Thorin's history in esports journalism stretches back to 2001, rooted primarily in the Quake series and Counter-Strike. Working for sites in Russia, Sweden, the USA and Germany over the last 12 years, Thorin specialises in lengthy historical articles and interviews. Over time he has expanded the focus of his work into other games, such as StarCraft: Brood War, StarCraft2 and now LoL.
His entry point into following competitive League of Legends came in November of 2012, when he featured Snoopeh as the debut LoL episode in the Grilled series. Following the success of subsequent Grilled episodes with Doublelift and Saintvicious, both from IPL5, Thorin decided to increase his focus on LoL within the series. 
In December 2013, Thorin joined OnGamers as a Senior eSports Content Creator, leaving Team Acer. There, he continued his Grilled interview series under a new name, Reflections, in addition to writing numerous articles. On February 7, 2014 the first episode of Summoning Insight, a talk show co-hosted by Thorin and MonteCristo was aired. Featuring a guest most weeks, the show became extremely popular for both its analysis and entertainment value, though many of the topics discussed were also controversial.
On October 7, 2014, Thorin announced he would no longer be working at OnGamers. The show Summoning Insight continued under the banner Insight On Esports, and Thorin also began posting articles on the website Gold Per 10 and video content including Thorin's Thoughts on his YouTube channel.
