James's Social Media:


James Beavers was born on November 19, 1991, in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England. He grew up in the United Kingdom with his mother Susan. He graduated from college and decided to pursue a YouTube career after posting videos on YouTube since he was in high school.

Beavers tried out several YouTube channels before settling on “TheGamingBeaver.” During his adolescence, he used “TheDeadLand” as his first proper channel, which he created on January 10, 2007. Beavers’ second biggest channel was “Beaver .Media,” which was an animation channel he created on February 8, 2011, but the meticulous time and effort put into these animations made it difficult to keep a good upload schedule, and he eventually abandoned the channel to focus on a type of content he could make more frequently — gaming videos. Beavers posted a series of videos on this channel of the game “Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis,” which was made to look like a film about a group of tourists who stumbled upon an island full of zombie dinosaurs. The YouTuber Dvrex, inspired the series. His most recent video for the channel, “My Sketch Story Of Jurassic Park,” was posted on March 7, 2012.

This change in content prompted the creation of a new YouTube channel on January 15, 2014. This channel was dubbed “TheGamingBeaver.” Beavers began by playing games like “Pokemon X and Y,” but quickly moved on to other interests. As a fan of the “Jurassic Park” franchise at the time, his first truly successful series was playing the game “Jurassic Park Builder.” Beavers would soon find himself playing many games from the “Jurassic Franchise,” including “Jurassic World The Game,” “Jurassic World Evolution,” and other dinosaur-related games like “The Isle,” “Dino Hunter: Deadly Shores,” and many more. Beavers has achieved success and fame with these series, and can now maintain a regular upload schedule and a loyal fan base.
