Grayson's Social Media:


Grayson, popularly known as “Purpled,” is a famous gamer and streamer. He was born on October 24, 2003, and his zodiac sign is Scorpio. Along with his two brothers, he was born and raised in Virginia, U.S. His mother is a teacher, and his two older brothers attend college.

Purpled became interested in online gaming from a very young age. He always aspired to showcase his feats on online public platforms. Initially, he would call himself “Poolboy3” and “xPoolboy.” He was introduced to live-streaming games by another gamer called Secret_Fish, whom he met during a solo BedWars game.
