HighDistortion started playing videos at a young age. By 12, he had acquired enough skills to participate in Halo tournaments. He moved on to Gears of War when he was a bit older and played it competitively for almost a decade.
When Fortnite first released it took him a while to get into it, because he was more interested in Overwatch (OW) and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds at the time and wasn't really interested in trying out a third-person shooter game. In fact, the only reason that he tried it out was because he wanted something to do while was waiting a few hours for an OW suspension to end.
He opened his Twitch account in 2015,and streamed some of his Gears of War gameplays. However, he only really started streaming seriously in October 2017 when he started playing Fortnite. On January 11, 2018 he signed with TSM and quickly gathered followers, accumulating 3,100 subscribers by March 3, 2018 and 6,100 subscribers by June 10, 2018. He often plays duos with KingRichard.
HighDistortion has an estimated ~10,000 subscribers, with an average viewership of ~4,430. This should earn him at least $35,000 USD per month, excluding additional income from tiered subscriptions, team salary, sponsorships, tips, Twitch cheer bit donations, merchandise sales and advertisements. According to his Twitch biography, he has received at least $14,000 USD from his top ten donors alone and according to Esports Earnings, he won ~$47,000 USD between January 2018 and August 2019.

If you are new and unknown you need to work from the bottom. I started with friends and then we played other teams and those better other teams will notice you and they will contact you and you will end up playing with them and you work your way up. It is a cycle. I started with friends and worked my way up.
