Slappie lives with his parents and older brother. They also have a per Guinea pig and a dog.
Slappie has been playing video games for fun since he was little. He developed his shooting skills in Minecraft, H1Z1 and CS:GO, before switching to Fortnite upon its release. The idea of becoming a pro-gamer first came to him when he got into Call of Duty and began watching YouTube videos and matches online. This inspired him to start creating his own clips for YouTube.
His father was originally skeptical when Slappie told him that he wanted to pursue a career in gaming, as his father felt that there was too large a pool of gamers who wanted the same thing for him to really stand a chance in that field. However, Slappie persevered anyway.
He started streaming his gameplays in December 2017, and really began to gain followers in August 2018 after a summer of grinding hard in Fortnite and successfully killing streamers and clipping videos of them. In December 2018, he was both signed on with TSM's junior Fortnite squad and partnered with Twitch. After going pro, he switched to online schooling to complete high school.
As he is still in school, his hours are not set, but he generally streams from around 21:00 UTC onwards for between 3 – 5 ½ hours.
Advice for Streamers
Slappie encourages Fornite fans to record and analyze their Build Fights if they want to improve, as it will help them to see where they are taking unnecessary actions. He also stresses the importance of maintaining momentum and gaining high-ground during fights.
He says that streaming isn’t easy: You have to be consistent and keep at it.
