He has a couple of sisters, as well as a black Labrador named Jade.
'Ham’ was his high school nickname, as it rhymed with his real name and it followed him to college. While there, someone adapted the name, and has remained with him. When he opened a channel on Twitch, both ‘Hambino’ and ‘Hambinoo’ were taken, so he settled for three o’s.
Hambinooo was introduced to video games by his dad who was an avid console gamer when he while growing up. He then moved on to PC games as a teenager and has stuck largely with the platform since then. Although he played a variety of video games, he has always gravitated more towards fps titles. His first exposure to Counter-Strike 1.6 was when he was fourteen years old, and it was the first game that really flamed his competitive streak.
It was only in 2017 that he really began playing video games more intensively, moving through a spectrum of games including World of Warcraft (WoW), Tom Clancy’s: The Division and Smite. He eventually discovered PlayerUnknown’s Underground (PUBG) and fell in love with it.
He joined Nobel Esport’s pro PUBG team in August 2018. He started streaming shortly after that. He has since moved on from the pro-scene and is now a full-time content creator.
His family has always been supportive of his career choice, even though they were slightly concerned when he quit his job to pursue it.
Hambinooo’s Twitch overlay puts his subscriber base at ~3,890. Therefore, as he generally attracts ~800 viewers per stream, he should be receiving at least $9,725 USD in monthly earnings. This excludes additional revenue that he generates from tiered subscriptions, donations, Twitch cheer bit contributions, sponsorships, merchandise sales and advertisements.
