Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Hudak is a former musician and popular YouTuber that took his take at content creation. Growing up he always had a huge liking for inspiring others and building a name around himself. Firstly, he started making music to release his feelings and allow others to relate. Hudak created an audience and cult like following in the music industry with hit singles like “Everyday” and “Edge” amassing millions of streams on all platforms.
Music wasn’t all he wanted to do though, and when the opportunity came he had to take it. Since early 2010, he watched as YouTuber’s made a living for themselves and created content that others loved. Although music was fun and he still continues to enjoy and do it, he took YouTube on fully in the early summer of 2023. With a good start his first few videos garnished thousands of views and his subscribers only went up. Everything looked as if it was going well but he hit his first roadblock.
Hudak, when creating videos realized the time it took and had to put aside activities he loved to keep up with the demand for his videos. Viewers began pouring into his streams, and editing videos took hours. When in the industry if there is supply there will be a demand, and Hudak knew this. Within the first few months of starting YouTube, he has already earned himself over 14,000 subscribers, and has even admitted he wasn’t putting full effort in. Within the next few months he’s planning to keep going more and more, hoping to reach 100,000 subscribers and make a substantial living for himself in a year.
Hudak was inspired by other creators that stream and make content about the very popular game Fortnite. He stated, “I was always playing that game when I was younger, and just wanted to tap in and see how it was doing this summer”. When he realized one of the in game cosmetics he owned was valued and loved by the Fortnite community. “I knew if people loved and looked out for the skin I had, people would follow me to see how I had it and what I do”. Hudak was correct as his fanbase for YouTube was a steady success and only kept going.
Within the next few years, Hudak plans to have around one million subscribers on YouTube and a decent following on TikTok and other socials. He streams every week with an average of 100 all the way to 1,000 concurrent viewers, and is grinding to make thousands of dollars alone from his content creation career. We also asked Hudak what others thought of his career change and plans, he said this, “A lot of people think i’m just playing a kids game and that i’m still childish. But what they don’t realize is i’m doing it to entertain others while bringing nostalgia, and with how the world is today, I can make great money doing it.” This stuck us as unique as times really have changed and many people in their late teens and twenties are making millions of dollars by simply entertaining others.
