IamA Professional YouTuber & gamer, known as Drift0r, here to answer your questions about making a living playing games, YouTube, streaming, or anything else so AMA!
Hello, I'm a professional gamer / YouTuber in the sense that I quit my real job and instead make a living playing games. I got two degrees in college (Mechanical Engineering and then MBA) but gave up on both career paths for gaming instead. I've been making gaming content on YouTube since 2010, or just about the whole time it has been a thing. I've seen it all from the big networks, from old media, from subtle marketing online, and more. Currently, I'm getting more involved in pro gaming since that seems to be the wave of the future. If you want to get into this businesses/lifestyle or want to know more about it then feel free to ask. Also, this AMA was set up by Victoria so be sure to thank her ;)
