TweaK grew up playing video games on consoles such as the GameCube and Nintendo 64. Some of his favorites included Quake, Luige’s Mansion, Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario 64, Ghost Master and Subnautica, among others. When he was older he got mor e into competitive games and fps games such as CS:GO and Call of Duty.
After high school, he went to college and attempted studying Game Design, but dropped out. He then returned to study Pharmacology but became depressed and bored doing that again. So, he dropped out of that too, after talking it over with his mom. He was not ever really into working for others either, which was one of his main motivators for starting to stream. After college, he went to work at a bakery.
He had always dreamed of going to into YouTube content creation, but it had not been lucrative when he had attempted to do it previously. However, he had enjoyed it. So, once he was done with university, he decided to attempt Twitch instead. He therefore started streaming on Twitch on August 4, 2017, which was as soon as he dropped out of university.
He discovered Escape from Tarkov soon after he started streaming during one of his Diablo III broadcasts, when another Irish streamer called ‘PeeBro’ came into his chat and started asking him whether he wanted to pursue streaming as a career. When TweaK answered that he was, PeeBro recommended that he play something else, as Diablo III was dead on Twitch. So, he invited TweaK to play Escape from Tarkov with him. TweaK decided to do so and has been maining it ever since.
