He has a cat named Peanut.
In 2005, when he was still in high school, RuneScape became very popular at high school. His favorite song at the time was Vertigo by U2. As he was struggling to come up with a name for himself for the game, he decided to just call himself by the song title.
Vertiigogaming grew up playing video games with his brothers, starting with Batman Returns on the Sega Genesis. He really got into video games when his grandmother got him Banjo-Kazooie for the Nintendo 64 he also enjoyed other games like Golden Eye. However, his favorite gaming growing up was The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time. Fallout 1 was his first real RPG game, and he has been a fan of the franchise ever since. He has always been a variety gamer.
He did boxing, while he was in high school.
He originally began uploading content to YouTube in 2006 on his first channel after he showed his dad a montage that he had made, and his dad encouraged him to make more. It was mainly focused on sports montages, especially boxing. It attracted millions of viewers before it was shut down for copyright infringement.
He later discovered gaming YouTubers and decided to try that out instead. So, he started loading gaming videos to his current YouTube in September 2013, starting with Chivalry. However, he only started streaming on Twitch in July 2016, because the internet had been too poor prior to that.
His language isn’t clean.
He is engaged to TankGirl.
TwitchStats puts Vertiigogaming’s Twitch sub count at over 1,750. If accurate, his starting monthly income would be $4,375 USD. This is before he consolidates it with revenue from tips, Twitch cheer bit contributions, advertisements, tiered subscriptions, merchandise sales and sponsorships. His Twitch biography states that he has received over $80,800 USD from his top 10 contributors alone.
His dad named him after Bruce Lee’s first son because he was a big fan.
[If you’re starting out with content creation,] just have fun with it. Just do what you feel you want to do. A lot of people make mistakes by maining videos that they think people want to see, rather than what they want to do. [But,] if you do what you want to do and the people enjoy it, the people that enjoy the same things that you enjoy will subscribe to you and they will watch your videos. So, don’t force yourself to do things you don’t want to do. The moment you start faking or acting in your videos, that’s when your channels not going to succeed as well as it should, and I personally have unsubscribed to big YouTubers who I think aren’t being genuine anymore.
