SilentSentry and his wife have a daughter and a son. They also have a cat and a dog.
SilentSentry has been playing video games since childhood. When he was eighteen, he found out that his girlfriend was pregnant and married her. He also dropped out of school to support her and the baby and to help get her through Graphic Design school. He was working very long hours and didn’t have time to socialize.
When his wife had finished her degree and he started studying for his own, he found that he finally had some free time at home. So, he decided to set up his own channel as a way to share his gaming passion with others.
He streamed his first video on March 16, 2014 while he was studying to become a paramedic. Over the years, his gaming channel grew, especially when he moved from DayZ to GTA V RPGing. He has also attributed some of his success to the weekly 24-hour streams that his wife encouraged him to start in the first few months of his channel. He often does RPG streams with other top streamers including Lirik and SayeedBlack.
He is largely popular due his dedication to staying in character throughout his roleplay on whitelisted mod-servers, as well as his voice-acting ranges.
SilentSentry is estimated to have ~3,000 subscribers, which would minimally net him $7,500 USD per monthly. This excludes additional revenue from merchandise sales, YouTube, sponsorships, tips, and Twitch cheer bit contributions.

Anybody at any job will eventually get complacent if they aren’t enjoying it and they aren’t putting effort into it. It something they’re not passionate about or enjoying, everybody gets lazy with their job. The problem is… where everybody tries to act like roleplaying and streaming is their job to the point where they’re getting lazy with it and they’re clearly not enjoying themselves. They’re forcing themselves to get on roleplaying because their numbers are higher… instead of allowing their roleplay to direct things, they’re allowing their stream and their income to direct things which makes it feel like an incredibly manipulated environment.
