He hails from Edmonton, AB, Canada and fell in love with animation in grade three, due to his friend Nicole making one. He then launched his YouTube channel on August 4, 2014, making a short animation arond Christmas called "Snowman". He originally gained a following on YouTube with his game parody animations. Growth continued as he moved into the storytime-genre under his new alias "GingerPale".
He attended the University of Alberta for Arts and Design for three years before dropping out in 2018 to take up YouTube full-time.
Devon is the youngest of three. He has a brother named Ian, who is a singer and goes by the name St. Arnaud, and a sister named Jinelle.
His character looks completely different from what he looks like in real life. He wears a purple suit in which part of the back was patched with a pink patch. He also has a pocket on the front. He has a very simplified face, a green head, and green feet. The character originated from a character he drew for his series "Box Factory".
