Adande Thorne (born: July 10, 1988), better known online as sWooZie, is a Trinidadian-American actor, scriptwriter, producer, director, animator, YouTube personality & gamer. He joined YouTube in 2006, focusing the majority of his channel to his travels as a television personality and gamer. His content later evolved to giving advice and has pioneered YouTube animated storytelling. He stated in a video that he started his YouTube channel in order to direct people who were curious about his recent endeavors. His content still continues that pattern through his own style of animation, focusing on his endeavors to enter the film industry and the adventures that have occurred.
Adande was born in a town called Diego Martin located in Trinidad and Tobago, which is where he lived for all of his infantile years, until moving to Orlando, Florida. As mentioned in countless of his videos, he worked at Disney World, as well as the Hard Rock Hotel, much of which is detailed in his content. Thorne describes that "a game fell into his lap called Dead or Alive" which he found was one of his strong points, often going online to go on lengthy win-streaks before garnering single loss. He began to receive attention through word-of-mouth and became discussed in-game media. He then ceased gameplay when the game mechanics of his character radically shifted where he lost his combative style until receiving a call from a representative from DirecTV who invited Thorne to a competition in San Francisco, California after hearing about him.
After coming in third, he began to post more of his personal adventures on YouTube and began to attract a fanbase. By this time, DirecTV announced the launch of a Gaming Competition Show, in which Adande participated in. In the championships, after a brutal back and forth with the DOA champion 'Master', sWooZie came in first place, skyrocketing his reputation in the gaming community, he was drafted to the Los Angeles Team to continue competing. Although he lost in the proceeding season, he auditioned for another competition called WCG Ultimate Gamer, a reality TV show surrounding competitive gaming, he placed 4th in the competition.
