Nightmare. Nightmare. Nightmare.

―Michael Reeves

Michael Reeves (born: November 20, 1997 (1997-11-20) [age 24]) is a American YouTuber and former software contractor who is known for making content about technology and programming. He is also a member of the streamer group Offline TV, which consists of four other creators, with Pokimane being one of the most recognizable. Michael Reeves is also known for dating Twitch streamer LilyPichu, a member of Offline TV.

History

Early life

Michael was born on November 20, 1997 on the island of Maui in Hawaii. His father is American while his mother is a Filipino from Cagayan, Philippines.[1]

Prior to his YouTube career, Michael struggled academically in high school, to a point where he realized that he needed to be able to do something in order "not to starve," so instead of improving his grades, he turned to learning how to code, to the ire of his parents and his school guidance counselor.

After graduating from high school, he became a full-stack software contractor for the government of Hawaii, working on various software applications while studying computer science at the University of Hawaii.

YouTube

Michael made his first video in 2017 named "The Robot That Shines a Laser in Your Eye" which blew up immensely. This was because of him gaining traction via the r/shittyrobots subreddit. Following this, Michael started making C# programming tutorials but stopped after just three episodes. These kinds of videos weren’t getting as many views as his first video got, so he began creating videos similar to his first video; making ridiculous creations that do ridiculous things.

Living with William Osman

In late 2018, Michael moved in together with fellow comedy inventor William Osman and his wife Chelsea in California after William's house burned down during the 2017 wildfires in southern California. They would often collaborate with each other, appearing in each others' videos. One notable collaboration was the "Taser Machine Fixes My Swearing Problem" video, which was the start of Michael's obsession with using tasers in his videos. At some point, both Michael and William were evicted from the house, possibly due to their crazy invention shenanigans or other undisclosed reasons. William moved into a new house afterwards, and Michael stayed there for a while, as seen in his "I Let a Twitter Bot Decorate My Room" video and William's "Pushing A Roomba To Its Limits" video. Michael eventually parted ways with William, and moved in into the OfflineTV house, albeit not yet an official member.

Joining Offline TV

In December of 2019, amidst many rumors of Michael spending a lot of time with Offline TV members, Offline TV officially announced on its YouTube channel that Michael has joined the group. During the first months in the group, Michael was/still is known for using words such as “quirky” and calling Lily Ki (known online as LilyPichu) a “boomer.” Lily addressed on a stream that Michael used the term “quirky” so much that other members of Offline TV began using the term as well. In February 2020, Michael began dating Lily. Lily and other members of Offline TV confirmed this on their live streams.[2] A video that centered around Michael making a surgery robot pushed him past 4 million subscribers and even 4.5 million subscribers. In a LilyPichu stream, shortly after surpassing 4 million subscribers, she surprised Michael with a message in their Minecraft hardcore world and also with Fedmyster and Pokimane coming with a cake that congratulated him on getting 4.2 million subscribers.

Twitch

On June 17, 2020, Michael officially started streaming on Twitch with him playing Minecraft and Valorant with Offline TV members and other friends. A stream or two later, Michael would start streaming him coding for upcoming projects. On June 28, Michael streamed him coding with Disguised Toast, giving him challenges and teaching him how to code.
