His mother’s profession is unknown, but they get along pretty well. He’s also close to his three brothers.
After DrLupo finished his university studies, he served as a social worker.
How Did DrLupo Get Started Gaming?
As a young boy, DrLupo was always captivated by technology, which led him to discover video games. His father noticed his passion for them and got him a Super Nintendo when he was 5.
One of the first games he played was The Hunt for Red October.
At 13, he discovered more such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) and World of Warcraft (WoW).
DrLupo created time to play video games with his pals even in college. Halo was on their list of favorites.
DrLupo joined Twitch in 2013. Back then, his goal was to garner more experience in Diablo, a role-playing video game that was still pretty popular. He would stream it part-time when he didn’t have many work-related tasks to complete.
The initial release of Destiny in 2017 was the push DrLupo needed to stream more often. He was so perfect at playing this game that most people in the gaming universe recognized him for it.
And while wallowing in his rising fame, he also took the initiative to help other gamers navigate the Trials of Osiris, Destiny’s highest-tier PvP content. At first, DrLupo’s team would charge the players for their training services, but their customer base grew so large that they had to stop, citing they didn’t need to part with so much cash to enjoy this game.
As time went by, DrLupo also began exploring other popular titles and co-streaming with distinguished players such as Tyler “Ninja” Blevins and Timothy John Betar (TimTheTatman).
DrLupo signed an exclusivity streaming contract with Twitch in 2019. And today, he ranks among the most esteemed streamers on this platform. Then, in 2021, this deal ended when he signed an exclusivity content producing agreement with YouTube.

DrLupo’s Gaming Setup
DrLupo’s Mouse: Logitech G Pro X Superlight
Like Xchocobars and Imperialhal, DrLupo prefers the excellently designed ambidextrous Logitech G Pro X gaming mouse. The superlight mouse weighs a measly 63 grams thanks to its hyper-minimal design.
It has no RGB lighting and only features five programmable buttons on the right thumb side alongside the usual scroll wheel and 2 clickers. This minimalistic design and lack of RGB lighting greatly save on battery life while allowing for better energy storage to power it for up to 70 hours.
Further, it utilizes the revered Hero 25K optical sensor that allows him a DPI of 100-2500 ranges. This can be adjusted at increments of 50 via its software. Plus, it can also store up to 5 gaming profiles for on the fly use which can also be toggled through multiples of 125 polling rates.
All these magnificently combine to give DrLupo the most precise, fast, and consistent gaming experience.
DrLupo’s Monitors: SAMSUNG Odyssey G7
Monstrous, versatile, and elegantly designed is what best defines DrLupo’s and Summit1g’s 32-inch gaming monitor. For starters, the monitor comes with Odyssey’s 1000R panel which has been designed to mirror the human eye. This gives him maximum immersion and minimal eye strain so that he can stream from dusk to dawn.
The monitor also features the pioneer resolution hack in the name of WQHD resolution. This resolution packs 1.7 times the resolution of Full HD. Simply put, it makes DrLupo’s monitor deliver images in incredibly detailed pin-sharp pixels, sceneries to be more robust, and gaming to be as close as possible to lifelike with a fuller gaming view.
Another outstanding feature is the monitors NVIDIA G-SYNC & FREESYNC. This particular feature consistently and conveniently matches and syncs DrLupo’s frame rates between his monitor and graphics card. This takes guessing and doubts out of the equation and instead gives him an edge to topple and floor his enemies with ease.
Signing off on the features is the rapid refresh rate of 240 Hz and a response rate of 1ms. With these ultra-fast refresh and report rates, DrLupo enjoys up to 4 times better frame rates than most of his opponents. Further, they also help his screen to eliminate tearing, input lags, and stuttering.
Other key features include a versatile pivot, height adjustments, mounting, Samsung QLED technology to create pixel-perfect picture quality with every frame, as well as an HDR 600 to reveal every single gaming detail.
DrLupo’s Keyboard: Logitech G Pro Mechanical Keyboard
DrLupo leverages the tenkeyless Logitech G pro mechanical keyboard. The mechanical keyboard that comes with a three-step adjustment angle and rubber feet has been built to the exact specifications of eSports athletes.
It blends the much sort after features that range from precision, and speed to quiet performance. This endears it to many talented players, DrLupo included, who leverage its design and features to sand off any disadvantaging edges in their gaming.
Further, unlike most gaming keyboards relying on mechanical switches, it banks on durable Romer G switches. These advanced switches deliver near-instantaneous keypresses from finger to screen affording him the much-needed micro-seconds to leave you in the dirt in a split second when push comes to shove in Fortnite.
Other key features include a sleek and compact tenkeyless design to create more room for mouse movements and faster keypresses, a three-pronged USB connection for a more secure and reliable connection, and an option to dial keypresses to zero noise.
DrLupo’s Headset: Logitech G pro X
DrLupo prefers the close-ended Logitech G pro X headset over the vast varieties of headsets available in the gaming market today.
For starters, the headset features an in-built voice monitoring system that allows DrLupo to detect how loud his voice is while recording. This, combined with the headset’s microphone, allows DrLupo to produce streams backed with vocals that are cleaner, richer, and more professional.
Another distinctive feature of this headset is its extensively soft memory foam earpads that work to reduce strain on his scalp and ears. This combined with premium passive noise-canceling breathable velour guarantees him comfort while blocking all distractions so that he can keep winning.
Other key features include an inline mic that can without a boom mic, onboard memory for storage of pro tuned 5 band EQ for tournament use, and a durable aluminum fork builds to enhance its lifespan.
DrLupo’s Mousepad: Logitech G PowerPlay
For many pro gamers like Xchocobars, few pleasantries can match the convenience of wireless gaming mice. And as DrLupo can attest, once you get used to whipping your mouse around without the clutter of a wire, you can’t readily trade that freedom for wired mice.
Powering that convenience, and guaranteeing him the associated freedom is the Logitech G Powerplay. This innovative electromagnetic charging pad comes with a gaming mouse pad that has been customized to allow him to play or charge interchangeably.
With built-in Logitech G Lightspeed wireless technology, it shutters the hurdles earlier erected by wireless connections. This opens up a whole new frontier for him to enjoy more immersive and responsive wireless gaming.
DrLupo’s Microphone: BLUE SPARK BLACKOUT SL XLR
Unlike many streamers that opt for the all-common ShureSM7B or the classy AT2020 mic, DrLupo prefers the Blue Spark Blackout SL XLR mic.
For starters, the USB-connected mic has a precise cardioid pattern with a low-cutter filter that buffers against picking unwanted sounds. This helps guarantee DrLupo’s legendary broadcast sounds that are characterized by rich harmonic audios.
Further, the mic is built with a metal chassis to make it durable, has a -20db pad to prevent distortions when recording, and has an XLR connection for a convenient connection with other audio interfaces.
DrLupo’s Boom Arm: Blue Compass
Beautifully pairing up with DrLupo’s microphone shock mount, is Logitech’s Blue Compass boom arm.
The hollow arm has an aluminum build to make it durable, hidden channel cable management to reduce clutter, as well as an internal spring design for a quieter performance.
It is compatible with all standard shock mounts and has hand-tightened friction hinges for smooth, quiet operation.
DrLupo’s Mixer: TC-Helicon GoXLR
Like LoL legend Trick2g, DrLupo leverages the impressive capability of the TC-Helicon GoXLR mixer.
This 4-channel mixer pumps +48v of regulated power to DrLupo’s mic with gain levels of up to 70dB. It is also RGB lit to allow him better customization to be in sync with the rest of his setup.
Another key feature is its TS/TRS/TRRS microphone jack that supports one mic and one headset at a time. This limitation renders it suitable for solo recordings which is an exact match to DrLupo’s streaming needs.
Other key features include a sampler that allows him to record unique on-the-fly audio files to entertain his fans, Voice Fx that allows him to tune his voice in real-time, as well as an intuitive GOXLR app that makes him the master of his basic and advanced audio parameters.
DrLupo’s Case: NZXT H710i
The NZXT H710i is an RGB-lit mid-tower computer case. Like most vibrant and elegantly designed NZXT cases, it has chassis made of tempered glass and metal for aesthetics and protection.
The transparent tempered glass allows DrLupo to flaunt his impressive setup while keeping it securely constrained within the aluminum sidewalls.
Another noteworthy feature is the redesigned GPU mounting that tips from the all traditional horizontal mounting in favor of the modern vertical mounting. This, combined with intuitive patented pre-installed cable channels and straps give DrLupo both enhanced utility as well as better aesthetics.
Other key features include Type C-port, Smart Device V2, Tempered glass side panel with single screw installation, and a built GPU bracket mount.
DrLupo’s Liquid Cooler: NZXT Kraken X72
DrLupo prefers NZXT’s masterpiece; Kraken Z72. This dynamic liquid cooler features advanced lighting modes with an array of amazing colors to give DrLupo a unique and fully dynamic lighting experience.
Further, the cooler is optimized to deliver superior cooling while keeping noise to a minimum. And all these robust performance and optimization can be monitored and regulated from the cooler’s intuitive mobile or desktop compatible CAM software.
Another impressive feature included is the Aer radiator fans that are designed to offer an all-powerful liquid cooling performance without compromising durability, or attention depriving noise levels.
DrLupo’s Chair: Secretlab Titan
Unlike most gamers that prefer the Herman Miller series of chairs, DrLupo prefers the supremely comfortable and elegantly designed Secretlab Titan.
The gaming chair oozes elegance down from the tough wheels to the comfortable headrest. Its incredible convenience is self-evident from the smoothly gliding wheels, and firm yet comfortable leather, all the way to the skin caressing armrests.
In terms of adjustments, DrLupo has the command of the all versatile and powerful Andaseat feature common to all Secretlab chairs. By angling and then locking, he can game from a heavily reclined angle that takes out pressure from all possible gaming positions to afford him hours on end of entertaining his fans.
These, alongside multiple height adjustments options, built-in lumbar supports, and armrest adjustments among other features are what endear DrLupo to this chair.
DrLupo’s Camera: Canon EOS Rebel SL2 and Logitech C920
Like Dakotaz and Disguised Toast, DrLupo uses the clip-on plug-and-play Logitech C920 alongside the lightweight and easy-to-use Canon EOS Rebel SL2.
The C920 is designed for basic usage that varies from creating basic video content to more subtle one-on-one chatting. As such, it can only record videos at options of 720p at 30fps or 1080p at 30 fps that are accompanied by mics on either side for audio recording.
The Canon EOS Rebel SL2 on the other hand is a compact wifi-enabled camera with a 242 megapixel CMOS sensor. This versatile piece of hardware swivels between a camera and a handy webcam through the EOS Utility Webcam Beta Software.
DrLupo’s Motherboard: ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO
Behind the exceptionally clear images, detailed videos, and stable overclocking is DrLupo’s Maximus XI Hero motherboard. The 5-way optimized motherboard packs irresistible gaming features that tirelessly work to give DrLupo the most immersive gaming experience.
The motherboard is driven by 9th generation intel core processors, lit by Aura Sync RGB lighting with addressable headers, and is cooled by FanXpert 4.
DrLupo’s GPU: NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 3090
DrLupo’s, similar to Juansguarnizo’s, robust and incredibly detailed images and videos are thanks to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card. For starters, the card is powered by the all-powerful 2nd generation Rt cores and 3rd generation Tensor cores.
Combined, these two stack ray tracing performance alongside 8K resolution to a whole new level.
Further, the motherboard boosts a better thermal headroom thanks to a 2.9-slot design, GPU Tweak for more expansive intuitive control, well as Super Alloy Power II for a more stable high-current regulation.
