He and his wife have been married since February 2019 and have a daughter and two cats. He also has a sister.
While he was in university, he did some work as a presenter for their radio station. He later integrated these skills into his channel. After university, he worked fulltime as a radio presenter as well as working in retail on the weekends.
IntheLittleWood made his first attempt at creating YouTube videos in early 2007 on a channel called ‘InTheLittleWoods,’ on which he still occasionally uploads non-Fortnite content. He did so after he had spent about a year of watching various vlogging channels and deciding that he wanted to try it out himself as well. It had started out as a vlogging channel centered around the adventures of himself, his family and his friends. Hence, he chose to use the plural ‘Littlewoods’ as his account name.
He then decided to foray into Minecraft video content on his current main channel on February 21, 2011 after playing it for a few months. His big break came for him when he decided to dedicate a week to creating a Minecraft parody video of Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ called ‘Form This Way.’ It rapidly gained popularity and helped his channel to finally start gaining traction. It also served as his introduction to the Yogscast crew, as he decided to post his video’s link onto their forums.
He ensured that it remained at the top of the forum’s page by replying to viewer’s reply’s every couple of hours. This got the crew’s attention as well as an interview with Lewis. The Yogscast then helped him to reimplement it and uploaded it onto their channel, where it managed to gain 2 million views within the first week. This caused InTheLittleWood’s subscriber base to jump from ~250 to 15,000 subscribers within that time as well. His channel continued to skyrocket.
Since then, he has continued to create content with the Yogscast, as well as with many other YouTubers and Twitch streamers. In 2012, he released another parody song based on ‘Moves Like A Jagger’ which boosted his channel up to 200,000 subscribers. The Yogscast then invited him to move in to the YogsTowers with them. He accepted the offer which marked the beginning of his career as a fulltime content creator, especially as the radio station where he had been working has started making employee cuts.
In early 2019, he decided to focus more attention to his Twitch channel, and it has since become his main platform.
