Welcome to this week's Feature Friday!
We will be featuring none other than MDBOAKTREE – a Twitch content creator!
Oak Tree is a content creator that has been streaming for nearly 7 years. Want to know what MDB stands for? Pop on over to his stream and ask him (boom, we had to do it).
The three words that define MDBOAKTREE's channel are:
- Knowledgable - Oak Tree knows his stuff about gaming and streaming. Just like an old tree, this man has 7 years of experience streaming. Whether you have questions about becoming a content creator or how to slay in games, he will have an answer for you!
- Trivia - Now part of the reason he'll have an answer for you is because Oak Tree has a "strange" memory. What we mean by that is he can remember a crazy amount of fun facts that are perfect for trivia. So much so that he got a job as a trivia guy at a local restaraunt just based off of his memory! Be sure to stop by his stream for some great trivia.
- Tree House - Welcome to my house! Actually, what Flo Rida meant was - welcome to the Tree House!, Oak Tree's tight community of gamers. If you're looking to hang with him or play games with him, this community is worth the time.

Getting to know MDBOAKTREE
1) Tell us about your background, and what made you start streaming?
I started a gaming news podcast with my friend GrifsLynam called Infinite Respawn. After watching CohhCarnage on Twitch I started streaming to help promote the podcast because I liked his chill personality/variety. I started streaming one day a week and enjoyed it so much that I ended up streaming most days during the week. I enjoyed (and still do) playing games, talking to people, and getting to know them. 7 years later, I am still here streaming and the podcast is still going almost every week! I started on Twitch, switched to Mixer, and now am back on Twitch. I love my community "Tree House", which is a positive destination for people hang out.
It means a lot to me that people want to join my stream. I stream because I love video games and people. My father got me playing video games on an Atari when I was young. We would share new games we thought the other would like. It was a bonding moment for us both. He passed away 5 years ago, but he was proud of me gaming. Who can say that about their parents? Dad taught me to try everything and see if you like it. I think that's why I play a variety of games. It may be hard to grow that way, but life's too short and gaming should be fun.
2) Who is your favorite streamer and why?
Well this is a hard one... l I love different streamers and it depends how I am feeling at the time. MythicTreez on FaceBook is a great gamer, chill, and very genuine. RavenRas and Covent I like because they have learned to create great communities to fit their personalities. I will have to say though that most people know I am an Archo fan!! I love his energy, humor, memes, and most of all his innovation. To top all that off, he is good at most games and keeps up with the chat!
3) What gaming communities are you involved in?
While on Mixer I was part of a great community of streamers - MC2. Once Mixer shut down the community has become less active. I have recently acquired the discord for the group and have been working with members to reinvent MC2. I guess you get a Quick Drop Media exclusive. Lol. We are renaming the community to Multimedia Creators Core. Our purpose will be to create a “nerve center” for content creation. It will be where creators can help each other. Artists, musicians, Video editors, Streamers, etc..... all in one place from all platforms to share ideas and services. We are hoping the new format will be ready in a couple months.
4) Any special goals for the rest of 2021?
The main thing for me this year is working on networking. I enjoy getting to know people and where they came from. I am a strong believer in asking questions and having open conversations. I feel like with social media a lot of communication has been lost, ironically. I am hoping to bring that back.
5) What piece of streaming equipment can you not live without?
It has to be my GoXLR/GoXLR Mini combo. Running a two PC setup it is nice to have the two devices together so I can control volumes on both PC's. The effects, muting capabilities, etc. are great for production value and being able to adjust on the fly too.
6) What are your top 3 games of all time?
I) The Lion King on SNES - I had many hours in this game! The “Just can't wait to be king” level of the game is absolutely brilliant! Highly recommend!
II) Socom 2 on PS2 - Oh wow what a game! I really wish this series would come back or at least something similar! It used early voice recognition technology to allow you to order your NPC troops around - pretty amazing!
III) Doom Series on Xbox/PC - My dad introduced me to the shareware version of the game when I was in high school and I was hooked. I almost put Halo here, but Doom will always be my go to. It is hands down one of the best shooters ever!
