As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Animation Beginnings
Very little is known about Zach’s life before he gained online fame, as there are almost no details regarding his education, family, and childhood. According to him, he is from California and developed a strong interest towards art as well as animation at a young age. In 2008, he endeavored to develop his animating skills further through regular submissions to the website Newgrounds.
Newgrounds is an entertainment website which was created in 1995 and began as an in-house production company, focused on online content. The company was based in Cheltenham Township, Pennsylvania. Eventually, the company started to branch out and provided opportunities for everyone to publish their own content through their website. People could create artwork, audio, films, and gaming applications which can then be submitted online. These submissions can then be played or viewed by the audience and the website promotes user voting as well as ranking for all submissions. The company is known for its slogan “Everything, by Everyone” which started being used in 2006.
As Hadel was gaining a lot of attention through Newgrounds, he eventually decided to expand his reach through creating a channel on YouTube, which would become a popular platform to earn income, thanks to the website being owned by Google. It is a video sharing website which allows uploaders and content creators to earn advertising revenue through the Google AdSense program. It is one of the most popular websites on the internet and has become one of the biggest sources of online video content.
Videos which can be seen on the website include television show clips, documentaries, trailers video blogs (vlogs), live streams, original videos, and more. He started his account by posting comedic content often incorporating his art and animation skills. His parodies of popular films and pop culture topics helped his rise to fame significantly. He also gained a lot of attention for his animation videos, which focused on the video game “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” which was released in 2011. It is a role playing game in which players go on a quest to defeat a dragon prophesied to destroy the world.
Other Projects and Recent Endeavors
Zach’s most popular videos have gained millions of views – one of his most popular projects was the animated series called “Hellbenders”, which he wrote and animated, and starred popular online persona OneyG, who is also known for his animated work. He then joined the SleepyCabin podcast, which involved him alongside several other popular animators. He is known for his dark humor in the podcast, often referencing somewhat taboo topics such as the Holocaust and the Nazi regime. He also shares his knowledge regarding pop culture, politics, history, and film through the podcast.
Many of his followers noticed that he has a nasally sounding voice which is natural; several of his fans believe that he was born with a deviated septum, which could be the cause of his stuffy and nasally voice. He has appeared in a few videos with his friends, but makes it a point to avoid showing his appearance, only doing so a few times. Aside from his work with the SleepyCabin, he has also written for JonTron, known for his video reviews of poorly received games, often done to a comedic end.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, not much is known in terms of Hadel’s romantic relationships. He does not divulge a lot of personal information online, preferring to keep many aspects away from the public. He has given a few insights into his life thanks to his podcast work, stating multiple times that he has German heritage, hence his jokes regarding Germans. His animation style is often noted for its use of exaggerated expressions and figures.
