Prior to co-founding BMT, Drake contributed to numerous marketing and esports initiatives within Activision, Blizzard and Major League Gaming (MLG), including the launches of the Call of Duty World League and the Overwatch League. Most recently, he has worked for Activision Blizzard Esports, with a focus on creative content building and talent management/negotiation across several esports leagues.
Today marks the beginning of a new era in esports player and broadcast talent management,” says Drake, CEO. “As we look to the future of this rapidly evolving industry, Bad Moon Talent aims to be at the forefront of what is coming next for the players who compete and the talent that brings the viewers all of the action.
Faccento has been a mainstay in the professional Call of Duty scene since 2015. For over four years, he featured on various professional Call of Duty teams, including Rise Nation, Echo Fox and Evil Geniuses. In 2019, Faccento transitioned to Head Coach of eUnited, leading them to wins in the two biggest Call of Duty tournaments of the year: CWL Playoffs & CWL Champs.
Throughout my tenure as an esport professional, there has been a continual lack of proper representation for myself and my fellow colleagues. With the experience and expertise that my partner and I have acquired over years of being deeply embedded within the esports scene, Bad Moon Talent is here to fill that void.
