FilthyRobot grew up playing video games with his younger brother and always preferred PCs to consoles. He was introduced to his first game by his dad when he was in first or second grade with the DOS game Pharaoh’s Tomb. As he got older, some of the other games that he played included TIE Fighter, Heroes of Might and Magic 2, Age of Empires, StarCraft 1, and Warcraft 2 & 3. He has also played DotA and Heroes of Newerth.
After high school, he went on to complete his master’s degree in Social Psychology at Northern Illinois University.
He started streaming on Twitch in 2013 after many of his in-game opponents asked him to show them what he was doing. As he was feeling burnt-out with his college coursework after some of his viewers requested he do so because they had missed his live streamhe decided to try it out.
He then started uploading content to his FilthyRobot YouTube channel in February 2014. Upon completing his master’s in early 2014, his now-wife advised him to take a gap year before proceeding with his PHD in order to focus more on streaming. He has been streaming fulltime ever since.
He then joined Fade 2 Karma in January 2019 and opened his FilthyRobotVODs channel in May 2019.

I don’t actually recommend [streaming] to anyone... It’s probably going to end up being short-term for 99.9% of the people who try it because you can’t make enough money to live of doing it. In other words, if you have the time, the money or the desire to do it and you can afford to take a couple of years to do something that pretty much… encourages a skill set that is hard to translate into other markets, yeah sure. It’s a lot of fun, but I’m worried that it’s not financially viable for long-term.
