Kevin Nanney's Biography

Kevin "PPMD" Nanney is one the top professional Super Smash Bros. players in the United States and a legend in his home state of North Carolina. In Smash Melee, his Falco is widely considered among the best in the world.

In 2009, he got his start in competitive Smash where he was able to place well in several tournaments, but it wasn't until the end of 2010 where he picked up his first big win at Revival of Melee 3. During the next couple years, he continued adding to his trophy collection with a plethora of 1st place finishes at Northwest Manifest, Civil War 4, Zenith 2012, and Kings of Cali. He also carried over his success partnering with top local players from North Carolina as well as many of the best in the U.S. in 2v2.

Since the end of 2013, PPMD has been on an absolute hot streak finishing in 1st place at nearly every tournament he has competed in, capping off a small hiatus from competition to smash his way to victory against long-time rival Armada and claim the crown at APEX 2015. Now that he's a member of Evil Geniuses, he will be looking to continue his winning ways in future tournaments.
