DRLUPO ON GETTING INTO ESPORTS

“I stream video games for a living and that’s a really weird thing to say.”

Lupo, who worked 40-hours a week as a systems engineer while also streaming 40 hours a week shares that “The behind-the-scenes prep that goes into being a Twitch personality is enormous”.

So, is there some secret to operating a Twitch account with 36 million total views and counting? “Some of its luck”, Lupo says. “But even in a world of streaming household video game titles no one had heard of a year ago, traditional entertainment principles apply. Have something to offer and be able to talk to the digital masses like you’re addressing each person directly”.
