He and his wife have been married since 2017 and live in South California.
When he was younger, Savjz played a variety of games including paper Magic: The Gathering, World of Warcraft, League of Legends and Warcraft 3.
Savjz started playing Hearthstone (HS) after receiving a beta key in late 2013 and was soon addicted to the game. One day, he started looking for video content demonstrating high-level constructed gameplay, but he couldn’t find any. He therefore decided to create his own content and his channel soon took off. He has been a Twitch partner since January 2014.
He hadn’t originally planned on becoming a pro-player, but due to his high rankings, he found himself being invited to participate in various HS tournaments. His successes there, as well as his growing stream, made him realize that it might be a possible career for him.
Prior to streaming, he completed his degree in Social worked. He continued to work in the field until he was earning enough money from streaming to attempt it as a fulltime career. He joined Team Curse in April 2014, but only remained with them for two months. He then joined Team Liquid I August 2014 and has remained with them since then. In 2015, he started occasionally casting events as well.
From October 2018 until November 2019, he took a break from Hearthstone, as he had become bored of it. Instead, he began to stream Magic: The Gathering Arena as well as various auto-battler content. It was also the new Battlegrounds auto-battler mode that attracted him back to HS in November 2019.
Savjz is estimated to have ~3,600 subscribers, with an average viewership of ~2,460. This should generate him at least $12,600 USD per month. This is before taking into account the additional revenue that he receives from tiered subscriptions, tips, Twitch cheer bit donations, sponsorships, tournament winnings, advertisements and his team salary. According to EsportsEarnings, he has won over $130,000 USD from various tournaments.

You should definitely be streaming and have something that is unique to you. Maybe you are really good at shaman, or maybe you’re a good priest player. Something [that differentiates] you and your stream from others. I think that’s the most important thing.
