The Meteoric Rise to Stardom
David took up science and math when he entered 11th Grade as his parents wanted him to become a dentist or doctor. However, he wasn’t interested in those careers and his scores by then were reflecting a disinterest in academics. It is at that time that he came across something that transformed his life. In the summer before he joined college, he got “addicted” to YouTube videos, spending most of his time watching and subscribing to channels. Though he used to make videos with his friends in high school, he didn’t upload them on any platform. It was in 2009 that he first created his YouTube channel and began uploading videos. One day he stumbled upon a makeup tutorial video of ‘Juicystar07’, and the idea of creating a parody of makeup tutorials struck him. He uploaded several parodies of ‘Michelle Phan’ and ‘Bubzbeauty’ and was surprised by the response: people loved it! Thus, he found passion in making people laugh, which he continues even today. He also uploads challenge videos with a group named ALBOE (A Little Bit of Everything). He regularly uploads vlogs and has over 530 videos on his YouTube channel till date.

Behind The Curtains

As a child, David was frail and had high fevers on and off; fortunately as he grew he gained good health. He was a very bright student in elementary and middle school. His parents enrolled him into a piano class in his teens, but out of lack of interest he left the following year. In elementary school, he used to be teased and called ‘balloon head’. His favorite part of school was middle and high school as he had plenty of friends. Life changed as he moved into higher secondary. When he had to select science and math as his stream, his dozen friends reduced to only one, Sean, and education became tough. He completed his college, but he was more inclined towards YouTube and took it up full time. He has never mentioned about having a sibling. His girlfriend is Nhi, and she features in quite a few of his videos, the most popular being ‘Girlfriend Does My Makeup Challenge’. The two seem to be deeply in love and they share a great rapport.
