Is there a story behind how you got your twitch username?

The story behind my Twitch username is quite amusing, to be honest. In real life, my nickname is Philly. However, during online gaming sessions, one of my gaming buddies would always affectionately refer to me as “her muffin.” So, I decided to blend the two together, and voila, PhillyMuffin was born!

What name do you prefer to go by?
Sam/Philly either is preferable
What games do you mostly stream?

While I’m a variety streamer at heart, you’ll often find me diving into the intense action of Call of Duty on my streams. That being said, I do make an effort to keep things fresh by mixing up the games I play.

When did you first start streaming and what was it that inspired you/made you want to start streaming?

I began my streaming journey approximately 5-6 years ago, during a period of financial hardship when I had to sell my entire setup to cover bills. At that time, I felt like my dream was slipping away. However, everything changed when I encountered a streamer who I still keep in touch with today. Their story inspired me and instilled in me the belief that nothing is impossible. Despite starting from scratch with just an Xbox One, I slowly began to rebuild my streaming presence. Now, I’m proud to say that I’ve come a long way since then, and I firmly believe that the only way from here is up!

When did you start playing games and what was the first game you remembered playing?

I delved into the world of gaming around the age of 4 or 5. The very first game etched in my memory is Sonic the Hedgehog on the Sega Mega Drive. Even now, the memories of that classic game remain vivid in my mind.

What is your all time favorite game?

I have too many favourite games to list haha.
If I were to pick one, it would have to be the need for speed most wanted on PS2. Many memories of playing this.

What do you like to do when you are not streaming?

When I’m not live on stream or engrossed in gaming, I enjoy honing my editing skills by helping out my streamer friends that I’ve met along my streaming journey. However, my main focus outside of streaming and gaming is cherishing moments with my long-distance partner.
