Who is Mike Lamond?
A former sports commentator, and nowadays a YouTuber better known online as Husky Starcraft or just Husky, Michael ‘Mike’ Lamond was born under the zodiac sign of Taurus, on 4 May 1987, in Bakersfield, California USA; he holds American nationality and his ethnicity is white. He’s also a director, producer, and voice actor but is still perhaps known best for his commentating on StarCraft II tournaments, which were viewable through his now-deleted YouTube channel.
Early life and education
After Mike’s birth, his family moved to Nipomo, San Luis Obispo County, California, where he spent his childhood until the age of 12, when the family moved to Portland, Oregon, and then to Beavercreek, Oregon, where his parents and his older brother still reside.
Mike hasn’t disclosed information regarding his parents’ and brother’s name, nor their occupations, thus it’s assumed that they prefer to keep their lives away from the public eye.
Mike had an interest in video games from an early age, and as he said, since he was eleven years old, every aspect of his life and later career has involved gaming or nerd culture.
Speaking about his education, he attended a local high school, and according to sources, upon matriculating in 2005, he continued his education at one of the prestigious US colleges to study computer science, however, Mike has neither denied nor confirmed this information.
Rose to prominence
Sometime in 2010, Mike launched his gaming YouTube channel, and being already an avid player of the video game StarCraft with several thousand played matches, he soon started commenting on StarCraft: Brood War professional competition, on his channel, and in one moment he was uploading nearly 100 videos per month, and has already become a most popular commentator of this video game.
Eventually, Mike chose to commentate exclusively on StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty matches, and at first collaborated with Alex Do, better known online as HD Starcraft or HD, before the two of them were invited to commentate tournaments.
In July 2010, Mike and HD Starcraft alongside several other video game casters, participated in the launching of the new YouTube channel entitled “The Game Station”, the popularity of which quickly grew, and the success of the channel was partly Mike’s merit because of his own success on YouTube.
Mike moved to Los Angeles, California where he pursued his career in gaming, and broadcasting for “The Game Station” until early 2015, when he stopped broadcasting esports tournaments and submitting content on his channel; his reason for subsequently deleting his channel in 2018, which at that time had over one million subscribers, with all of his videos having gained over 400 million views, as he said, was his desire to end that part of his life.
With fans wanting to know the reason for this, in 2019 he uploaded a video onto his second YouTube channel “Husky”, in which he explained his decision, saying that his vocal cords were damaged due to his broadcasting work, and sometimes it was so hurtful that he couldn’t speak.
His second YouTube channel has nearly 400,000 subscribers, and all of his videos combined have amassed over 15 million views, while his Instagram has been followed by over 130,000 people, and his Twitter has gained over 95,000 followers.
However, today, Mike mostly presents himself as Rosanna Pansino’s manager, and he’s often seen in her videos.

According to sources, Mike and Rosanna met back in 2012, and he was seen in her videos in the following year, however, until 2018 they didn’t speak about their relationship; in November, Rossana announced that they were a couple, without revealed when they actually started dating.
With their relationship official, Mike started uploading their joint videos, featuring their everyday life, some challenges, and travels – the most viewed video on his YouTube is “Surprising My Girlfriend With A New Puppy!”, viewed over four million times.
