He and his wife have been married since May 2007 and have a daughter and a son. His brother is fellow streamer, Bossman.
His original tag had been ‘OldManSwag,’ but he later changed it to ‘Swagger’ as he felt that it would be easier for people to remember.
Swagger grew up playing fps games, with one of his first online fps games being Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. From there, he moved on to Call of Duty and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) and CS: Source, among many others. During that time, he would also compete in the occasional LAN event and even managed to win some money at them.
In 2017, he lost his job due to the Telecommunication company that he was working, Time Warner Cable, at being bought out by Spectrum and moving to another state. Although he was offered to continue with his position as a Network Operations Manager at their new premises, he and his wife didn’t want to move away from their family. And so, while he was looking into new opportunities, he decided to try streaming for a couple of years to see whether he could make it work.
He started streaming Player Unknown's Battleground (PUBG) on Twitch on August 2, 2017. He had been working at his previous job for fifteen years and felt that the severance pay would provide him with enough of a financial cushioning to allow him to take the risk of pursuing streaming as a fulltime career. Fortunately for him, it worked out and his channel grew as he had hoped that it would.
