Drew Gooden’s Biography (Age)
Drew Gooden was born in Orlando, Florida in the United States of America on October 26, 1993. He has decided not to reveal the names of his parents, siblings or share any information about his private life and upbringing before he became an online sensation. It wasn’t until recently that he began to share just pictures taken with his parents – sending greetings to them on fathers’ or mothers’ days, or on special occasions such as their birthdays.
He has also chosen not to disclose details of his educational accomplishments with the general public at all. Hence, details of the schools he attended in the past – if he did at all and other personal information such as the course he studied in college are not available in the public domain.
