SypherPK’s Birthplace and Early Life
SypherPK was born in Texas, US, on May 10, 1996.
He has three younger brothers – Junior, Otto, and Omar Hassan.
Junior and Otto are streamers, but Omar hasn’t been taken with this entertaining venture yet.
Nevertheless, he regularly appears in SypherPK’s gym streams.
The elementary and high schools SypherPK attended are undisclosed. He went to the university to attain a degree in business, but he quit to concentrate on gaming full-time.
How Did SypherPK Get Started Gaming?
SypherPK’s gaming journey began when he was only 8 after his dad gifted him a PlayStation 2 for his birthday. Then, games such as Jack and Dexter and Crash Bandicoot were trendy. So, he spent his leisure time exploring them.
In Elementary school, SypherPK watched some of his older schoolmates play RuneScape on the institution’s PCs. He was so excited that he decided to try this game. When he did, he liked it immensely, and he was inspired to play more MMOs and FPS titles.
SypherPK continued to play video games in middle school. This was about the same time he made up his mind about pursuing a full-time gaming career.
SypherPK developed his love for content production while still in school. One of their teachers requested him to shoot a documentary as a part of a school assignment. Filming thrilled him and inspired him to create his YouTube channel in 2011.
Sooner rather than later, he began to create and upload RuneScape content.
When SypherPK was in high school, he joined a YouTube partnership program, which was handy in helping him hone his skills in creating content on this platform.
In 2014, this streamer started Elder Scrolls Online, and soon after, he began streaming on Twitch. A year later, in April, he became a Twitch Partner.
Then, in 2020, he signed an exclusive streaming contract with this popular live streaming service.
Today, SypherPK is undoubtedly enjoying the fruits of his many years of hard work. He’s worked with reputable eSport teams such as Luminosity Gaming.
SypherPK and his spouse, Daniela, launched Oni Studios in 2020. This agency provides customized tools and services to enable upcoming content creators to build an online presence and grow their brands.
If you’re a small creator, the Oni Studios team can help you develop excellent video ideas and execute them successfully. It also suggests worthy collaborations and meets other critical creator needs such as social media management, style, business development, and marketing.
Besides, this company’s professionals will provide you with handy tips to help you bag sponsors and achieve your long-term goals.
Oni Studios is based in Austin, Texas, where SypherPK and Daniela live. Before this agency’s office was established in October 2021, it operated out of SypherPK’s home.
As of writing, Oni Studios has around 30 employees who work from the newly-built office. The latter comprises private areas and shared spaces such as a lounge and kitchen.
SypherPK revealed that he plans to create his permanent stream room at the Oni Studios’ office as soon as it’s completed this year.

By the end of it, we do not doubt that it takes a lot of devotion to make it as a streamer and content creator. And having a dedicated team to back you up always comes in handy.
SypherPK has joined the league of the most motivated fitness enthusiasts. But he wasn’t always passionate about healthy eating and exercise. In fact, this was the first time he tried to lose weight and succeeded at it.
This video covers his body transformation journey that saw him shed 75 pounds in nine months. If you’re also looking to attain your fitness goals, watch it to the end to witness how consistency and sacrifice can turn your dreams into a reality.
SypherPK’s Gaming Setup
SypherPK’s Monitor: Dell Alienware AW2518H
Like Tyler Blevins, SypherPK leverages the futuristic and precise gaming capabilities offered by Dell’s Alienware AW2518H. This impressive gaming monitor is one of the few with an ultra-fast 240Hz coupled with a 1ms response. Combined, this allows SypherPK to enjoy the most thrilling and immersive gaming free of stutter, motion blur, and screen tearing.
Further, thanks to its multiple adjustment options, Sypher can tilt it to flaunt its extensive connectivity options, swivel it for better viewing angles or even adjust its height to give his viewers better angles.
SypherPK’s Microphone: Shure SM7B
As DrDisrespect can affirm, the Shure SM7B is must-have streaming equipment for any gamer. It is, therefore, by no coincidence that SypherPK leverages the mic’s classic cardioid pattern to give his fans the best quality audio.
The mic also comes with a pop filter and air suspension shock isolation to heighten the quality, eliminating noise and breathiness. Other key features include an XLR connection for better control over his sound and an advanced electromagnetic shielding to buffer against humming and buzzing from SypherPK’s computer.
SypherPK’s Boom Arm: Rode PSA1
The legendary Rode PSA1 is no stranger to eSport professionals. Its versatility and convenience are a necessity that few can do without. Therefore, it is no surprise that SypherPK leverages this boom arm’s swivel mount to position his mics accurately.
To afford him even better utility, the arm conveniently rotates through 360 degrees, unfolds to a horizontal length of 33 inches, and stretches to 32.5 inches. Pair this with the capability to hold up to a weight of 4.4lbs held in place by ⅜ inch adaptor, and you will concur that it offers optimal utility.
SypherPK’s GPU: ASUS ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3090
While the RTX can comfortably power up to 10 monitors, SypherPk compresses it into 3 monitors max. To better get a picture of this capability, picture this. This graphics card has 2nd generation RT and 3rd generation Tensor cores. Combined, these two astronomical pushes ray tracing performance and 8K resolution to a whole new level.
The result is a hyperrealistic gaming experience characterized by natural-like images and videos.
Further, the card is powered by NVIDIA Ampere streaming multiprocessors. It is cooled by a 2.9-slot design with an unbelievably generous thermal headroom and an intuitive GPU Tweak II for optimal performance tweaking. What more can SypherPK ask for from a graphics card?
SypherPK’s Camera: Sony a6500
Though Juansguarnizo leverages the exceptional Sony a6000, he can attest to the true capabilities of Sony’s a6000+ cameras. For starters, these mirrorless camera series leverages a 5-axis in-body image stabilization to steady every lens. As a result, SypherPK gets the most detailed, accurate, and highest possible pixel-pin quality videos and images.
Further, thanks to its 24.2MP APS -C Exmor sensor, SypherPK can continuously shoot 269 frames of 11fps at a 4K resolution. Pair this with a wide 425 phase-detection, silent shooting, and noise reduction features, and you will concur that, indeed, this Sony masterpiece is worth a place in SypherPK’s arsenal.
SypherPK’s Motherboard: MSI MEG 570X
Like most of his setup peripherals, SypherPK’s MSI MEG 570X motherboard balances aesthetics and functionality. For starters, the mainboard leverages a Mystic Light Infinity II feature that beautifully combines colorful lighting and an infinity mirror for a near-endless light effect.
Further, it guarantees him versatile and ultra-fast connectivity through either a 10 G Super LAN card or an onboard Wi-Fi 6. It also supports a myriad of processors through its ever-compatible AM4 socket.
Other key features include an Xtreme Audio DAC with dual audio processors, onboard triple lighting Gen 4 M.2 slots, and an ingenious design to support 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processors or their future successors.
SypherPK’s SSD: WD Black SN750 1TB
Like the household name it is, WD spared nothing when making SypherPK’s sleek WD SN750 SSD, which boasts an exclusive WD Black SSD Dashboard to enhance gaming performance.
To ensure that this high performance is maintained at those peak levels, it bundled it with a sleek heatsink design for optimal heat absorption and dissipation. The result is an exciting game rig that not even SypherPK can pass.
SypherPK’s RAM: G SKill Trident 32GB
Though SypherPK’s MSI MEG 570X motherboard can accommodate up to 128 GB of RAM, he opts for a modest 32 GB from revered RAM producer G-Skill.
Though modest, it is more than sufficient to run all his gaming needs. The RAM’s key features include compatibility with varied AMD Ryzen and Intel chipsets, an impressive capability to overclock, and an optimization to conveniently run high-performing computers.
SypherPK’s CPU: AMD RYZEN 9 5950X
To leverage the AM4 socket supporting motherboard capabilities, SypherPK opted for AMD Ryzen’s 9 5950X processor that connects to motherboards through an advanced AM4 socket platform.
The CPU boasts 16 cores and 32 processing threads whose FPS performance outcompetes any popular MOBA games. Though it doesn’t come with a cooler, it supports liquid cooling and can record an impressive 4.9 GHz max boost on any recommended OS.
SypherPk’s Mixer: TC-Helicon GoXLR
SypherPK leverages the TC-Helicon GoXLR’s versatility to be on top of his audio needs.
The mixer packs numerous irresistible features, key among them Voice FX features that give SypherPK the power to tune his voice in real-time.
It also conveniently connects with the intuitive GOXLR app for one-click regulations and comes with a sampler for on-the-fly audio records as well as a studio-quality MIDAS preamp.
SypherPK’s Cooler: Corsair H100i RGB Platinum AIO
Corsair H100i RGB Platinum is the ultimate cooling hacker, as SypherPK can attest. For starters, the cooler comes with two 120-millimeter ML PRO Series RGB magnetic levitation PWM fans. These fans rotate to pump a blast of airflow to give SypherPk’s setup optimal temperatures while vividly illuminating them at near-zero noise levels.
The intuitive Corsair ICUE software on the other hand helps him regulate various performance aspects without compromising his stunning RGB light effects.
Other key features include varied socket compatibility, quiet cooling, a low-noise pump design, and 16 Individually controlled RGB LEDs.
SypherPK’s PSU: Thermaltake Toughpower 1000W 80+ Gold
With a Japanese capacitor, a low ripple noise design, and a high-efficiency Zero Cable Platform, the Thermaltake Toughpower 1000w is the next best thing any gamer can wish for in a PSU.
True to its tough power branding, the PSU can give a continuous power output for up to a whooping 50°C/122°F temperature level.
Further, to help cut back on clutter and allow for better wire management, the PSU gives SypherPK an upper hand in managing his cables thanks to its fully modular low-profile flat black wires.
SypherPK’s Headset: JBL Quantum One
Like Kyedae, SypherPK knows that sound is survival in competitive gaming. This is why she sought the services of one of JBL’s portable wired masterpieces. And not to disappoint, the Quantum One has lived to fulfill most, if not all, of SypherPK’s audio needs.
From the thrill of stealthily tracking his enemies to the amplification of every MOBA battle victory, Quantum One has lived up to his expectations if his stellar performance when donning this headset is anything to go by.
To better guarantee him this optimal and immersive experience, the headset leverages its integrated head-tracking sensor and incorporates True Active Noise Cancellation, all sitting on his scalp through soft memory foam ear cushions.
SypherPK’s Mouse: Roccat Kone Pro Air And Razer Viper Ultimate
As a Roccat brand ambassador, it is only fair that SypherPK uses the Roccat Kone Pro Air mouse. But let that not deceive you into underestimating its capabilities. For starters, a 5-minute charge on this mouse powers it for up to 5 hours and a whopping 100 hours on a single full charge.
As is tradition with Roccat, the wireless mouse is lightweight and dons an ergonomic shape all thanks to its honeycomb shell. This comfortable design makes way for a stunning showcasing of SypherPK’s vivid AIMO with a whooping 16.8 million color RGB lighting options.
Complementing these wonderful aesthetics is the Titan Switch Optical, with 100 million click life cycles and speed-of-light actuation for unprecedented speed and precision. This is a measly surface scratch on SypherPK’s heat-treated pure PTFE gliding mouse’s features.
Occasionally, he also uses the iconic Razer Viper Ultimate.
SypherPK’s Keyboard: Roccat Vulcan TKL Pro
The Roccat Vulcan TKL is another handy weapon in SypherPK’s arsenal. The compact tenkeyless form keyboard significantly reduces the distances between keys making for fluid and swift gaming reactions.
Unlike most mechanical keyboards, it relies on Roccat’s new linear Titan Switch Optical, whose lighting fast actuation gives him a whole new speed and responsiveness level. Pair these with an advanced anti-ghosting technology that is error-proof even in frantic keystrokes, and you will approve SypherPK’s choice of keyboard.
Other key features include dedicated media control keys, Aimo illumination with full backlighting in 16.8million keys, and Roccat’s Easy-Shift[plus] technology for advanced remapping.
SypherPK’s Mousepad: SteelSeries QcK XXL
Unlike most pads, the SteelSeries is so generous with surface space that it is sufficient for SypherPK’s mouse, phone, headset, and some bit of his tenkeyless keyboard.
The thick pad adheres to surfaces using a non-slip rubber base to minimize unwanted movements and incorrect mouse movement tracking.
SypherPK’s Case: LIAN LI PC-O11 Razer Edition
Like most PC cases, SypherPK’s case features a combination of metal and tempered glass. It has impressive thermal regulation features, allowance for modest stacking of storage devices is RGB lit, and has an elegant yet minimalist kind of finish.

SypherPK’s wife is Daniela Ali, and they’ve been married for several years. Details about when they tied the knot are unavailable. Rumor has it they dated for a few years before they decided to spend the rest of their lives together.
Daniela doesn’t have a Twitch channel yet, but you may occasionally spot her on SypherPK’s streams. You may also catch her on Twitter and Instagram, where she has thousands of followers.
Moreover, Daniela is the co-founder and CEO of Oni Studios. She invests a lot of her time ensuring that this agency achieves its primary objective – to help content creators expand their reach and see their professional dreams to fruition.
Before Daniela established Oni Studios, she was a Human Resources Assistant at Commercial Concrete Systems. She also served as an executive assistant at MoveCorp between 2017 and 2018.
SypherPK’s Net Worth and Career Earnings
Presently, SypherPK has a net worth of 6.48M, owing to these revenue streams:
With 5,777,822 followers, and 111,968,384 views, SypherPK is now the 21st most followed Twitch streamer.
According to Twitch Tracker, SypherPK’s channel has 4,959 active subs, which translates into over $12,000 monthly. Combined with his ad & bit revenue and viewer donations and tips, he’s pockets between $40K and $42K monthly in Twitch payouts.
Unquestionably, YouTube has been handy in helping SypherPK amass his wealth. His primary YouTube channel, SypherPK, has accumulated 1,498,290,707 views. The remaining four have garnered a collective 765,953,166 views as of this writing.
It’s noteworthy that SypherPK also opened a YouTube channel (Life with Aussies) for his pets in April 2020. It boasts 249K subscribers and 4,029,599 views.
Assuming he’s monetized all these YouTube channels, he earns over $1.5M annually in YouTube payouts. And, this could be on the low. Should we throw in his ad revenue, he might be making more than $2M on YouTube every year.
SypherPK has worked with an extensive list of brands since joining the professional streaming industry. Examples of these companies include DrPepper, JBL, Roccat, Discord, Brave, XB Sports, Nesquik, and Reece’s. He’s undoubtedly made a great deal of cash from these sponsorships, increasing his net worth.
SypherPK’s apparel brand, Metal Umbrella, is also in his pool of income sources. He avails t-shirts, joggers, sweatshirts, hats, jackets, and hoodies. Presumably, he makes a considerable profit from the sale of these items.
SypherPK joined Luminosity Gaming as a content creator in 2018. His salary from this widely recognized esport organization has increased his annual income.
We presume SypherPK makes some cash from his company, Oni Studios. Of course, the exact sum depends on the number of creators he and Daniela work with monthly. All the same, his income from his agency has helped approximate his net worth.
Between 2018 and 2022, SypherPK participated in 29 gaming tournaments to bring in $76,876.40.
He played 13 games in 2018 to earn $51,400.00, the highest sum he’s ever brought in a single year. In 2021, he only played one game competitively to rake in $100. This is the least amount he’s made in a year so far.
The games he’s played are Apex Legends, Fall Guys, Call of Duty: Warzone, Rocket Arena, Hyper Scape, and Fortnite. The latter accounts for 90.03% ($69,209.73) of his total prize money. And since it’s his forte, this doesn’t come as a surprise.
While SypherPK played 28 of these games as an independent player, he competed in one tournament for FaZe Clan.
SypherPK’s Retirement and Post Professional
We believe SypherPK intends to stay in the streaming and content creation scene for more years. He’s divulged that he plans to move his streaming gear from his home to Oni Studios’ offices. This should enable him to successfully juggle his streaming career and duties as this agency’s co-owner.
