His parents are supportive of his career choice. He also has a sister.
It’s his name spelled backwards.
SirhcEz has been playing video games since he was a kid. He didn’t have many friends in high school and found solace in gaming. He feels that his music and his connection to G-d really helped him to overcome his shyness and to gain some confidence.
He got into LoL soon after its release and was already a diamond rank when he began streaming. People in the community noticed how good he was, especially as he would often be matched against Dyrus and Voyboy and sent him friend requests so that they could spectate his matches. Eventually, one of his viewers recommended that he stream and so he did. He enjoyed it, so he kept it up, without any intention to become a pro-streamer.
When he reached the 300-viewer mark and received partnership with Twitch, he decided to aim at streaming fulltime. However, he only quit his job at McDonald’s when he was averaging 1,000 viewers, as he felt that it was worth the risk at that point. He joined Team Liquid in early 2016.
SirhcEz is estimated to have ~2,400 subscribers. This would minimally earn him a monthly income of $6,000 USD, without taking tiered subscriptions into account, as well as excluding income from other sources, such as tips, Twitch cheer bits, sponsorships, advertising revenue and his monthly salary from Team Liquid.
While he doesn’t have a set schedule, he tends to stream several times a week and sometimes even daily for between 7 – 9.5 hours straight.
Advice for Streamers
SirhcEz advises that people good at the game that they want to stream, be entertaining, unique, engage with their community and don’t give up. It took him six months before he gained more than 30 viewers.
