He has a brother.
TommyKayLIVE got seriously into video games after transferring to a new high school in his second-last year. He failed to fit in and spent much of his free time playing video games as a result.
After high school, he went on to get a degree at university followed by a stint in the German army.
He uploaded his first YouTube video in December 2011, but only uploaded his next in August 2017. He started streaming on Twitch on July 15, 2017.
He swears a lot.
According to TommyKayLIVE’s Twitch overlay, he has around 3,300 subscribers. AS he usually attracts around 800 viewers, this should generate him an income of at least $8,250 USD each month. This amount excludes additional income that he receives from tiered subscriptions, tips, sponsorships, Twitch cheer bit donations, advertisements, and merchandise sales. His Twitch autobiography puts the donations from his top 5 donators alone at over $7,240 USD.
He updates his schedule weekly beneath his stream.
[Growing my channel wasn’t hard for me.] But it wasn’t easy and gifted to me. What I mean is… that building up my Twitch channel was very natural for me. I play games all day anyway. I’m a gamer. I don’t want to go out. I go home, I play games and I stream it. What changed in my life? It wasn’t like I have to push myself or anything.
