Hello! My name is Jordielocks but you can call me Jordie. I am 26 years old, living in California, and have been pursuing content creation since March of 2018. I have been playing video games since 1998 when I first played Freddi Fish (lol), and my love for gaming continued throughout high school and college! I first started streaming when I was in nursing school as a way to relieve stress, but it has since then become one of my biggest passions! Now, I am a full-time Neonatal ICU nurse and content creator that just wants to spread positive vibes to those around me. The grind towards making an impact not only as a nurse, but also as a content creator, is really only just beginning.

I love sports, movies, music, anime, and I have a film degree! Whenever I stream, I try to entertain as much as I can, and most of the time I can do by just being stupid old me.
