He and his wife have been married since June 2018. They have a dog named Panini. He also has a sister.
Dekkster grew up playing video games. Although he played the Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh! card games a bit when he was younger, he only really started playing card games when he got into Hearthstone. This was because he focused more on collecting the paper cards than playing them.
However, he only played Hearthstone for a short while before the Curse of Naxxramas released and then only return around the release of Journey to Un’Goro in April 2017.
He began uploading videos to his YouTube channel on April 17, 2017 and started streaming around the same time. He did so in the hopes of going fulltime, as he wanted to make his passion into his career. He received Twitch partnership on September 15, 2018.
According to Dekkster’s Twitch chat bot, he has around 1,500 subscribers. This means that his starting monthly earnings should be at least $3,750 USD. This excludes additional revenue from tiered subscriptions, his team salary, Twitch cheer bit contributions, advertisements, merchandise sales, tips and sponsorships.

Building decks in general is just very, very hard. Especially coming up with archetypes that have never really seen action before... what I do often is, I see a deck that is already good and then I change cards that I think aren’t too critical to it. I remove this package and then add this mean package in instead... It requires a lot of testing. Maybe you put in a new card and it turns out bad, so you need to put in another new card… That can take you a few days… It can take you a few days to refine a good meme deck.
