He has a son, whom he shares custody of with his ex-girlfriend from high school. He married his wife in July 2019, and they have a cat. He also has a sister and a brother.
MTashed grew up playing video games, starting with Super Mario Bros., Super Mario RPG, Mega Man, and other Super Nintendo Entertainment System games from when he was around 3 years old after his brother received an SNES for his birthday. They then moved on to the Nintendo 64 with games like The Legend of Zelda when he was around 7. When he was older, he used to trade paper Pokémon cards when he was a kid. While he was growing up, his parents were focused on growing their automobile business, so he spent a lot of time being raised by his grandmother who lived with them. Outside of gaming, he also played hockey until Major AAA. This was largely due to his having a child when he was 18, as well as realizing that he would likely never make it to pro.
He started playing fps games in his early teens when some of his friends got Xboxes and he began playing with them. He only really got into sniping with Halo 3 and Call of Duty when he was around 15. After a while, he switched to maining League of Legends and made it to Diamond 1. He then resumed focusing on his sniping when he joined Destiny during its beta in mid-2014.
During university he worked in sales for bathroom fixtures while completing university. Upon graduating in April 2017, he quit his job to pursue fulltime content creation.
He started uploading comedy skits to his YouTube channel in July 2013 because he wanted to make people laugh. Although he knew that it was possible for some people to earn money from YouTube, he did not really think that that would happen with him. So, it just started out as a hobby for him to entertain his family and friends with. He opened his Twitch account in January 2014 and he started uploading Destiny guides to help people to progress in December 2014. He started taking it more seriously in mid-2016.
His language isn’t clean.
TwitchStats puts MTashed’s subscriber count at around at least 330 subscribers. This should earn him at least $825 USD per month. This excludes other revenue that he might earn from tiered subscriptions, team salary, tips, Twitch cheer bit contributions, advertisements, sponsorships and merchandise sales.
No set schedule.
I would never, ever, ever recommend someone quitting their job to pursue YouTube or Twitch fulltime… If you do it as a hobby and you do it for fun and it ends up becoming a job, yes. But anyone who tries to start and make money with it, good luck. It is so hard…. And the only people who make it are the people who are passionate and build up a following over time because they do it as a hobby. People who jump in trying to make money will almost never make it. Even if you want to start doing it, I have 215,000 subscribers and I still consider quitting because I don’t feel financially secure… I’m doing ok, but I still feel extremely risky doing this because I know that a lot of my popularity and a lot of my income depends on people enjoying the game that I make making videos on.
