Dr. Disrespect earned a fortune through streaming

Doc ventured into the streaming world and decided to pursue it full-time in 2015. He started his career at Sledgehammer Games as a community manager. He slowly climbed the corporate ladder and was later promoted to the position of a level designer.

The streamer has lent his support for designing many levels for several top-rated games. He first jumped into content creation back in 2010 and found it so amusing that he gave up on his job. The ten-years grind has earned him around 6 million dollars, and he continues to make headlines the world over.

Dr Disrespect has a spouse who goes by the name Mrs. Assassin on Instagram. The duo has settled their residence in Encinitas, CA, and has a 6-year-old daughter.

The Two-Time’s streaming career indeed picked up, but not everything was meant to happen easily. Last year, Doc got caught up in a difficult situation as the streamer suffered a permanent ban from Twitch. Despite his promising name and superstar status, the platform unceremoniously banned him for life.

Where most careers would end, Doc’s career outshined everyone who doubted him. The streamer announced his move to YouTube and later on hosted a historic stream that attracted 500k concurrent viewers.

He has never looked back ever since and doing so, he has hosted streams that included prominent names like Snoop Dogg, NBA superstar Jamal Murray, Pewdiepie, and so on.
