His parents are incredibly supportive of his career choices.
: According to a tweet, ‘My online name is Sinvicta and it's the combination of my old @Blizzard_Ent @StarCraft name which was S. Invicta which was the name of my old Metal Band. Blizzard removed the ability to use special characters in your names, so the name was changed to Sinvicta.’
Sinvicta grew up playing video games, with his all-time favorite game being Final Fantasy 1 on the NES. He has also always had a love for technology and computers. This is what motivated him to self-study computers and to watch his dad working on them. He started playing World of Warcraft during its beta in mid-2004. His first character was a Night elf Rogue name ‘Lawder’ for the Alliance. He also played football during high school.
While in college, he also acted as the college DJ. Following college, he worked as a bartender and a bouncer for about 14 years. He then worked in IT for two years until he was able to transition into fulltime content creation. He did this by saving up enough money to get him through a year of attempting to build his channels.
Sinvicta has been creating content for WarcraftMovies.com and YouTube in 2010. He was motivated to attempt creating his own content after watching others’ videos, and so began creating World of Warcraft PvP videos as a hobby. Two big inspirations for him were TotalBiscuit and HuskyStarcraft.
After a while, he met the StarCraft II commentator, HuskyStarcraft, online and he encouraged him to pursue fulltime content creation. He therefore transitioned to Let’s Play content, as he was concerned about copy-right issues with his current content. This was in 2012. He also began livestreaming on Twitch in June 2012. Over time, he moved on to Heroes of the Storm followed by League of Legends and slowly became a Binding of Isaac main. This came on gradually, as he originally played it as a time-filler while waiting on solo-Qs. His major break came on April 19, 2018 when one of his Isaac videos suddenly went viral and shot his channel into mainstream attention. This was his 204th Isaac: Afterbirth video alone, and 700th Isaac video in general.
has been on Twitch since. He primarily plays Binding of Isaac runs but also showcases his metal songs and plays variety games as well. He tries his best to keep his content family friendly.
According to his Twitch overlay, Sinvicta has over 1,900 subscribers. This means that his base monthly income should be at least $4,750 USD. This is before taking into account further revenue received from tiered subscriptions, Pateron donations, merchandise sales, donations, Twitch cheer bit contributions, advertisements and sponsorships.

his birthday is on May 1st.
In my opinion, the wrong attitude when going into new media is, ‘this is going to be my career, I’m going to make tons of money.’ I jus did it as a side thing.
