Since his humble beginnings streaming RuneScape on Twitch in 2013 under a different name, creator AustinShow has found his niche online as a host. His game show Name Your Price, currently co-hosted alongside fellow creator Will Neff, won the award for "Best Streamed Series" at the Streamer Awards in February, thanks to its unique on-the-road format it adapted for its third season.

What was the moment you felt like you had “made it”?

AS: I still have a long way to go before I feel like I’ve “made it.” I don’t want to ever get to a point where I feel like I’ve “arrived” because I think that leads to a sense of complacency.

Who is your celebrity crush?

What’s your favorite memory from one of your streams?

AS: I hosted a live show that went on tour, so going out on stage to those live audiences has to be my best on-stream memory to date.

Name your top five video games of all time.

What’s the most valuable lesson you’ve learned from your time creating content online?

AS: Quality is more important than quantity. I’ve never been someone who has streamed often but I think putting out more quality broadcasts goes much further than more frequent, lower-quality streams. That being said, I’ve got many colleagues that are able to do both. Unfortunately, I do not have this skill.

What’s your No. 1 distraction?

AS: My biggest distraction is probably traveling. I’m on the road constantly and love exploring new places. Sometimes it’s hard for me to set time away to work and I find myself distracted by an exciting new adventure or trip.
