We are Stephen “Snoopeh” Ellis and David “StoneMountain64” Steinberg: a former Pro League of Legends Player and a gaming content creator. We are building Pipeline — a new community for streamers to turn their passion into a career. Ask us anything!
I was formerly one of the top League of Legends players in the world, captaining my team to 3rd place in the world championships and competing in over 40 countries. In the past few years, I was working at Facebook to lead their entry into building a live-streaming platform for gaming creators.
David, formerly in finance, was working a full-time 7-5 job while uploading gaming content to YouTube. He has since quit that job and transitioned to a streaming career on Facebook with over 3.5M followers across those platforms. Seen as a role model within the content creation community, he’s been eager to find a way to help content creators at scale.
We’ve been heads-down building Pipeline for the past six months, curating over a decade of knowledge to provide a roadmap for streamers to follow. We’re committed to bringing streamers together in one place to help them through the rollercoaster that is building a part-time or full-time career in streaming.
We wanted to run this AMA to talk about what we’ve learned in building a career in gaming, answering any questions you might have about our journey, our own careers, what we had for breakfast, or anything else that comes to your mind that we can answer!
Excited to dive in with you for the next few hours! ❤
