He was raised by his single mom, but she passed away in 2010. He and his baby sister then moved in with his grandparents.
His initials are C.P.K., so he decided to spell them out for his handle.
Seapeekay was introduced to video games by his grandmother when he was very small, as he used to play on her Atari when he went to visit her. He got his own first gaming console when he was seven years old and received a PlayStation 1 along with Tomb Raider 1 as a present. Outside of video games, he also grew up playing football in his spare time until he was around 13 years old. He then played golf for three years from when he was 14 years old.
While he was growing up, he moved to various countries in the UK, including England, Wales and Scotland. After completing his course at The Cornelius Vermuyden School and Arts College, he went on to work a fulltime job in sales. He then quit his job in March 2016 in order to pursue fulltime content creation.
He also works as a content writer for Halcyon Media.
He was inspired to try creating his own YouTube content after watching his friend creating content for a few years. He originally started uploading content to YouTube in around 2011, but it was closed down. He then began uploading to his current channel in October 2012. Another major motivator for him was that he saw YouTube as a way to combine his love of gaming with his love of comedy.
According to TwitchStats, he set up his Twitch account in January 2013. In September 2013, he was shouted out by PewDiePie, which really helped to boost his YouTube channels growth. He received Twitch partnership in April 2016.
He tends to stream almost daily for around 3.5 hours per session.
His favorite game is Final Fantasy VII.
