He has a girlfriend, three cats and is close to his parents.
He says that he cannot reveal the origin of his user handle for ‘legal reasons’. Although, he does state that it is completely unrelated to the ice-cream.
Although he had grown up playing video games, chocoTaco feels that he on really started really playing video games competitively when he was in eighth grade and started playing CS:GO. He then moved on to DotA in high school. It was only when Dota 2 was released that he completely focused on that game. However, even during that period, he was still mainly playing for fun with his friends. Nevertheless, he still managed to rank in the top 30 on the North and South American ladder.
Although chocoTaco has always been interested in becoming a streamer, he felt that it might be too difficult for him to succeed. However, when PUBG was released, he fell in love with it and completely dropped Dota 2. He was soon ranking at first place on the leaderboards and realized that this was the perfect opportunity for him to attempt opening a streaming channel. He self-promoted on several forums and quickly succeeded in gathering a significant following. However, he only started streaming full-time when he began making enough money to justify quitting his regular job in November 2017.

Networking and consistency are the keys to becoming a successful streamer. When I first started, I would find someone with ten viewers, be in their chat. I’d pick, like, five streamers, go in their chat for a couple of days and then ask if they want to play together. Then I would pay with them. Then all of a sudden, their viewers are coming to watch my stream.
