His cat is a British Short Hair called Frosty.
According to his chat bot, ‘when Craig started playing Dune 2000, he asked his dad which name to use while he was watching
ONSCREEN has been playing video games ever since his dad introduced him to Doom 2 when he was six years old. Other games that he played when he was small included Dune2000 and Quake.
Prior to streaming full time, he spent a few years working in IT for Virgin Media, Barclaycard and then Shell.
He started out on a pro team for Counter-Strike 1.6 and he transitioned to CS:GO when the rest of his team decided to move across to that title instead.
He originally started streaming on Twitch in 2013 when he and his CS:GO teammates decided to set up a pro/streamer hose together under their org. However, even though he started out with around 50 viewers thanks to his pro-fans, it still wasn’t so lucrative, so he wound up using it as a way to reach out to people who would then pay him to boost them to reach Global Elite in CS:GO. However, he eventually stopped streaming as his clients were nervous about getting caught, so he met them though forums instead. He then got back into it in July 2014 and had gained enough subscribers to risk quitting his job for to pursue full time streaming by early 2015.
According to his overlay, ONSCREEN has over 4,800 subscribers and averages over 10,000 viewers. This means his base monthly income should be at least $16,800 USD, before taking into account further revenue he may receive from tiered subscriptions, tips, Twitch cheer bit contributions, advertisements and sponsorships. EsportsEarnings estimates that he has won over $141,800 USD from various tournaments.
He doesn’t have a set schedule.
[In terms of gaining viewers,] I had a following straight away, so I've never experienced the 0 viewers thing. I would recommend getting known elsewhere before starting to stream yes, be that just some of your friends watch you regularly or from YouTube, just don't sit there with 0 viewers and expect viewers to come pouring in.’.
