She married her husband in late 2018. They have three cats: Riot, Gremlin and Whisper.
When she was growing up, most of her friends called her 'Eli,' and so her sister used to call her 'Alias.' Therefore, when she created her Twitch account, she decided that she wanted to use 'Alias' as her handle, But, it was already taken, so she decided on 'AliasV,' because she has five family members and was born in the fifth month of the year. That was also taken originally, so she called herself 'AliasV on Twitch,' which people often misread as 'Alias Von Twitch' until she was finally able to claim the correct account.
AliasV grew up playing the paper
when she was older, she would go play games like Crash Bandicoot on her friend's PlayStation 1. She only started playing PC games when she was in her late teens when she began playing The Sims.
It was only when she and her husband, referred to on stream as her ‘human,’ moved to Canada that she invested in a gaming PC and started getting into more serious gaming.
Prior to streaming full time, she completed her degree in Film Produciton and then worked as a video editor in post-production on some major films and commercials in Canada.
AliasV's husband discovered video game streams and got her to watch them with her. Eventually, they found out about Twitch and started watching some of the bigger streamers like CohhCarnage and ProfessorBroman. They enjoyed watching them, which inspired her husband to attempt streaming himself.
After they moved to Canada, they finally had decent internet and so AliasV's husband began streaming his RPG gameplays. After a while, he encouraged her to try it out herself. She did so, but she didn’t enjoy her first couple of experiences. However, she gave it a second shot when she discovered Gwent on her PlayStation 4 in August 2017 and really enjoyed it. This motivated her to attempt streaming again, which she did. Her husband, however, lost interest in streaming himself.
AliasV was partnered with Twitch on January 12, 2018. By April 2018, Gwent’s popularity was declining and AliasV wasn’t enjoying the game anymore anyway, so she decided to try something else. Around that time, she received an invitation from anMagic: The Gathering Arena representative to try out the closed beta. She had never played MTG before but decided to try it out, while viewers taught her how to play. Since then, she has gained a great deal of skill and recognition. On November 30, 2018 she was signed on with CompLexity Gaming.
Although she didn't tell her parents about her streaming channel until after the first year, they were supportive of her hobby. She only started streaming and commentating fulltime in February 2020 when she felt that she was earning enough from it to justify doing so.
AliasV is estimated to have ~500 subscribers, with an average viewership of ~450. This should earn her at least $1,250 USD per month, excluding additional income from team salary, sponsorships, tiered subscriptions, merchandise sales, donations, casting fees, Twitch cheer bit contributions, and advertisements.
