I am married and have two daughters. I served in the Army with one deployment to Iraq. I'm new to streaming and hope to share my knowledge and experiences with you.

If you are, or someone you know is in immediate danger, please call a local emergency telephone number or go immediately to the nearest emergency room. If you are having emotional distress, please utilize 911 or the National Suicide Hotline 1-800-273-8255 Finally, my content is for mature audiences. Any thing I say is my own opinion, does not substitute medical/mental health advice or treatment, and ALWAYS ALWAYS consult with your treatment team regarding your health.
My name is James, aka Skoal42, and I began streaming in August 2021. I've always been interested in streaming and finally made the plunge after watching a close friend's stream. I was incredibly fortunate and became a Twitch Affiliate within my first month of streaming. Thank you to everyone that has and continues to support me! I stream from my Xbox to my PC using Streamlabs and I do not hear my stream alerts like a traditional streamer. I check my feed frequently so be patient if I don't immediately respond when you interact with me. Also, I tend to become hyper-focused when I'm gaming so there will be times when I don't say a whole lot. You can help with this by being active in chat and its also cool if you're just wanting to lurk; all are welcome. I served in the U.S. Army from 08-16, highest rank is Sergeant (E-5), and deployed to Iraq from 09-10. My military service, and I'm sure my fellow Veterans can relate, those were some of the best and worst years of my life. Either way, wearing the uniform made me who I am today and I would do it again, because it was the most meaningful and selfless thing I've done with my life. I work in the mental health field and have a B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Sociology and a Masters Degree in Social Work. My hope is to bring you some great content with gaming, share some laughs, and to normalize mental health challenges. Finally, I hope we have some fun, you gain something from stopping by my stream, and thank you in advance!
