He lost his father when he was a teenager. He has a sister and is close with his mom.
Although his original tag had been 'Weeds,' but he decided to change it after a couple of years, due to the negative associations that are connected to it, as well as branding issues due to the TV show. JoshOG was selected as his new handle based on a community vote.
When JoshOG originally started streaming for fun in June 2014, his goal was to get 250 followers to his channel. However, his channel quickly grew beyond what he had expected. In fact, he soon accumulated enough subscribers to make it worthwhile for him to drop out of college and focus on his streaming career.
JoshOG is estimated to have ~7,430 subscribers. This should earn him $26,000 USD monthly, before taking merchandise sales, sponsorships, tiered subscriptions, tips, tournament winnings, Twitch cheer bit donations, and advertisements into account. According to Eposrts Earnings, he has earned ~$39,440 USD from various tournaments.
