Giantwaffle spent his childhood in Chicago with his older brother and sister – they were raised by their software architect dad and their mother who is a nurse. Giantwaffle began playing video games for the first time when he was 10 years old – the first game he tried was “Halo”, and he immediately fell for it.
18 -> 26. Been an interesting time finding my life passion this last decade. Lots of ups and downs with many life lessons learned. Wouldn’t trade any of it. Couldn’t be happier with where I am and the people I surround myself with. To 2020 and onward. <# pic.twitter.com/3bvDsj76g4

He also had company, as his friends were fans of the game and they played it together. After “Halo”, Giantwaffle started playing “Minecraft”, “StarCraft”, and “World of Warcraft”, and was hooked by these games as well. He wasn’t very sociable during the years he spent at high school, as he preferred to stay home and play video games. However, he was also physically active, as he was interested in gymnastics, which he started doing in elementary school and continued in high school – his most popular video on YouTube was also the first one he launched, entitled “Gymnastics Accident”.
After he matriculated from high school, Giantwaffle decide to focus on his career online rather than pursue a college degree, and he put it aside for two years – he later enrolled at North Carolina State University, and is now majoring in electrical engineering.
Career of a YouTuber
Giantwaffle’s career began the moment he launched his YouTube channel on 22 December 2006, with a short caption reading ‘I play a lot of games and I’m pretty bad at all of them. I mainly stream on Twitch but will soon bring more and more content to YouTube’ – there are currently more than 53,000 people subscribed to his channel, which also counts nearly two million views of all his videos combined.
He mostly uploads gameplays of “Minecraft” and plays the modded game rather than the normal. He is a lot more popular on his Twitch channel, which currently counts nearly 860,000 followers, an impressive number for Twitch – he has so far uploaded 620 videos, mostly livestreams while playing “Minecraft”, while he can also be seen playing other games such as “Team Fight” and “Call of Duty: Black Ops 4”. He has an average number of 6,000 viewers per livestream, while the biggest number of viewers he has had on a single livestream is currently 15,000. Giantwaffle is also working as the Senior Content Producer for N3RDFUSION, as he became part of their team in 2015 – he is currently living in Austin, Texas USA.
What is “Minecraft”?
Minecraft was created in 2011 by Swedish game developer Markus Persson, and was released by Mojang. The main goal in the game when it was released for the first time was to survive in the world in which zombies attack you at night. Players get to build houses, tools, and weapons from blocks in this 3D generated world while they also get to explore to find the resources needed for crafting different things.
Although the main game mode was survival in the past – meaning that you have to find all the resources on your own and fight the zombies – now it has a creative mode in which you can use all the blocks you want without having to make them first, and you can in that way make structures and be creative with them.
Some people are known to have created their entire cities in Minecraft creative mode, while another YouTuber has recently made a fully functional computer using Redstone (an item in Minecraft). Minecraft has been a very popular game since it was officially released, and has won numerous awards and accolades.
There is Minecraft merchandise being sold on the internet, numerous YouTube channels and websites show people how to make things and how to play the game, and there are also events called MineCons which are organized all over the world. Judging by statistics from mid-2019, the game has sold more than 176 million copies so far, and therefore currently holds the title of the best-selling video game of all times.
In September 2014, Microsoft bought Mojang and the Minecraft video game for $2.5 billion, and soon afterwards released the “Minecraft: Story Mode” version of the game.
Giantwaffle’s personal life and education
Giantwaffle is very secretive when it comes to his love life, as he hasn’t shared any details regarding his past and present affairs with the public. In 2015, he was rumored to be dating another YouTuber (female), who is also into gaming but is not a Twitcher – the two met through a mutual friend and went on a date as the friend insisted that they were a good match.
It seems as he was right, as the two were dating for two years before splitting in the spring of 2017 after losing passion. Although many of his fans have talked about their relationship, Giantwaffle hasn’t confirmed it himself. There are rumors currently circulating the internet that Giantwaffle is dating a girl working for the N3RDFUSION, meeting when she began working for them in 2018 – they allegedly fell for one another almost instantly and have apparently been dating for over a year now, however, this hasn’t been confirmed by Giantwaffle either.
Judging by his social media accounts and his secrecy, he currently appears to be single, hasn’t married, and doesn’t have any kids.
Hobbies and other interests
Giantwaffle spends most of his time making videos and playing video games, while he is now also working for N3RDFUSION which doesn’t leave him much time to spend outdoors. In his free time, Giantwaffle loves to watch movies, and goes to the cinema to see all the new Marvel movies, as he is a big fan of the superhero world they have created. He enjoys going for walks with his friends in a nearby park, but prefers it when they are in a pub drinking beer.
He is a lover of animals, but doesn’t have a pet as he knows he doesn’t have time to take care of one – he would love to travel but as he is somewhat addicted to video games, he cannot simply go travelling for a week or a month as his online career would suffer. Although he was into gymnastics when he was younger, he has completely lost interest in it.
Appearance and net worth
Giantwaffle is currently 25 years old. He has short brown hair, a brown beard and brown eyes, while his height and weight are not known. According to authoritative sources, his net worth as of early 2020 is estimated to be more than $300,000, and is steadily rising thanks to his Twitch and YouTube channels.
Giantwaffle is one of those very secretive people on the internet as he hasn’t shared his real name with the public – his first name is Andrew but his last name is not known, and it doesn’t seem as the popular YouTuber is planning on sharing it with his fans anytime soon.
Social media presence
Giantwaffle is quite active on several popular social media platforms, as this is very important for his career online. He launched his Twitter account in June 2012, and has gathered nearly 160,000 followers and tweeted almost 14,000 times. His Instagram account is followed by more than 1,700 people, but he’s only uploaded four pictures onto it – he has a Facebook page as well, but it is followed by only 27 people.
