name is Jerome, but most people call me Sk1ny. Born in Louisiana but live in NC currently. I started on Twitch on June 4th, 2012, took a 2-year break from 2014-2016 and came back to streaming since June 4th, 2016, (4-year anniversary). The games that I play are honestly all over the place except sports games. I own every platform, (x360, X1, Ps4 Pro, Switch, Wii U, PC), so I'm more of a variety streamer. My fame came from back in the day where I'm still the only streamer on Twitch to stream a 1,000-win streak in any game. This one being CoD: Modern Warfare 2. I also starting to go to events, so I definitely ask to see where I'll end up next.
Sk1nyMan streams Super Smash Brothers Ultimate, Overwatch, Halo, and Call of Duty starting at 9 pm and running until 1 am daily. His stream has been viewed over 1.2 million times since he began streaming in 2012. He has completed challenges such as streaming daily for 365 days, while regularly attending local fighting game tournaments as well as national events.

I love playing video games and want to make it a full-time job. My overall goal is to make a living off playing video games. I love hanging out with other people who play video games because the gaming community is super friendly. I go to as many gaming conventions and local tournaments as I can to network and have fun. This is my dream job and I will do anything I can to make sure I make it to the top!
