were happy for him after he joined the 'FaZe Clan'. He often watched 'FaZe Clan' videos as a kid, but never in his dreams thought for once that he would one day join the clan or become its youngest signee.
