What platforms do you create content on?
Matt: I’ve created and create content for a wide variety of platforms including Youtube, Twitch (streamer under the “Sleeper Brothers” banner), I do a weekly/fortnightly podcast for Sleeper Gaming called “The Sleeper Podcast” as well as creating/taking pictures and posts for all social Medias for the above mentioned brands!
Justin: Not one of my hobbies :D
What is your all-time favourite game?
Matt: Pokémon Blue/Red, Goldeneye 64, and Call of Duty: Black ops 2! Because who just has 1 fave game!
Justin: Final fantasy 9, I never finished it because lost my memory card for my Playstation. I recently purchased it on the Nintendo Switch and plan to finish it this time.
Where would you like to be in 1 year?
Matt: 1 year from now, in a year’s time I would have built all brands further towards being household names in Australia and the APAC region. I have very specific goals for each brand and they all hold very special places in my heart as each an every one of them are based around helping players and the Australian gaming community be the best they can be whether that is competing in a game or just being a casual content creator, I feel like each of the brands I am apart of can help people in one way or another
Justin: I’d love to see Quantum expand its flavors and its range into different supplement products. Personally I would love to make Quantum my full time job!!
What or who got you into gaming?
Matt: Funnily enough, my Dad, he brought a Super Nintendo and Gameboy pocket which I mostly played but he loves golf and one of the first games I remember playing “competitively” was a European golf game for Super Nintendo against my Dad haha
Justin: I’m lucky my parents spoilt my sisters and I. We had every nintendo console, Game Boy, Playstation and Xbox. I fell in love with the OG Warcraft my dad had back in the day.
What do you think of Quantum Energy Drink?
Matt: Well, being the owner of this brand obviously I would be quite biased. But I love it and use it myself daily! I used to be a big canned energy drink consumer until I did the research and recognised that the sugar content was VERY bad for long term health, being on the tail end of my 20’s It was time for a change which is partly the reason Quantum Energy drink now exists. Being sugar free is also a big deal in my house as my partner of 10(ish) years is a Type 1 diabetic and having sugary anything in our house is just a NO NO.
Justin: What Matt said
What is 1 piece of advice for someone starting out?
Matt: Nothing happens overnight but ALWAYS maintain a healthy balance between gaming/streaming and OUT OF THE HOUSE social activities as well as a job.
Justin: Just start!
What is your favourite content creation moment?
Matt: One of the first ever streams myself and best mate Clint did was casting some Call of Duty 8’s games to nearly 150 viewers on our first attempt. Best feeling ever!!
Justin: Playing Farm Simulator with the boys recently. If you have time check the link below. lmaoo
Who is your favourite streamer or YT'er? And why?
Matt: Optic Hecz. Hands down no one even comes close. The man is a legend although not defined as a “streamer or Youtuber specifically, the amount of content he makes and the quality of it (plus his vision and the way he has built Optic Gaming) just stand out to me. Definitely someone I look up to and idolise within this space 1 Million percent! Say what you
Justin: Tim Ferriss he also has a killer podcast and books. I love listening to his podcast to and from work!
What is your favourite gaming snack?
What's your favourite thing to do outside gaming?
Matt: I work full time in the construction industry so that takes up a lot of time but If I balanced my life a little better I would love to play more golf as I’ve been playing for 23 years give or take and my swing has suffered as I’ve gotten older. Thanks to my attempt at being an adult.
Justin: Quantum! It takes up 90% of my time, outside my full time job and gaming
Who outside of gaming do you look up to as a role model or idol?
Matt: I think I made that pretty obvious above^^ Again though Optic Hecz. Any esports organisation owner or manager should be taking note on how he operates.
Justin: My Wife, she started her own business 18 months ago and has been absolutely killing it ever since!
