Like any normal teenager, RiceGum loved playing video games. After setting-up his own YouTube and Twitter account in his early teens he started posting gameplays of Call of Duty while talking about himself.
His first video upload was Mw3 Gameplay Lifestory:BabySitting:Ricegum. In November 2012, he entered in a partnership with Machinima (global YouTube gaming network). He collaborated with Mia Khalifa on Twitch stream at the age of 18.
On 8th December 2015, he uploaded his first roast video These Kids Must Be Stopped criticizing child web-stars Jacob Sartorius, Hunter Rowland and Loren Beech. In this video, he criticized these teenagers and children for posting their dance and music videos which had sexual connotations. He even enacted how his mother would react if he did such activities thus being judgmental about parenting of these child stars. The success of this video led to a series which became viral on social media. These videos received varied reactions and views from the fans and heightened his popularity.
At present, he has more than 10.2 million subscribers on YouTube and about 3.6 million Instagram followers.
RiceGum had roasted 10 year old singer, Alabama Parker, (daughter of singer Travis Parker) in his video blog stating her actions were inappropriate for her age and criticized her upbringing and lifestyle harshly. Her father and step mother reacted instantly by getting this video removed from YouTube.
Another controversy cropped-up when video blogger, Gabbi Hanna, posted a video claiming that RiceGum had physically assaulted her and destroyed her cellphone. She further went on to post a video of the wounds inflicted by RiceGum on Snapchat. Strangely this tiff led to increase in numbers of her subscribers and decrease in number of RiceGum's followers. RiceGum accepted that he trashed the cellphone but added that the wounds were actually stretch-marks. The viewers have voiced that he could have dealt with the issue in a more polite manner and that he was too caustic. Although she has not filed a legal suit but has asked for the compensation of her cellphone. Further he has been banned from Twitch for showing a BB Gun in one of his videos.
Although his mother wanted him to be a doctor, he focused more on developing an internet career. In many video posts, RiceGum states that living with parents is beneficial as one does not need to pay the rent. However, in a one of his videos posted in January 2017 he has stated that he is thinking about moving to his own place and also shared some of his preferred houses and localities.
RiceGum dated model Abby Rao. Since 2020 he has been romantically linked to Elleriemarie.
