We’re in our thirties and live by the sunny south coast of England with our gorgeous Nebelung cat Archer. We met online in 2003 and we tied the knot in 2015, and we’re each other’s best friends! We started our careers in the creative industries in London. Aidan’s an award-winning digital genius with a background in web development, business management, and 3D design. Meanwhile, Chorna’s been rocking it in digital communications, community management and creative writing. Our gaming journeys began back in the 8-bit era and we love reminiscing about growing up with classic games such as Tetris, Super Mario Bros, Sonic The Hedgehog, and more. Our first PixelGum TV stream went live on 15th August 2017, and we’ve been streaming every day ever since!

In February 2019 we discovered we’re expecting our first baby! Find out the latest baby news in our Discord server.

About GumBoy

GumBoy is just your average alien space cowboy who travelled 10,000 light years in search of intelligent life in the universe. Unfortunately, once he discovered Earth he mistook a piece of chewed gum covered in human DNA as the dominant life-form on this planet. He used his ship’s DNA re-sequencer to transform himself into a gum-based life-form before crash-landing down to Earth and into our lives. He now lives in the basement, gaming 24/7 while surviving on a diet of Earl Grey tea and Kit Kats! Learn more about GumBoy here.
