A fan of all limited formats, Kenji Egashira, better known as his online handle “NumotTheNummy”, has been playing Magic for over 15 years. While he doesn’t (yet) have any Pro Tour experience to his name, he’s cemented himself as one of the most entertainingly prolific players in the community. You can usually catch him streaming over at www.twitch.tv/numotthenummy.

Kenji currently resides in Washington State, just outside of Seattle.  Kenji graduated from Washington State University in 2011 with a double degree in Sociology & Anthropology.  After a while of working less than thrilling jobs, Kenji successfully took on the one year live streaming challenge, where he played Magic on stream every day.  The success and popularity of that event has allowed Kenji to turn Twitch streaming into his full time job.

Along with streaming Magic, Kenji regularly attends live events either as a participant or as part of a larger coverage team.  This year Kenji plans to attend a significant number of events and along with his Numot Gaming partners he hopes to make a splash in both the GP and PT scene.
