Ross Kemp on Gamers, but with hair. Mister Survival.
For the past two years I was in my room making YouTube videos as a hobby and a labour of love. I had many late nights editing, hosting Lets Plays and streams for charity, and trying my best to make content that others may find entertaining. After hundreds of videos uploaded, I was lucky enough to obtain a role as a Video Producer, and become part of a great team at GameSpot.com. After only being in the industry for 3 months, being nominated for a GMA came as a surprise, but I hope it’s a sign of great things to come.
