I am 26 years old and live in Wisconsin. I love so many things related to gaming that it’s hard to keep track of sometimes! I love video games, board games, wargames, strategy games, and role playing games.
My other hobbies include photography, producing music, and miniature painting. I’m not great at team sports but I do love paintball, airsoft, snowboarding, and frisbee golf. I drink lots of coffee and stay up way too late.
This whole Chief Live Gaming venture started in August of 2013 when I was in a motorcycle accident. Due to the accident, I was forced to drop out of college and take time off from work while I recovered. It was during this ample amount of free time that I started brainstorming ideas for my own gaming community driven around teaching and spreading information.
I began with a livestream on Twitch.tv. I love streaming but the time commitment proved to be too much for me to keep up with on a regular basis. I found that I had a much better time posting tutorial videos and walkthroughs on Youtube.
Eventually the idea came to me to try to incorporate Chief Live Gaming into something that could help support me financially. The first step was a Patreon account. This allowed me to accept a monthly pledge from viewers while giving them perks at the same time, all without sacrificing my content quality!
I followed up with an Ebay store. I launched the storefront to sell some handmade items that I make to augment wargames and tabletop RPGs that I play regularly, most notably Warhammer 40,000. I figured that this would be another great way for people to help support me while also getting something in return.
I have also started dabbling in commission miniature painting. I love painting miniatures and it blows my mind sometimes that people want to buy some of my work! I currently post all my painted minis to Ebay, but my goal is to be able to take requests and commissions in the near future.
