In 2012, I made a blog about exploring the outdoors called NC Nature News when I was 12 years old. At its peak, the blog had 29 readers!
In 2016, my blog eventually rebranded into a website known as "GoHerping", named after the act of catching reptiles and amphibians.
By 2017, YouTube became my primary platform as I had always loved the idea of becoming a fulltime YouTuber. Reptiles have been the focus of videos since then, with over 450 uploads, 60,000,000 views and a community of 500,000 subscribers.
In 2018, I co-created Emerald Scales, a company rehabilitating, rehoming and selling reptiles online. I've since acquired it and, with the help of others, found over 500 animals new homes.
As of 2021, I still live in North Carolina. My primary focuses are YouTube and expanding Emerald Scales.
I love Tesla, vinyl wrapping, virtual reality, personal finance, minimalism and Adventure Time. One may say I'm a fanboy of Elon Musk, Pendleton Ward, ODESZA and PewDiePie :)
