SwankyBox is an Ohio-based YouTuber who runs a gaming-focused channel. By trade he is an animator, videographer, writer, and web designer, but nerdy online video is what he’s most passionate about. On his channel he covers a wide variety of topics – from gaming mysteries to nostalgic gaming memories. He has a level-focused series on his channel called Pixel Portals as well. Pixel Portals is a series highlighting memorable environments in video games and the lore behind them. These videos include why these areas were particularly special to him, and sometimes musings about what he would do for fun in these places.

YouTube aside, SwankyBox is a very avid gamer who grew up living in the worlds that games had to offer. Instead of exploring outside, he often dove headfirst into the worlds of video games to fulfill his sense of travel and exploration when he was younger. Now that is he is older, he loves sharing those experiences with the world and empowering the younger generation to chase their dreams.
