I started covering games on youtube in 2013 and have been making videos ever since. Originally I starter with making minecraft build tutorials and then mods for skyrim on console. For a couple of years I covered PUBG updates and then Warzone. Going forward Im focusing solely on making guides for new and upcoming games.
