He attended a local high school in Los Angeles and was physically very active while there, as he was playing football, soccer, and lacrosse. He went on to enroll at college but after realizing a degree was not something he wanted, he quit and worked several jobs to support himself, while on his way up on the Internet.
Career as a YouTuber
He continued playing video games over the years, and eventually chose to focus on fighting games for his YouTube channel.
Maximilian launched his YouTube channel on 25 May 2007, which as of early 2020 counts over 1.2 million subscribers and almost 650 million views combined of all his video. He first gained recognition after he uploaded his “Marvel vs. Capcom 3’: Maximilian’s ‘The Online Warrior’ Episode 1 Pt-1” video in 2011. The match-making comedy videos helped him gain more subscribers, then in the first half of 2012, he uploaded the first video of his “Assist Me!” series, in which he talked about key elements of frame data and about how to avoid dying while playing a fighting game.
For this series of videos, Maximilian received several awards from all around the world.
After the success of “Assist Me!”, Maximilian went on to work on his “Boss Rage!” series, and uploaded the first video in 2013, killing the final boss in the “Killer Instinct” video game called Eyedol, while he also beat other games such as “Marvel vs. Capcom 3”, “Bio F.R.E.A.K.S.” and “Mortal Kombat 9”. His most recent series is “Git Gud”, which is about teaching people how to play fighting games, while also helping them choose a good game.
In 2015 he won the honorary Cannon Award and as he is a huge fan of commentary videos, he was invited to serve as the commentator for the Top 8 finals of the EVO 2014-2016 “Killer Instinct” tournament. He also served as a host for the “Killer Instinct” World Cup in 2016 and 2017.
Love life and relationships
Many websites on the internet write about Maximilian being a single man, which isn’t accurate as he has talked about his wife on several occasions, while she has also been featured in some of his videos.
He met Jessica while he was working at an electronic boutique which Jessica occasionally visited. She was intrigued by artworks she saw hanging on the boutique’s walls, and learned from Maximilian that it was actually his artwork, and that is how the two began chatting. At the time, Maximilian was working and studying and did not ask Jessica out, but they exchanged numbers and were good friends for over a year before going on a date, and eventually marrying sometime in the 2000’s.
Maximilian admitted in one of his videos that he was scared of marriage, as he has a friend who divorced his wife not long after they married, while he also believed his wife wouldn’t like him playing games that often, however, his wife is also a big fan of video games, and the two are apparently getting along well.
Likes, dislikes, and other interests
Maximilian is a huge fan of the film industry, and although he was not a fan of Nicholas Cage at first, after people kept telling him they are lookalikes, he became interested in watching Nicholas’ movies, and has since become a fan.
Some of the other actors and actresses whose movies he enjoys watching are Tom Hanks, Russell Crowe, and Natalie Portman, while some of his favorite films are “Gone in 60 Seconds”, “Gladiator”, and the “Harry Potter” franchise among numerous others.
In his free time, Maximilian enjoys being outdoors, walking, running or cycling around the city and meeting new people. He is a very social person, and as he believes meeting people from other cities and countries is almost the same as to travel, he is active on several networks which have been created for connecting people, such as Tinder, Couchsurfing, and Warm Showers.
Maximilian has an irrational fear of spiders – arachnophobia – the oldest and one of the most common phobias in the world. He is a lover of all other animals, especially dogs, and has a pet dog named Benny who can occasionally be seen featured in his videos on YouTube.
On 16 September 2016, Maximilian was live streaming on Twitch while playing the “For Honor” video game, and during his stream he yelled ‘THE CHINGER! CHAGGER! N*GGER! DAGGER!’.
