About Me

Hey folks! I’m Mal (or Adam, your choice). As a content creator, I focus heavily on Elite: Dangerous from Frontier, but I work in other space and sci-fi titles during the week, like No Man's Sky, Star Citizen, and Warframe. I also do the occasional astrophysics/astronomy cross-over, and I co-stream & commentate on lots of NASA/SpaceX events.

On the personal side, I'm a proud US Army veteran, 31S20 (that's a satellite communications operations/maintenance NCO). I was medically discharged after being injured during my second overseas tour (back & spine injury), and yes - I suffer from PTSD. I'd still be doing that job today if I could. Instead, you'll find me working at Twitch from 9-5 - yes, that Twitch!


I’m usually joined on stream by my service dog. I've had two service dogs since I left the Army - first Noble who served me from 2004 to 2012, then Leo, who served me from 2010 until he passed away in February 2021. I'm looking for a new service dog now, but the wait lists are 2-3 years. If you know anyone who can help shorten that, or have access to good AKC service dog candidates, I'm all ears.

Anyway, the point of all this is to talk about Canine Companions. They are a fantastic organization with the goal of helping all those who need a service dog to get one, free of charge. I'll be doing charity streams for them a few times a year, so keep your eyes on social media for announcements.


Our community is called the Dogs of Lore. The name is a shout-out to all the dogs from video games, TV, movies, and real-life that we love. It's also a bit of wordplay on "Dogs of War" (cause I love me some Pink Floyd and Shakespeare). We are a PMF and Squadron in Elite: Dangerous based out of the Pathamon system. We have a heavy focus on exploring, exobiology, and science. We are also an Alliance guild in World of Warcraft, focused on titles, mounts, and achievements. And, of course, lore is always a focus, because nothing sparks the imagination and completes the immersion like good storytelling.



This is where most of the fun happens. I love being able to interact with the community in real-time. I typically stream on Twitch five times a week, real-life and chronic pain permitting (schedule below).

Flight Assist Podcast

I'm the co-founder and co-host of the Flight Assist Podcast, together with my good friend and fellow streamer CMDR Psykit. Every week on the Flight Assist Podcast, we talk to a different CMDR or organization. We find out a little about them, what they’re up to in-game, and we talk about the things we love about Elite: Dangerous and its amazing community. New episodes drop Monday on all major podcast platforms and Check it out!

Late Night Space Flight Show

Each Thursday, MalForTheWin parses through the week’s space sim, sci-fi, and Dogs of Lore community happenings. Premiers happen live on Twitch, with the VOD dropping the next day on YouTube.


YouTube is where any heavily edited and post-produced content, highlight reels, and special event videos will be posted. I have some cool ideas for original, episodic Elite Dangerous content as well that might get posted here. Time permitting, of course.

I'm always excited to hear from you, my wonderful community. I'm also open to developers wanting exposure for your game (alpha/beta, early access, or on-the-market titles), and I'd love to explore opportunities with new or potential sponsors.
