Whilst it might not seem like the most conventional way to find fame, gaming has been a strong industry in this world that we live in and it has been responsible for the rise of some of the biggest names on Internet today. One of them is Mike Lamond or Huskystarcraft as you may know him. Lamond is famous as an E-sports commentator for StarCraft gaming competitions. Doing this, he has been able to grasp fame and earn a huge fan following.
Things have been a bit under the quiet side for the gaming icon and this has raised many questions and concerns from his fans. He might just be focusing his work on his girlfriend Rosanna Pansino‘s YouTube channel. Let’s just find more about what’s going on, shall we?
Mike Lamond: Early Life and Education
Michael D Lamond was born on the 4th of May, 1987, in Bakersfield, California. He was, however, raised in Nipomo, California. Lamond also has an older brother and the family together relocated to Gresham, Oregon when he was only 11. It was somewhere around that time that Huskyscraft found the wonders of gaming. He had just discovered StarCraft, a real-time strategy game from Blizzard Entertainment.

We have a very little to share regarding this gamer’s academics. We do know that he went to and graduated from a high school. He did show passion for gaming from a very young age and he was fascinated with computers. So our guess here is that Mike went to college to study computers?
Mike Lamond: Career
After discovering the game Starcraft, Husky began playing it on the server Battle.net. It wasn’t long until he completed a massive number of games and he was later promoted to the streaming service GOM TV. The service for many years has been a broadcasting platform for professional gamers. Mike had been focusing on this professional players and was trying to learn from them.
After observing many potentials in the game, Lamond thought of a new idea to turn this game into a worthwhile spectator’s sport. He then began providing an engaging commentary from his YouTube channel. It came as a massive surprise to Lamond when his channel was gaining decent followers with fans posting hundreds of videos. Next to spice up activity on his channel, he with the name Nerd Alert began producing parody videos of artists such as Justin Bieber and Rebecca Black. Mike later relocated to LA to focus more on The Game Station. He alongside TotalBiscuit became the sponsors of a new gaming team Axiom ESports.
Mike Lamond: Personal Life
Now coming to the personal aspects of his life, Mike first met Rosanna Pansino, the love of his life sometime in 2012. It was around then that Mike began appearing in her videos. As per reports, the two bought a two-storey house in LA for almost $1.5 million. However, upon selling the house, they bought a new home in 2016 in San Fernando Valley, Tarzana for about $4 million.
By the look of things, the pair is living a low-key life and like to stay away from the media. We first found out about their relationship in 2017 from a Tweet from Pansino; we did not know it then, we do now. Pansino is one of the highest paid YouTubers and is a big name in the platform.
Mike Lamond: Net Worth and Social Media
Mike has definitely been one of the biggest names in the gaming industry and it still holds true despite his decline in recent years. Today, he lives with his girlfriend in Tarzana in a two-storey luxurious property. Both of them are doing pretty well in their respective fields and are both making pretty decent amounts. As per Forbes, Mike’s girlfriend has a net worth of $6 million and we believe he has one of $3 million.
Sadly for us, Huskycraft is not active on YouTube anymore. It was the platform that made him who he is today, but for some personal reasons, he has been away from it now. We do hope to see him back, sooner rather than later. Mike, however, is active on Instagram and is pretty famous on the platform with just over 57.7k followers.
