So what is there to say? I am originally from South Africa, born and raised. I grew up as a missionary kid over there and moved to the U.S. (specifically the Dallas-Ft. Worth, TX area) when I was 17. I’ve been here ever since, so while I might maintain hints of an accent, most of it is gone by now. I can still bust it out at will if I want; I just have to think about it now.
I’m a major Star Wars fan, having played all the RPG and MMO games along the way. I got started in MMO’s with Star Wars Galaxies (may she rest in peace), with copious amounts of Knights of the Old Republic I and II run-throughs too. I was a Galaxies refugee for a while like many others, playing the original Guild Wars pretty extensively, and then later I dabbled some in Aion and Guild Wars II, but really I was just waiting for Star Wars: The Old Republic to come out. And that’s right, I managed to avoid World of Warcraft! The characters have always been a tad on the cartoony side for me, and I’m a devoted non-conformist wannabe
I started streaming some time in early 2015, so it hasn’t been that long, really. I figured out rather quickly that I could leverage an extensive career in amateur web and graphic design to make the stream look pretty, so I did. I’ve enjoyed that part of it.
Most of all, I love the community of people that hang out watching streamers. It has been the people I have met along the way that have made this whole experiment fun and worthwhile. So I’m glad to do it. It’s been a blast!
