PatD Lucky is a passionate actor who likes to play different characters in his videos, including Lucky, KO, Bestfriend, Ms. Lucky, P and Grandma Lucky, and often uses certain props like wigs to define the characters.

PatD Lucky was born on March 17, 1991, in Waldo city in Alachua County, Florida, United States. When he was in the 9th grade, he moved to Gainesville, also in Alachua County. He has four sisters and a brother on his mother’s side and two brothers on his father’s side. He and his five siblings were raised by his single mother who worked hard to provide for the family. As the youngest of six children, he was “spoiled” and became a troublemaker, so much so that he often got beaten up by his mother. At the age of seven, he met a baseball coach who later became his godfather. He is very close to his godfather and his wife, whom he also calls dad and mom, and changed his last name to that of his godfather’s when he was 18. He is a huge fan of Boosie Badazz and once, after being denied a picture with the rapper when he had come to Gainesville for a performance, he threw all his records from his collection. He is very religious and prays every night.
PatD Lucky managed to get decent grades despite paying little attention to his education as a child. He played baseball and football growing up and has stated that sports taught him to be more responsible. His brother often had seizures as a child and the local fireman who responded to their emergency calls inspired him to become a firefighter himself. After completing school graduation, he tried to get into EMT school to become a firefighter, but got declined three times before being accepted. Around the time, he served as a PE coach after school, worked with mentally challenged kids, and was also a manager at a Dunkin' Donuts. He next got a job as a patient transport supervisor in a hospital, which was his last job before social media success.
