urbanbohemian (he/they) is a Black Queer writer, gamer, foodie, streamer, charitable fundraiser, comic book lover, cocktail connoisseur, stalwart brunch supporter, disco music aficionado and all-around Generation X geek having grown up through the introduction of video games — from arcades to home consoles to computers — and loving every new innovation along the way.
As a streamer and content creator, urbanbohemian plays a variety of video game genres, loving a good looter shooter, cozy indies, visual novels, cooperative multiplayer games, roguelites, and deckbuilders.

His approach to streaming and gaming is that everyone should have fun, broadcasters and viewers alike! With a focus on finding games where representation and diversity is prominently woven into the content instead of an afterthought, he enjoys showcasing and featuring a wide variety of gaming genres and creative voices.
When you stop by urbanbohemian’s stream, you’ll be made to feel at home, welcomed and respected. While he might go on chatty tangents about brunch, disco music, comic books, or the latest anime to grab his attention, the focus is having a good time, playing some great games, and spreading immaculate vibes.

Advice from urbanbohemian:
- It’s cliche, but "Have fun!" You can always practice and get better at any game, but if you’re not enjoying it there are so many other games and genres to discover.
- Take some time to pop on a headset and truly immerse yourself in a game’s soundscape: soundtrack, atmospheric sounds, even enemy and NPC callouts. It can elevate the experience and lead to a deeper love of the game.
- Keep an eye out for indie devs and studios putting out games in the genres you like, there are always hidden gems that might not be the most “competitive” titles out there, but those can quickly become favorites in your library.
