His parents are very supportive of his career path.
Simply initially discovered Twitch through League of Legends when he was looking for content after Own.tv became defunct. While he was browsing one day, he discovered Siglemic’s channel. He was considered to be one of the top Super Mario 64 speedrunners at the time, and Simply quickly became addicted to his content so that watching him became part of his daily routine. After a while, he decided to try out speedrunning for himself and so attempted his first run in August 2012.
However, he took a break suring his college years, starting from 2015, and then again in 2018 after suffering from carpal tunnel.
He was introduced to rap music by his older brother and after listening to it for a long time, he again decided to give it a shot.
He started streaming his attempts on Twitch in July 2013 and uploaded his first video to YouTube in October 2013.
He went into to fulltime streaming in December 2019 after recovering from his carpal tunnel.
Twitchstat’s puts Simply’s Twitch subscriber count at around 2,600. As he frequently attracts over 1,500 viewers, this would put his base monthly income at minimally $9,100 USD per month. This is before he receives further income from tiered subscriptions, advertisements, sponsorships, tips, and Twitch cheer bit donations.

[In order to avoid burnout,] it’s really about the mentality that you have going into it. If you’re trying to attract viewers, you’re trying to be the best [and] things like that, things that are going to take a lot of time, If you aren’t having fun every day, if you aren’t able to just enjoy playing the game, like off stream or whatever, then you’re going to get burnt out. So, I think it’s just the way you approach it.
