SwankyBox (Brad) is an Ohio-based YouTuber who runs a gaming-focused channel. By trade he is an animator, videographer, and writer, but nerdy online video is what he’s most passionate about. He recently wrote a book about YouTube called The YouTuber Journey in which he outlines the path all YouTubers follow when starting a creative career online. It’s a guidebook for the next generation of content creators. On his channel he covers a wide variety of topics—from gaming mysteries to nostalgic gaming memories. He is a very avid gamer who grew up living in the worlds that games had to offer. Instead of exploring outside, he often dove headfirst into the worlds of video games to fulfill his sense of travel and exploration when he was younger. Now that is he is older, he loves sharing those experiences with the world and empowering the younger generation to chase their dreams.
