Most who find themselves on the track to becoming a doctor might continue on that path and realize their dream of helping others. However, Markstrom saw obstacles in his way that would be more of a preventative measure in truly helping others. He also concurrently saw a path that allowed him to live his dream of aiding those in need and playing games.

As his streaming career started to take off, Markstrom had a hard decision to make. Either continue with his studies for another 8-10 years or commit full-time to Twitch. Since that choice was made, Markstrom has seen a resounding growth in popularity and has used said growth to run charity streams.

Markstrom Analysis

Continuing a trend of being slightly different from most people, Markstrom has a rather unique take on with his Tarkov Settings. Starting out with a much lower FOV than most others at 65, to an ultimately higher graphical intensity than most as well. However, like most others Markstrom’s keybindings are all relatively similar to the standard, as is his mouse sensitivity.

The differentiations don’t stop there though! When it comes to his PC build, Markstrom has one of the least “conventional” and most unique builds. Sporting not only a KRAIT Gaming motherboard, but also utilizing an actual DSLR mirrorless camera to stream. The only unfortunate aspect of Markstrom’s build is that we don’t know all of it. His streaming PC is boiled down to three components, but if Markstrom’s gaming pc is anything to base off of, we’re sure it’s just a beefy.

Markstrom is a very reliable and kind streamer who will usually be found online around 7 am EST every day save Saturday. If you want to know more about Markstrom’s streaming schedule or about him in general, follow him on Twitch, Twitter, Instagram, or YouTube.

Markstrom Bio

Always the hockey fan, Markstrom had a habit of using upcoming players’ last names as his username. It just happened to stick when he chose Jacob Markstrom’s back in 2006. It was a coincidental success story that Jacob has also since had.

When our Markstrom was 19, he became a licensed professional trainer with the American Council on Exercise where he worked mostly as a personal trainer while simultaneously working on his Biology Major at the University of Florida. His studies into the field of biomedicine, Markstrom needed a language class, and as a whim decided to take Russian. It stuck with him more than he expected and ended up putting the personal training aside so he could double major, this time in Russian.

After completing his time with the University of Florida, Markstrom took a gap year to study for the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) and successfully passed it. After passing the MCAT, Markstrom worked at a Biomedical lab for a while, and with his newfound free time, he started streaming on Twitch. 

It wasn’t until around 2015 that Markstrom decided that another 10 years of studies, student loans, and debt just wasn’t worth the stress of the industry and decided that his best outlook was in streaming. He dove headfirst into Twitch even though he only averaged around 30 viewers a day, and dedicated the rest of his time to streaming. Since then, Markstrom has been able to support himself, and run multiple charity streams, managing to strike the best of both of his interests.
