He and his wife have been married since August 2017 and have a son. He also has a younger sister. They have three golden retrievers, a Labrador and a couple of cats.
His original handle has been Tenderloin at the suggestion of one of his friends, but he changed it to his current handle at a later stage.
Cdewx started playing video games when he was a child and his dad introduced him to Mario on his Nintendo and PlayStation 1. He was always careful to play through all of the tutorials so that he would know how to play the game properly in order to defeat his friends. He never really played on a PC when he was younger because his father didn’t believe that that’s what computer games were meant for, aside from when he went to one of his friends houses.
His wife’s dad introduced him to WoW in 2006 when Cdewx and his wife were still just friends. He would go over to his friend’s house to play WoW there with his friend and his friend’s sister. He and his wife started dating after playing WoW together for a while. However, his mother bought him a computer one day, which lead to his becoming completely dedicating all of his free time to WoW.
During season 3, Cdewx joined a raiding guild. His guild leader taught him how to improve his game and to play more efficiently. He started playing on Blizzard’s Tournament Realms for fun. Someone from the Horde recognized his username and contacted him on the Tournament server to ask him to join him in a competition. He agreed and they ranked in the top 8 on the realm. He then discovered that this qualified them to compete in a regional event. They won that event as well, which resulted in their flying to Germany to compete in an international tournament when he was eighteen-years-old. He met many professional players there, one of whom invited him to join a professional team. They placed fourth in his first tournament. He continues to compete in professional tournaments to this day.
He and MitchJones have been friends for years and occasionally appear on each other’s streams.
Cdewx has ~2,000 subscribers, which would minimally earn him $5,000 USD per month, excluding income from sponsorships, advertising, tips and tournament winnings.
He doesn’t have a set schedule, but he streams almost daily for between 3 – 8 hours. He has been known to stream for 16 hours straight at times.
