It’s not only footballers, actors, and politicians that rake in a huge sum of money from their professions. Meet Sips, a professional video game creator who has carved out a niche for himself as a heavyweight in the gaming world. An accomplished gaming commentator at Yogscast, Sips manages a lot of channels and has worked with international gaming establishments.
The YouTuber joined Yogscast sometime in 2009 and later became the designer of its website. In all, his competence in video gaming has made him a highly sought-after personality within the gaming community and beyond.
Details of What Sips Does for a Living
Decades ago, it was stupid for one to think of making any fortune from playing video games. But Sip has proved that this is totally possible as he is a part of the growing legion of professional gamers. He is best known as a member of The Yogscast, a prominent video game publisher.
His real name is Chris Daniel Lovasz and he was born in Canada on the 5th of June 1980. Sip studied computer programming for two years at Algonquin College in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Being a veteran video gamer, Chris is a household name within the gaming community. He owes the popularity he enjoys today to his creativity, talent, and ability to relate with people of different classes.
Before he became famous, Sips did several odd jobs just to make ends meet. He reportedly worked with Canadian Tire before he made it big and became an internet sensation. While he owns about five YouTube channels, he has also created several video games including Towns, Orcs Must Die Don’t Starve, Prison Architect, Dishonored, Skyrim, and Garry’s Mod.
Chris runs a dirt production company in Minecraft known as SipsCo. He created the firm with popular YouTuber Paul Sykes, with whom he regularly plays Minecraft. His most popular YouTube channel is YogscastSips; others are Team Double Dragon, Sips, Triforce, and Sips – Live!. He has millions of people subscribed to his channels and thousands of followers on various social media platforms.
Things to Know About His Wife and Children
Chris has been married to Claudine Lovasz. Claudine, who is a year younger than Chris met him in the late ’90s and they eventually got married not long after. Apart from this, it is hard to tell anything about the woman as she has been very good at evading public scrutiny.
The little information available about his kids is gleaned from some of his podcasts and videos where he mentions them.
Every diligent member of the Yogcast community that follows Sips will know that his son is referred to as Poopfeast420. This code name came from a fan who was a consistent donor during the 2011 Christmas Livestream. In his honor, Sip began referring to his newborn son in subsequent podcasts by the name Poopfeast420. This is not his real name, it’s just a code name for Kurt who was born on the 2nd of December 2011.
Kurt has a sister named Pheobe. In a 2015 video, Sip referred to his daughter as Tobjorn. A tweet of his explained the unusual name. According to him, it was to honor the birth of the child and the launching of Overwatch on the same day.
