We interviewed ESO to tell us a little bit about him and what he’s looking forward to doing at PAX East 2017.
My channel is mainly about the Elder Scrolls and Fallout series though I’ve recently started live streaming other requested games.
How did you get started on YouTube? What was your inspiration for starting a channel?
In short, I’ve always enjoyed helping people and entertaining. When I started YouTube properly I also started a university course art and design here in the UK, I convinced my parents (somehow) I needed a Alienware laptop. I’d spend all my time designing and working on video guides for Skyrim. I then went on to do a degree in architecture, this is what I wanted to do as a full time job. After reaching 400,000 subscribers I left the safety of my dream job working at a prestigious architecture practice and instead decided to focus on the YouTube dream. Nothing can compare to the feeling I get for each thank you comment.
What has been the biggest change in your life since becoming a YouTuber?
To be honest my life hasn’t really changed that much, I live in an apartment with my girlfriend and I can afford the luxury of a Friday night takeaway. What my YouTube audience has given me is the financial freedom to have 100% creativity over my content and that’s all I’ve ever wanted; to just create meaningful, funny, helpful content for people and not need to worry about supporting myself and loved ones.
What’s your favourite video (that you created)?
That’s a tricky one… I’m sure most people know me for my guides and build videos. But personally I’m really enjoying creating live content where I get to interact with my audience!
What do you want to say to the people watching your channel?
What I tell them every video! Thanks for watching! But guys, thanks for making this dream possible!
Is this your first time attending PAX?
This is my first Pax, gaming event and time to America. I’m ecstatic.
What are you most looking forward to seeing/doing at PAX?
I’m looking forward to experiencing EVERYTHING!
