Founder and Editor of Real Life Highscore

G’day, I’m Daniel or ‘ZiggyD’ as some people may know me from gaming and writing. I’m an Australian marketer (both online and offline), a professional writer, a website developer and a competitive gaming enthusiast.

I love challenging games that require dedication, discipline and a strategic mind. Starcraft 2 is my game of choice – when I played my first multiplayer match in late 2010 something awoke inside of me. My mind swirled with strategies and a desire for self-improvement awoke within me. I wanted to become better at not just Starcraft but also life.

I needed an outlet for all of this energy inside of me so in early 2011 I launched LearningSC2.com as a way of sharing my Starcraft 2 learning experience with others. Between then and 2012 I managed to progress from Bronze (the very bottom) to Masters (around the top 5% of players) whilst completing a degree (bachelor of business) and working. Progress that I am very happy with, though I am far from done!

All of the writing and learning that I did for Starcraft made me realize how much I love to create content that other people find useful and it also made me realize that I wanted to be self-employed rather than face the human domestication of another job. I wanted to be able to do the things I love and earn money from the value I create for others rather than the time I give to a boss.

Now I have left my job and am creating my own marketing business whilst continuing to write and create content that, hopefully, other people will find useful. I am very excited about RLHighscore and I look forward to hearing from you!
