Career

When he first started playing video games he called himself “Diarrhea Panic”. He decided then to change his name into DisRespect and later on to Dr DisRespect. He created his character because he played Halo 2 and Xbox where he could communicate with other players via proximity voice chat.

Guy decided to showcase how every gamer thought he looked while playing video games. Because of that and because he was good at playing and entertaining people through the voice chat, he created a character that looked like a wrestler with black mustache and sunglasses.

After adding some finishing touches to the character, he and his friends began posting videos on You Tube on January, 2010. He played Call of Duty on his channel, mostly. Just a year later, Beam stopped posting videos on the platform and never went back to it.

Around that time, Sledgehammer Games offered him a spot of a Community Manager at their company. He decided to take it and was later promoted into a Level Designer, where he created different maps for Call of Duty.

While he was working for Sledgehammer Games, he joined Twich.tv, then called Justin.tv. Streaming was something he enjoyed a lot, so he decided to resign from his position as Level Designer in 2015, explaining that he wanted to focus on his other interests.

After he had stopped working for Sledgehammer, he didn’t have a job and decided to move his family to Washington where he would work on World of Tanks. Around that time, Beahm was approached by Boom.TV investors who offered him to be their consultant.

That worked out well for him, because he got 25 to 30 thousand views per stream. He works from Monday to Friday for 6 to 8 hours. He has an online feud with another streamer, Jaryd “Summit1g” Lazar, but in real life they are good friends. Guy says that Lazar is an inspiration for him, while their rivalry is great for the job.

Beahm is always trying to upgrade his gaming choices and his characters. Because of that he was extremely popular at TwitchCon where he helped to fill out an arena that held some of the best players in the world.

Even though he had gained a lot of following because of his battle royal games, he got passed by a gamer called Ninja on the platform. That didn’t stop Beahm’s fans to call him “Face of Twitch”.
During 2017 he decided to take a break from streaming to save his marriage. The same year he got an ESports Industry Award for “The Streamer of the Year” and The Game Award for “Trending Gamer”. He returned on 5 February, 2018, gaining more than 380 thousand viewers.
