Speedcubing is undoubtedly my biggest pastime. As its name suggests, speedcubing is the sport in which you attempt to solve a Rubik’s Cube at really high speeds. I do this a lot at home, and at competitions, as well!

Some of my most notable accomplishments include:

  • Sponsored by TheCubicle, arguably the most prominent cubing retailer in the world, having over 100,000 subscribers on YouTube! Consider using my discount code, “maxsiauw”, for 5% off any order you make with them.

  • 5th in the world and 1st in the USA for Sum of Ranks. It’s a statistic where you add up someone’s rankings for all of the WCA events, hence the name, “sum of ranks”. Its purpose is to measure someone’s all-around performance in speedcubing. The lower the sum, the higher someone is on the sum of ranks leaderboard.*

  • 1st in the Pacific Northwest for 3×3 single and average. My PRs are a 5.08 single and a 6.73 average.*

  • 8th in the world and 2nd in North America for Square-1. My current PR is a 7.37 average.*

  • 2019 Pacific Northwest Champion

  • Gained considerable followings on social media: 2,600+ YouTube subscribers, 1,400+ Instagram followers, 250+ Discord Server members, and 250+ Twitch followers

*These WCA rankings are the best rankings I’ve achieved in my cubing career, not my current rankings.

The 17 Events

There are a total of 17 events that one can compete in at a competition, each of which are listed below. Click one of the links to see my progression in the respective event. To the right of each event name, you can click a link to see which puzzles I use and where you can buy them.

Also, I’ve decided to keep my accomplishments in 3×3 with feet on my website, despite it having been removed from all World Cube Association competitions, more info for which can be found here.
