STORM Esports is a premiere Chicago based organization that manages teams, provides game servers, hosts events, and utilizes our in-house production/broadcast team.

With years of esports experience between the owners, STORM is pushing the boundaries between competitive and casual gamers to build a strong community.

The STORM Discord started off in 2019 as a place for friends to gather and began to thrive. After realizing we had created something special, we decided to officialize as an organization and began pushing content, rebranding, and adding additional team members.



Fusing his passion for Esports and Video Production, Rob brings forth 15 years of experience in both areas to become a design and editing powerhouse. Overseeing all asset direction and creation for the brand.

When he’s not behind the computer, you can find him brewing a fresh pour over coffee, in the garage wrenching on his drift spec Miata or behind the decks spinning some drum & bass.


Zahti / seantella

Bringing friends together for LAN parties and hosting online events has been Sean’s passion all the way back to N64, GameCube, and Xbox. Key events throughout the last decade with some peaking at 30+ attendees are Winter WonderLAN, potato.LAN, and STORM Sundays.

In addition to setting up, running, and coordinating events, Sean is in-charge of all dedicated game servers used at events as well as providing and maintaining CS:GO and Minecraft servers for all members of STORM.


Coop / bigKAT

Ever since Cooper was in high school, all of his free time has been consumed by Esports. Not being the most technically skilled player on the server has driven his passion for more behind the scenes work. Whether Cooper is casting or managing, we consider him a jack of all trades. It doesn’t matter what game he’s playing, you’ll always find him joking around and having a good time with anybody on the server.

Outside of STORM, Cooper is typically watching some form of Esports footage to pass the time or searching for new music or chatting with friends on Discord.
