Q: What is sALvation’s real name?
A: My real name is actually Alexander, and that is why the AL is capitalized in “sALvation” as an homage to my actual name!
Q: Where is sALvation located?
A: I am located in the great state of New York!
Q: What are some of sALvation’s favorite foods?
A: I have plenty of foods that I enjoy a ton, but a few of my absolute favorites are chicken, potatoes and sushi. My favorite snack food is Slim Jims, and I mostly only enjoy chocolate desserts.
Q: What made sALvation decide to start streaming?
A: Well, frankly, I was not working when I started, and figured since I spend so much time playing video games anyway, that I would like to see what I could do with streaming them!
Q: What is some advice that sALvation would give to new and aspiring streamers?
A: Well, the first thing I always say is that I am not a proven product by any means, but if someone wanted advice from me, I would say a few things. First of all, I would say to play games that you enjoy, because if you are having a good time, it is so much more likely that your viewers will as well. Positive feelings are truly contagious. I also always tell people to be serious about networking. Other small streamers who are starting out will become some of your closest friends and also powerful assets. I have done a ton of networking on Twitter, and I would not be anywhere close to where I am now without the people I have met along the way.
Q: What is one goal for sALvation?
A: At this point, the next real step that I would like to accomplish for myself is reaching a Twitch Partnership. There are many other goals along the way, but I believe that being a Twitch Partner is what most small streamers strive for, and I am no different. I can tell you adamantly that I will reach that goal as well.
Q: What else does sALvation enjoy besides video games?
A: While I spend a great deal of time focused on video games, I am always a collector of board games and an avid sports game. I have over 50 board games in my closet, and I am a diehard New York Yankees fan and New England Patriots fan! (Feel free to hate on me). I am also a huge anime fan!
Q: What is sALvation’s favorite video game?
A: I am asked this a ton, and I never have a good answer for it, since I have so much love for so many games! A few games that I have spent a lot of hours playing are Apex Legends, Diablo 3, several different Pokemon games, and Super Smash Bros.
Q: What would be sALvation’s dream vacation?
A: I definitely plan on taking a trip to Japan at some point in life, but that will have to wait until the current state of the world changes, of course.
Q: What has been the most rewarding part of streaming?
A: The biggest blessing that I have received throughout my journey so far has definitely been the large group of amazing people that I have met and been able to help bring together. These are people that I consider genuine friends at this point, and many of them feel as though I have known them for years, not a month or two. We have all been able to share in each other’s successes, and I am incredibly proud of them all and I am excited to see where they all end up!
