CohhCarnage Biography

CohhCarnage thought that the Hawaiian name ‘Ko’ sounded cool and wanted to use it as his user name. However, EverQuest required a username of minimally 4 letters, so he applied an onomatopoeia. The second part of his name comes from his time as a member of a guild called ‘Carnage’.

GAMING ORIGINS
During University, CohhCarnage was part of a guild called ‘Carnage.’ A new video game came out called Defiance that he really wanted to show them, so he opened a Twitch channel so that he could stream his gameplay and show them how great it was. He started becoming well known well he was playing Defiance, and one day he decided to post that he would be streaming his gameplays on Twitch. Suddenly, he found that many people were going to watch his channel. His channel slowly began to grow from there. Over time, he took suggestions from his viewers on how to improve his channel and eventually developed an entire team dedicated to enhancing his streams.

PROFESSIONAL GAMING
Prior to streaming, Cohh was studying Game Design at Full Sail University. He started streaming as a hobby and even started a video game design studio, Nectar Studios, while there. However, he had been streaming as a hobby on the side, and when that took off, he decided to drop out of University to focus on his streaming career. Nevertheless, he maintained his studio and plans to release his game on Kickstarter in the future.

This had been his goal in taking his degree at university, but he discovered that the majority of his courses were not helping him to further his goal in actually creating his own game. This factor, combined with his streaming career providing him with the means to actually fund the creation of his game, both influenced his decision to not resume his course. However, his company dissolved in August 2017, and he decided to focus completely on his streaming career.
