Childhood and education
Brutalmoose spent his entire childhood in Texas with his parents but he doesn’t really talk about them as he prefers to keep his personal matters to himself. He hasn’t talked about his early life and teenage years either, but a bit is known about his childhood – he is said to have started playing video games at a very young age, and no matter how hard his parents tried, they weren’t able to make him go outside and spend time with other kids as he only wanted to play video games.
He didn’t play games alone, as he had support from his sister who occasionally played with him – even though he loved playing video games, he never thought that he might actually make a career out of it one day.
After he matriculated from high school, Brutalmoose enrolled at college and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Radio, Television, and Film, and then moved to Washington to pursue his gaming career.
Career of a YouTuber
Brutalmoose’s career began the moment he launched his YouTube channel on 12 June 2010 with the description ‘I’m just making videos about stuff I like’ – there are over 550,000 people currently subscribed to his channel which also counts more than 104 million views of all his videos combined.
Brutalmoose started by uploading videos in which he was reviewing old PC video games – these were quite popular, but the YouTuber eventually became bored with this, and decided to do something else. He can now mostly be seen doing satirical food reviews – he is one of those YouTubers who don’t upload videos very often, but rather only one or two every month. He is currently very good with a couple of other YouTubers including PeanutButterGamer, Caddicarus, Chatronic, and Space Hamster.
Besides YouTube, Brutalmoose can also be seen livestreaming on the Twitch platform – his channel currently counts nearly 40,000 followers and more than 450,000 views of all his livestreams combined. On Twitch, Brutalmoose is focused on playing video games, and the one he is currently focused on is “American Truck Simulator”.
Brutalmoose is also the creator and part of the video game reviewing group called “Hiddenblock”.
Brutalmoose’s shows on YouTube
Brutalmoose has created a couple of shows on his YouTube channel while most of these are already shut down – these include:
- “Televoid” – the series he launched in March 2016 and during which he covers old TV programs and educational VHS movies – it counts only six episodes so far;
- “Lighting Round” is the series in which Brutalmoose will try to explain numerous video games in only two minutes or less;
- “Top 5” is the series on which Brutalmoose is still working as he can always find something to rate – some of the most popular videos in this series include “Top 5 Minigames”, “Top 5 Edutainment Games”, and “Top 5 Time Consuming Games”;
- “Ian and Friend” – in this series, Brutalmoose uses Skype to talk to other YouTubers about numerous things. It only counts three episodes in which he talked to PeanutButterGamer, Yungtown, and Greg Wilmot;
- And “Brutalfoods” series during which he shows his fans how to prepare a meal, or he is simply eating a meal which was already prepared by him or someone else.
It appears that he is currently mostly focused on the latter series as it is his most popular one.
Love life and relationships
Brutalmoose fits into the category of YouTubers who are very secretive when it comes to their love lives, as he hasn’t shared any details of any girlfriends or boyfriends he might have gone out with. He avoids to talk about his current relationship status and even though his fans have been asking him about his love life during his livestreams, he seems to not be interested in responding to their questions. They also ask him about a mysterious male YouTuber who he is currently said to be dating, but once again Brutalmoose has remained silent on the topic – however, his fans have noticed the surprise on his face when they mentioned the man as he was probably thinking ‘how do they know about that?’
As he hasn’t addressed the topic himself, Brutalmoose currently appears to be single, hasn’t married, and doesn’t have any kids.
Is he gay?
Brutalmoose is as gay as he can be, and doesn’t have a problem admitting it as his fans already know that, but he doesn’t talk about the men he’s dated before, nor about whether or not he is currently seeing anyone.
Hobbies and interests

He loves to listen to music, especially rock and old rock bands while his favorite group is Queen – he is said to have been very hurt when Freddie Mercury passed away.

Thank you so much for even considering it! I’m a one man show, and supporting me here on Patreon not only supports my review content, but also my Televoid videos, streaming, and even other video content I’m working on that’s not yet out in the wild. It makes a big difference for me!’
Social media presence
