I am Emil Christensen, known as HeatoN in the gaming and esports community. Since the early days of competitive gaming, I've been actively involved in its development and progression.

About Heaton

My journey began in the early 2000s with Counter-Strike, where I joined the iconic Ninjas in Pyjamas team. Together, we achieved the milestone of becoming the first-ever World Champions of Counter-Strike. Transitioning from player to owner, I led Ninjas in Pyjamas through the CS:GO era, notably achieving an unprecedented 87-0 winning streak.

A proud moment in my career was being the inaugural inductee into the ESL Hall of Fame.

Gaming and esports have been integral parts of my life for over two decades. Today, I’m actively engaged with the community as a full-time Twitch streamer, holding the title of Sweden’s most popular streamer. Beyond streaming, I find joy in family life with my wife and two daughters.
