1. What is the story behind your twitch channel name?
Well, initially my twitch name was Viksfar [My daughters name is Viktoria and Far in danish is dad] BUT...did not think it had enough ”punch”, and the missus always call me her geek.. so, Geekforgamingdk
2. What is your video game history/background and all time favourite game?
I have been playing since C64. And my favorite games are FM15, BF4, Left4Dead 2 and Civilization-series
3. What/who inspired you to start streaming?
In all honesty, it was a unknown streamer called DougalDK who inspired me… don't misunderstand me, but I REALLY thought to myself ”If that idiot could do it, so can i”... because he REALLY sucks and still got 28-30 viewers every night.
4. When did you start streaming?
About 6-7 months ago… but it's in the last 2-3 months that I really gave it all
5. How did you find the first few weeks/months of streaming? (any funny stories/mistakes/highlights?)
Annoying, really… In the start I had NO idea of what I was doing or what was going on...and on my VERY first stream EVER, Ii had no idea what the /me command does and all of a sudden a ”You have been given 500$” up in red…
And I thought ”what the fuck is going on...?” yes, I have been trolled… and GOOD, I might say...
6. How did you grow your stream? How did you network?
I made myself noticed on various streams...being kind, friendly and just...myself. And when i got invited to BNN, it was a small dream come true.
7. What has been your proudest moment while streaming?
Two things, getting into TeamBNN’s HYPEsquad and getting affiliated.
8. How did you find the technical side of streaming? Setting up your stream, etc?
Sorry, but… f**king annoying. Every... and i mean EVERY night, there was a problem with X-split. Either the chat did not work or the stream in itself or the headset, volume, picture... constantly always a problem...
9. What do you enjoy most about your streaming career
The people I meet. From ALL over the world. It really makes the world a smaller place.
10. What don't you enjoy so much about streaming?
The lag of viewers. And when people don't interact with me.
11. What are you short term and long term goals for your stream?
