Daerek was raised in Eden Prairie, Minnesota where he grew up playing video games.

League of Legends Career

As he progressed in League of Legends, he became known in the high elo ladders for being an only support player, actually playing solely
for a long period of time. He eventually reached rank 1 in solo queue in Season 2 using only support. It was during Season 2 that he was invited to join the team HOODSTOMPGRAVESGG, whose roster consisted of Hoodstomp, LiNk, Yoda, and Vech. This team soon after was picked up in April 2012 by the Orbit Gaming organization to actively compete. LemonNation and his team went through roster changes quickly after joining, however the team went on to pave a strong up and coming name for themselves, placing high in tournaments they entered.

In November 2012, Daerek with his teammates left the brand. Becoming a well known team by this point, they were acquired by Quantic Gaming. It was short-lived as the organization decided to disband. The players went on to compete under the name Team NomNom, which became Cloud 9. Still playing support, in January 2013, Daerek's team came close but were unsuccessful on becoming a team on Riot's new upcoming Season 3 professional competitive league, Riot Season 3 NA Championship Series. Adding new players to the roster after others had left, LemonNation and company were again picked up by revamped Quantic Gaming. This new team was discussed as one of the top amateur teams in the competitive scene, winning the 2013 MLG Winter Championship Summer Promotion Qualifier. Afterwards, the Quantic team achieved what they previously faltered on and won a spot at Season 3 LCS Summer Promotion, beating compLexity Gaming and becoming a new team on the LCS for the summer series.

In May 2013, Lemon and the team decided to part ways with the organization and reform to play under their old name, Cloud 9.

On October 23rd 2015, LemonNation moved from Support to a Staff position. [1]
