When he was younger, he decided to start playing Dark Age of Camelot and needed to choose a name for his character. He looked through some of his books and found ‘Mattimeo’ in one of the Red Wall series books. However, he misspelled it by mistake when he was typing it in, and it has been his name ever since.
Matimi0 graduated from the University of Michigan with a Major in Political Science and then worked in an internship position before pursuing a fulltime career as a content creator.
When he started playing Battlefield: Bad Company 2 while he was in college, he tried to look for video content online and realized that there wasn’t much available. He felt that he could create better videos and so he decided to try making some YouTube himself, as he was a bit bored. He tried it out and enjoyed it, so he kept it up.
When his internship ended after college, he had more free time while he was looking for a fulltime job and so created more YouTube content. He gained more followers and was soon making enough money to justify pursuing content creation as a fulltime career. However, that had never been his original plan.
He and LevelCapGaming met in early 2012, when he contacted Mattime0 to ask whether he would be interested in creating content together for a ‘Squad Up’ series. Although he wasn’t familiar with LevelCapGaming’s work he agreed, and they have since become friends and have continued to content together. He first attempted streaming in early 2014, but only really got into it towards the end of the year after investing in the necessary equipment.
He tries to keep his channel PG13.
