Pikabooirl was introduced to World of Warcraft (WoW) by his dad’s friend when he was in elementary school. Whenever his dad would take him to hang out at his dad’s friend, he would allow Pikabooirl to play on his account while he and Pikabooirl’s dad hung out in the other room. He played rogue, because that is what he had access to and wound up sticking with it.
He is currently completing his Bachelor of Arts in Communications and Media Studies at Sonoma State University.
He started streaming casually on Twitch in August 2013 and then entered the pro-World of Warcraft (WoW) Arena scene in 2014. In 2018, he along with friends Absterge, Wizk and Jellybeans, founded an Arena guild called ‘The Move’ in order to compete in tournaments. Their hard work paid off, as they placed second in the 2018 Arena World Championship. They continued grinding in tournaments, which caught the attention of the Golden Guardians who decided to sign them on as their pro-team in December 2019.
According to TwitchStat’s, Pikabooirl’s Twitch subscriber count is at over 3,400 and averages over 2,000 viewers. This would place his starting monthly income at a minimum of $11,900 USD before he receiving additional revenue from tiered subscriptions, tips, his team salary Twitch cheer bit contributions, advertisements, tournament winnings and sponsorships. His total tournament winnings are estimated to be at over $42,000 USD.
He doesn’t have a set schedule, but tends to stream daily for between 5 – 7 hours per session.
