He even became a part of the Olympic Development Program of his state, in which the best athletes train to become potential candidates for the Olympic team. While he was unsuccessful in that regard, he gained a lot of experience from his involvement. After matriculating from high school, he took up courses in Analytic Philosophy and Biochemistry, though he did not specify the university he studied in, but spent most of his youth in Scottsdale, Arizona.
In 2015, Trainwreckstv discovered the potential for a career while playing video games, through the online platform Twitch. The platform began in 2011 as a spin-off from the general streaming platform Justin.tv, but focused on live streaming video games. It later surpassed its predecessor ,with the former shutting down to give more focus to the rising fame of Twitch. The platform has become the main source of broadcasts of eSports competitions, and has recently implemented other types of streaming, such as IRL streams on which the streamer usually chats or communicates with viewers.
The website has become highly popular, becoming the fourth largest source of internet traffic in the US. The service was acquired in 2014 by Amazon for $970 million, and was later integrated with the company’s subscription service called Amazon Prime. Twitch also acquired Curse, which allowed streamers to receive commissions through sales of the games they play. Late in 2018, the website reported having over 15 million users active on the website daily. They also have over 2.2 million broadcasters, and an average of a million concurrent users.
Like most popular streamers, Trainwreckstv isn’t focused on a particular game, but instead plays a variety depending on his interest and offers made by gaming companies. In recent months he’s been playing a lot of auto battler games, which stemmed from a popular mod of “Dota 2” called “Dota Auto Chess”. He plays the “League of Legends” version of the auto battler called Teamfight Tactics (TFT), which was launched in 2019. In the game, eight players draft from a pool of powerful champions, deploy them on the board and then battle to try and become the last player standing.
In recent months, he’s also been doing a lot of chatting, and in real life streams. He mostly does it to communicate with his fans, viewing memes, videos, websites, and just interacting in general. He also hosts a podcast through his streams, which is a collaboration with other popular streamers. Another game he plays a lot is “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds”, an online multiplayer battle royale game, in which 100 players parachute onto an island to try and find equipment to battle with others, while avoiding getting killed. Over time, the play area gets reduced, leading to limited space and a higher chance of confrontations.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, it is known that Trainwreckstv is in a relationship with former streamer and social media personality Kayla, also named Felissetv. She is known for streaming various popular multiplayer games such as “Overwatch”, but was banned from Twitch a few years ago due to toxic behavior. Since then, she’s mostly been in the background supporting Trainwreckstv though she has appeared in a few of his streams from time to time.
