He and his wife have a few dogs. He has three younger brothers, two of which are streamers @JuniorPK and @Ottohoops.
SypherPK started playing games when his dad bought him a PlayStation 2 when he was eight-years old. When he was in Elementary school, he was introduced to RuneScape by some older children and has been hooked on MMOs and FPS games ever since.
In middle school, he was given an assignment to produce a documentary. He found that he enjoyed filming and creating content, so he decided to set up a YouTube account to stream his RuneScape games in 2012.
He was inspired to pursue professional streaming by streamers like TimTheTatMan and so started creating serious content in 2014. He became a full-time streamer in the summer of that year.
According to his overlay, SypherPK has ~10,900 subscribers. As he regularly attracts over 2,500 viewers to his streams, he should be earning at least $38,150 USD per month. This is before taking into account the additional revenue that he receives from tiered subscribers, advertisements, donations, Twitch cheer bit contributions, and sponsorships.

My mood affects the mood of my audience. So, it is important for me to be strong willed and not let things get to me as easily.
Manage expectations and understand it can and will take years before anything comes of it. You might even realize you don't enjoy being a streamer, maybe just the idea of making money from video games.
