Early Life and Online Beginnings
Very little is known about Julian’s life before his rise to fame online. There are no details regarding his childhood, family, and education, but it’s known that he gained a strong interest in YouTube at a young age and often watched videos. Around this time, numerous YouTubers were already making it big both in popularity and in income. He created his own account in 2014, but never really thought of creating content on the website.
YouTube is a video sharing website and is one of the most popular websites in the world, ranked by Alexa Internet as the second most popular in the internet. It was created as an idea by three former PayPal employees and was later bought by Google for a value of $1.65 billion. It has become one of the biggest sources of video media including live streams, movie trailers, documentaries, video clips, video blogs (vlogs), and many more. Its popularity has even led to numerous companies investing in their own channels for exposure and the chance to earn extra income as well.
Nearly a year later, Julian decided to begin making his own YouTube videos after he started playing “Animal Jam”, an online game created by WildWorks in 2010 in collaboration with the National Geographic Society. It has become one of the fastest growing online children’s properties in the world, with over 160 million registered players. In the game, they learn about various zoological facts through the game’s features which include social interactions, parties, mini-games, and adventures. The popularity of the game even led to merchandise such as books, figurine toys, and a subscription box.
It also recently expanded its reach to include accessibility to mobile devices including smartphones and tablets. There are also other apps based on “Animal Jam”, and one of the most popular is “Play Wild” which is a 3D version of the game. Other games that are based on “Animal Jam” include “AJ Jump”, “Dash Tag”, and “Tunnel Town”. The game takes place in a fictional area known as Jamaa with various biomes and customizable animals. Many animals were added to the game after launch, and players can also customize their own dens using furniture, artwork, and the like.
Rise and Decline
Over the next few years, Julian would create consistent content about “Animal Jam” which would increase his followership significantly, until he gained over 200,000 subscribers; he uploaded on a regular basis and posted videos several times a week. Some of his most popular videos gained over 500,000 views, and it mainly covered unusual items about the game such as glitches, getting suspended, and trading in the game. He continued making content until 2018, and then took a long break from making videos. Many of his followers believed that he was quitting the game, and he confirmed that he had stopped making videos a few months later through a video, telling his fans why he was leaving YouTube.
