Doug Walker was born on 17 November 1981 in Naples, Italy as his father was in the US Navy and was stationed there at the time of his birth – his zodiac sign is Scorpio and he holds American nationality.

Doug moved more than 10 times during his childhood, and became interested in movies at a very early age, as he started to dislike having to find new friends every time his family moved – he found comfort in his TV, and decided to become an actor one day; he was a member of his high school’s drama club. Upon matriculation in 1999, he enrolled at Northern Illinois University, from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications.

He launched his first YouTube channel – “Nostalgia Critic” – in 2007, then on 10 July 2014 launched his current channel, “Channel Awesome” – there are over 1.2 million people currently subscribed to it, while the channel counts nearly 900 million views of all Doug’s videos combined. Doug is best known for his comedy review series “Nostalgia Critic”, which he launched on 3 July 2007 – his first episode was reviewing the movie “Transformers”, but many of the episodes he uploaded in 2007 were removed by YouTube due to copyright infringement. On 10 August 2008, he launched another series – “The Search for the Nostalgia Chick” – to find himself a female co-host, and Lindsay Ellis won the ‘competition’.

Some of the other series Doug has created are “Atop the Fourth Wall”, “The Angry Joe Show” and “Todd in the Shadows”. On 6 January 2011, he received the Mashable Award for Entrepreneur of the Year.
