Preston's Career

Arsement has been making his presence felt on YouTube since the year 2010 when he first created his channel and his once newfound hobby of gaming has now propelled him into stardom. However, before Preston became a full-time YouTuber, he was going to college to become a surgeon. During the summer after graduating, he started second-guessing about becoming a surgeon.


He revealed that he got into some “bad stuff” and started lying to his parents. It was around this time that he decided that college wasn’t for him. He finally decided to return to his YouTube channel, TBNRfrags, which at the time had around 200 subscribers. As his YouTube channel grew, he started uploading and live streaming more and more until eventually Machinima reached out and partnered with his channel.

Preston’s first-ever video on his main channel dates back to January 16, 2013.


Preston’s parents realized that YouTube could become a career for him that he made money from, but more importantly, it could be a career that he loved and from that point on, Preston became a full-time YouTuber. Unlike other full-time gamers on social media, Preston didn’t always dream of choosing a career path as an e-gamer, but as technology took over, he found himself engrossed in gaming almost every waking hour, and that paved the way for making this a full-time job.

In 2012, this young man shifted gears from COD to other games like ‘Castle Crashers’ and ‘Far Cry’ and even started a new dedicated channel called ‘PrestonPlayz’.
