If you haven’t heard the Twitch handle “VipersHere”, we won’t hold it against you. He only hit the gaming stream about 6 months ago, and even then only began to take it seriously in September.
However, that doesn’t mean you should underestimate him. This up-and-coming Twitch personality has been on an upward climb with more than 1,500 followers on his channel and growing by anywhere between 30 to 50 followers a day.
Who is VipersHere, Anyway?
So who is the guy behind the screen? His name is Sean Peterson, and like many of us, he’s no stranger to the gaming world. The 20-year-old streamer began his love affair with gaming at the age of six.
“I think the first game I ever played was Alien: Resurrection on the PlayStation,” he said. “I just fell in love with gaming and kept up with it over the years.”
Now as his channel increases in traffic, he is stepping up his game by partnering up with various Pro players on the Twitchsphere. The collaborations draw in new viewers, giving him greater exposure.
Exposing the Unseen Grind Behind Streaming
Despite the rapid growth of VipersHere’s channel, it didn’t come easily. A lot of hard work goes into building the young streamer’s audience.
“Sometimes it is difficult,” he admitted. “I have friends and family that want to make plans with me and sometimes I just can’t hang out or be with them because I have a stream to put on. When you have a set schedule and you don’t stream on one of those days, your viewers get upset.”
When asked how he manages to juggle them both, VipersHere said, “You just have to know how to balance the two.” The advice is easier said than done, but with discipline and dedication, it’s achievable.
Plus, streaming isn’t exactly a lonely gig. VipersHere has a highly engaging audience, which he interacts with through the stream and through Discord, a popular chat platform for gamers.
“My community is great,” he professed. “Everyone there is super friendly and communicative to each other. I have a very loyal community put together and they are extremely welcoming to the newcomers!”
VipersHere Has Goals He Aims to Strike
VipersHere is working avidly toward his goal of becoming a Twitch partner, yet that’s not the only thing on his plate. On December 7 and 8, he plans to partner with Dreamscape Foundation execute a 48-hour long charity stream with only two 1-hour long breaks in between.
The cause? Raising funds for Audrey Pickett to afford one-on-one training sessions at her local YMCA that will help her develop the strength to keep living independently in spite of being wheelchair bound.

As December inches closer, we hope you’ll join us as well on VipersHere’s stream as we put the spirit of giving into the holidays, along with a bit of fun!
