“I started streaming in the past year. I first started by streaming through the Twitch app on Playstation and eventually moved to use a capture card and PC. This took a little bit of time as I pieced together my parts for my PC as they went on sale, didn't have that much extra money to spend. During this time I researched what was best for streaming and the different methods more experienced streamers used. At first, it was intimidating there was so much to this world I didn't know, but as I streamed more it has become more natural.” - RunninBull
“I started streaming to get more comfortable with public speaking. Streaming is one of the hardest performance mediums on the planet: There is no physical audience in the room to bounce energy off, and all the pressure is on you. I love the challenges that streaming presents as well as the people I've met through streaming! I love playing interactive community games and diving into performance art on my Twitch channel!” - MikkiMarvel

About MajorLinux (Marcus Summers)
I am a gamer who was mostly playing for fun. I am now looking to change that. For years now, I have been building up to go on my own. After being in the IT field for over 10 years (yes, I know that's not a lot), with the jobs that I have, the places I have been, and the people I have learned from and taught, I feel like it's time to spread my wings and fly. This is the reason that MajorsHouse.com exists. It was a place where I can talk about gaming and tech, but also take what I've learned as a content creator and help those trying to break into space or take it to the next level!
About RunninBull (Charles Alvarado)
I grew up in the small town of Mt. Olive and now currently live in Raleigh. I went to ECU and graduated in IT because the Pokemon Master wasn't an official job. The first system I ever played was the Super Nintendo and never would have imagined gaming would be where it is. I picked up streaming within this past year and slowly building up. I always enjoyed playing games with other people watching and talking.
