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 on Monday evenings - right now, I'm doing my first playthrough of the Mass Effect Legendary Series. 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, medically discharged after being injured during my second tour overseas. I’ll be joined on stream from time to time by one of our doggos. I've had two Service Dogs since I left the Army - Noble, then Leo, who passed away in February. I'm looking for my third Service Dog now, but the wait lists are 2-3 years. If you know anyone who can help shorten that, I'm all ears.
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 FlightAssistPodcast.com. Check it out!
Each Thursday, MalForTheWin parses through the week’s Dogs of Lore community happenings. You'll also get a recap and stay up to date with your favourite Frontier and Frontier Foundry games and events, all with a MalForTheWin twist (#SorryNotSorry). Premiers happen on YouTube, so subscribe and turn on notifications so you can join the chat when the new episodes drop and watch with the community.
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.
