He has an older brother and a sister.
He plas a lot of retro games, and 'gaijin' means 'foreigner' in Japanese.
He started playing video games when he received The Legend of Zelda as a gift when he was a grade-schooler. He went on to play a wide variety of video games, including Pokemon and the Vanilla WoW.
While completing his degree in teaching, he studied Japanese for two years. He then moved to Japan upon graduating in order to become an English teacher there. During his college days, he worked a couple of part time jobs and was also part of a band called The Campus Hustlers.
RetroGaijin started streaming Super Smash Brothers on his Nintendo 3DS when his girlfriend went on a trip for two weeks and he got bored. He was already living in Japan at that point and they released the game there earlier than in the West. He was therefore able to beat the English-speaking competition to exclusive video content before they were able to access it. This enabled him to attract viewers immediately. He found that he enjoyed it and kept it up.
His channel is not appropriate for children.
He has a fiancé.
