It used to be Exility, but he decided to shorten it when he started streaming. He went with 'BigEx,' because 'Ex' was already taken.
BigEx grew up playing video games, but his main passion was basketball. However, he was forced to quit after sustaining and injury, and so decided to attempt streaming instead.
He started uploading NBA 2K content to his YouTube channel in July 2016 from his tiny walk-in closet. But he later switched to Fortnite in March 2018 after he managed to rank first on the Chapter 1 Season 3 leaderboards with over 300 wins and over 5,000 kills.
However, he only started streaming on Twitch in February 2019. With this as his new focus, he started sacrificing a lot of his school time and free to pursue streaming. Fortunately, he still managed to pass and went on to stream full time after graduating for high school. He joined Ghost Gaming in February 2019 and remained with them until he left them to pursue his own endeavors.
In November 2019, he and his friends formed a gaming team called Chronic, which he still owns. He then signed on with Misfits Gaming in December 2019. He started branching out into other games suchas GTA V in July 2020.
His parents have always been supportive of his streaming. He has a brother. His three dogs are Princess, Rich and Eevee.
He doesn’t have a set schedule but streams most days for between 2 – 9 hours per session.
You don’t need [a fancy setup when you’re starting out streaming.] You don’t need a Blue Yeti. You don’t need an L-desk. You don’t need three monitors. I did it on one (60Hz) monitor and read comments off my phone ‘til [I reached] 100k… I was at 100k still struggling, with a PS4, bad internet and one monitor… You don’t need everything in the world to do something.
