He hasn’t talked about his family, deciding to keep the names of his parents a secret, but has said that he’s fond of his parents and often shares pictures of them on his Facebook profile, especially with his mother. He has a sister Tess, who is now married to Matt Sklena, and is living in Laurel Canyon, California.
He matriculated from a local high school, however, although he’s apparently a graduate, there are no details of from where, and in what.
Introduced to the “Street Fighter” franchise in 1993, Maximillian immediately became a die-hard fan of the second installation of the popular video game.
As he got older, his interest in fighting and arcade games on the whole increased, and he started playing other video games, and even participated in professional tournaments for FPS shooter games, such as “Call of Duty”.
The popularity of YouTube gaming content was increasing with the start of the 2000s, and Maximillian himself tried to make a name for himself, creating content related to the things he loves the most, fighting games. It’s unknown why he adopted the pseudonym ‘Dood’.
He launched the channel in 2007, and the first video “Street Fighter III 3rd Strike Casuals” was uploaded the same year.
He continued with similar content, focusing mainly on “Street Fighter III” and “Street Fighter 4” video games, showing to the fans of the game how to perform particular moves. His popularity steadily increased, and for some time he produced only “Street Fighter 4” content, eventually switching to other games, including “Call of Duty: Black Ops”, and “Modern Warfare 3”.
Rise to Prominence
New games started appearing on Maximilian’s channel, attracting more people. He was spotted by “Mortal Kombat” creator Ed Boon, who chose Maximillian as the commentator for the fighting game “Yatagarasu: Attack on Cataclysm”.
His popularity further increased as he provided his services for the “Iron Galaxy’s Killer Instinct” by editing videos for character trailers, promotional material, and story mode of seasons 2 and 3. Moreover, his work as a commentator on the “Marvel vs. Capcom 3” impressed his fans, and this encouraged him to create the commentary series on the video games “The Online Warrior” and “Assist Me”. He found the right recipe for stardom, and another video game – “Boss Rage!” – was turned into a commentary series.
He now has around 1.5 million subscribers, while his videos have been viewed more than 885 million times. Some of his most popular videos include “Boss Rage: Shin Akuma & Devil Kazuya (Tekken 7)”, which has over 3.6 million views, then “Max Reacts: Cloud Revealed for Smash Bros”, with just over 3.2 million views, and “Rate the Finisher: Mortal Kombat 11 Edition”, with three million views, among many other videos related to fighting games.
To speak further of his accomplishments, Maximillian was awarded the Cannon Award during EVO 2015, because of his unparalleled service to the Fighting Game Community.
