Football, Hockey & Basketball
As a child, Ninja explored his father’s computer games and found much success with Earth Worm Jim. When he was 12, his brother introduced him to Halo 1, which he fell in love with. His passion for gaming grew, and so did his skills.
He only began participating in Xbox online games when he saw his ranking rise among professional gamers. In 2009, he decided to also participate in professional tournaments.
Once he reached the point of making $60,000 through his streams, he quit his job and stopped attending college. He managed to keep up streaming for around six years before he dropped out for good at 20 to focus on going pro.
He had moments where he wondered whether he should switch to something else, such as when he had eye surgery and stopped streaming for more than a month, losing many viewers. But then he came across H1Z1, which was another shot in the arm for his streaming career.
His viewership rose almost immediately. Also, his exposure to H1Z1’s Battle Royal format eventually led to his involvement with Fortnite. He watched many of his streamer friends playing it and decided to try it out. It was one of his best decisions concerning his streaming career.
Ninja announced he would be ceasing his Twitch stream at the end of 2019 and transferring it to Mixer. He plans to use the opportunity to change over his content into a more mature audience-centered format.
