How it all started

Arun grew up in the UK and, at a young age, was constantly curious about the inner workings of gadgets. He had no idea that those early experiences would pave the way to his future as a tech influencer. Besides being a tech lover, he was also a video game enthusiast.

At the age of 14, his brother gave him a gift that would shape his future - a ZTE Blade smartphone. The ZTE Blade came out in 2010 so to techies it might sound like it’s from the Stone Age, but it was Arun’s first smartphone, so he got really excited about it. He took that excitement and channeled it into creating a video / review about the phone. The response was overwhelmingly positive “A lot of people watched it, and the video did much better than I expected." He realized that he was on to something, so he turned his attention to creating smartphone videos, which ultimately led to the trajectory of his channel.

YouTube over business consulting - Career pivot

Fast forward to University, Arian had already been creating video content for some time, but he saw it as a side hustle, not his main gig. Creating YouTube videos was merely a passion project, a hobby that allowed him to explore his tech-savvy side. But back then, he was aspiring to be a business consultant and was studying for a degree in Mathematics and Economics from the prestigious Oxford University.

During his studies, he interned at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) in London, a leading professional services firm. He was still actively making content but wasn’t making much money from it. But it became clearer and clearer to him that YouTube was more than just a fun project, as he continued producing content, even during his internship and nail-biting school exams.

YouTube was like a playground, offering him the autonomy of creative freedom and an alternative to the traditional, corporate environment he once envisioned for himself. This artistic liberty became the guiding star on his captivating YouTube journey. After finishing the internship at PWC, Arun was offered an entry-level role and a $46,000 salary. He politely declined the offer, preferring to focus full-time on his YouTube channel.

“ It was this pivotal crossroads moment where I had to decide to follow my heart. A pretty good indicator that I made the right choice was that I would go into the office when I was at this internship and constantly be thinking about what video I'd film when I got home. ”

The channel has gained over 16.6 million subscribers and 4.1 billion views, but his journey to becoming an influential YouTuber wasn’t an overnight success.
