He was raised by his mom and is very close to her.
iFrostBolt has been playing games since he was little, starting on his Super Nintendo System. As he grew older, he participated in various sports and studies, as well as trying out different video game genres in his spare time.
As a teenager, he mained the various Call of Duty titles. However, he had planned on giving up gaming when he went to college, but changed his mind when he saw Titanfall being advertised and thinking that it might be ok to get at least one game to play in his free time.
But he was disappointed to discover that Titanfall was an Xbox-exclusive game. So, when he saw Destiny 1 being advertised, he felt that it might be a decent alternative and went with that instead, especially as it imbued sci-fi. He had originally thought that it was a PVE game and was pleasantly surprised to discover that it also included PVP modes, as he had never played one of Bungie’s games before. He first tried it out during its alpha in mid-2014 and fell in love with it.
While he was at college, once of his close friends kept disappearing to ‘go live.’ iFrostBolt didn’t know what that meant, so he asked him about it and found out about Twitch and streaming. He began watching his friend’s streams. After a while, he decided to start streaming his Destiny 1 6v6 matches in late December 2014. This was around the period of the Dark Below expansion.
He enjoyed it and kept at it and his channel slowly grew. His channel really started to grow with the release of the Trials of Osiris. They found the Crucible easy and so he and his streaming friend started helping their friends to get through it. This evolved into a weekly weekend event revolving around each new trial that gave their channels a major follower boost.
iFrostBolt’s Twitch overlay puts his subscriber base at around 2,390, which would put is minimum monthly income at around $5,975 USD per month. This excludes other income that he receives from tiered subscriptions, donations, merchandise sales, Twitch cheer bit contributions, tournament winnings, advertising, and sponsorships.
