About Me

Hi. I'm Jeff.


This is what I look like when I'm not streaming video games.


I grew up in Florida in an area where nothing much happens. I started my love for entertainment when I was 3, playing on an Apple II in an attic of an old red house in Flint, Michigan, when I don't remember much of anything. I was playing Logo Turtle, some version of a programming language I didn't quite understand. But that was my precursor into video games, and I moved from an Apple II (Carmen San Diego, Transylvania, and many others that would run for about 5 seconds before crashing), to a 386 DOSShell computer, a 486, a Pentium 120, NES, SNES, you get the idea. It's just been a part of me for a long time.

I currently reside in Southern California in a dinky studio apartment that I can afford. I moved out here originally for motion picture, but I decided that business route might be best on the backburner for now. I'd rather find something well-rounded in entertainment, and I've seen how the business works so I can operate in it if my interests realign with it.

I started streaming video games in July of 2013 and, with my background in motion picture along with my love for video games, it basically was something I really enjoyed. My studio is basically a bed, chair, kitchen, and extreme power-heavy entertainment center with stuff I've collected over the years. I'm not one to obsess over video games or making money from it—I honestly think I would hate taking a pastime of mine and turning it into a main source of revenue. Once you introduce money into something, you introduce politics, especially when relationships are a key factor.

So I do my thing, I learn from it, and if there's some money in it, well I celebrate. I've been involved in a number of different projects which include journalism, marketing, analytics, PR, a lot of different stuff. I just like getting my hands dirty while I keep my day job. I also do social media for Twitch Los Angeles, the official meetup group for Twitch based in LA. I'm also a member of Stack-Up, which is a veterans' gaming organization. I myself am not a veteran, but I support them in many ways.

That's it for now; stop by the stream some time. I appreciate it!

How to Tell if Someone is Viewbotting (and other malicious things)

There's an aspect of livestreaming video games that gets under my skin a bit. Viewbotting. A lot of streamers have done it in the past. In fact, I once caught someone viewbotting and looked at who the bots were "following." A laundry list of very familiar names showed up, many partnered accounts on Twitch with millions of followers. Well-known streamers making a living. It's definitely abused a lot on streaming platforms, sort of the "black hat" method of livestreaming. Thankfully, nobody I saw listed from those bot accounts was any streamer that I was supporting. I don't bother supporting anyone trying to find "get partnership quick" methods. If you want to build a business out of streaming video games , then please don't bother viewbotting. You'll eventually find you wasted your money and your community will likely abandon you. However, if you feel that someone is viewbotting, here's a few ways you can tell someone is

Mutazione: An Interesting Adventure Game Published by Akupara Games

Mutazione by Akupara Games I'm vaguely reminded of Gabriel Garcia Marquez and his wacky tales with  Mutazione , an interesting adventure game from Akupara Games and developer Die Gute Fabrik. I recently  livestreamed it on twitch  for a few nights and had some remarks about it.    Marquez's largest narrative device was magical realism, and that's what you'll see in a lot of  Mutazione.  Magical realism is a concept where supernatural events happen in the natural world. A lot of that happens in this game, which tells the story of a girl (Kai) that visits a strange island in response to a sick relative's request. That's about as realistic as the game is because once Kai arrives on the island, she's greeted by friendly mutants, humanoid beings, and plants that do a lot more than just decorate the island. The backstory is that a giant meteor hit the island and affected the lives of everyone, changing humans into mutants over the course of many years. Most of the

Cyberpunk 2077: What Else Are We Talking About?

CyberPunk 2077: Meeting My Expectations I avoided the hype. Stuck to what I understood about CD Projekt Red. Recognized that this was an 8.5 year development. Didn't stick to the lore. And admittedly, Cyberpunk 2077 met my expectations which, to be transparent, weren't all that high. The first demo I saw at E3 was arguably the worst demo I've ever seen—unresponsive AI, a crash mid-demo, and a poorly-matched pair of people representing the game—and so I felt a lot of problems might carry forth into the finished game. Whether or not I could stream the game on Twitch was also a concern, because if a game is going to launch poorly, you won't be getting much of an audience either. Sure enough, Cyberpunk 2077 launched unfinished. 8.5 years is a long time for a single release, and at that point, you have to wonder what's cooking in the kitchen. But I'll approach the most important question about the game that's on a lot of peoples'
