How Did Tim Pool Become Rich?
Tim Pool was born in 1986 on March 9th. He is currently 35 years old. He was born in Chicago, Illinois, America. His parents are Daniel Pool and Timothy Daniel pool. His mother was a teacher and has her own YouTube channel. His father was a firefighter. Tim has three siblings who, along with him, were raised in a lower-middle-class family in Chicago.
Tim Pool attended a Catholic School where he dropped out at the young age of 14. Later on in life as a teen, Tim found work as a baggage handler for American Eagle Airlines. Although Tim worked whatever jobs he could find, he was always interested in skateboards and technology. Before his career took off he lived with his brother in Virginia where he made videos about skateboarding. He never really thought of himself as a political person. It wasn’t until 2011 that everything changed for Tim Pool.
Tim started his career off with journalism in 2011. After seeing the protest going on in New York, Tim pool went and bought a one-way ticket there where he planned on broadcasting live the event for all to see. Tim never had any professional training in journalism but rather just filmed things he thought important enough to be seen on the news. Tim gained popularity as he covered the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protests. Tim live streamed using his phone at first before later on moving to drones and other aerial equipment. He used to phone via live stream to answer questions and concerns from those who could not make it to the protest and who was genuinely interested. Tim filmed for 24 hours one day when police were using force to try to remove protesters.
As the New York protests died down Tim thought of a new project that he went on to call the ‘Occumentary’. The purpose of this was to document protests all around the world as he thought the news and other documentaries left out important details or were sometimes biased. This project however never took off and instead later on in 2013, Tim found work covering protests in Ukraine, Turkey, Thailand and Egypt. He did this under the company Vice Media. In 2014 Tim Pool left Vice Media and joined another team called Fusion TV. There he was given the titles of senior correspondent and director of media innovation. In 2016 he left Fusion TV as his contract with the media group ended.
In 2017 Tim Pool traveled to Sweden for another investigation. This time he was there to conduct an investigation of the refugees and no-go zones. Tim set up a crowdfund and was donated by Paul Watson. Paul funded Tim under the condition that he stay in the crime-ridden suburbs. Pool agreed and stayed there shortly before receiving a police escort. He was staying in a Stockholm suburb called Rinkeby and called to be escorted out because he felt unsafe and claimed he was threatened. This became a dispute with the police because they denied giving him an escort and insisted that he simply followed them when they left.
In 2019 Tim Pool was invited on a podcast show by Joe Rogan. The name of his podcast show was ‘The Joe Rogan Experience’. This podcast was following an interview Tim had and he along with Joe shared their opinions on the Milo Yiannopoulos Twitter ban. In the same year, Pool was also invited to and attended an event at the White House that hosted internet personalities. Tim eventually broke off ties with any media company he would have worked with and went solo. He started putting his broadcasts on YouTube, Twitter and other social platforms instead. This was a gut move that worked out for Timothy in the end. Overall Tim’s journalism career has been a rewarding one. He has even received a ‘Shorty Award’ for best journalist.
Other than journalism, Tim Pool has helped to launch a mobile app where photographers and other media content creators can watermark their photos, etc. Tim Pool also co-founded a news company named ‘Subverse’. Tim Pool runs four successful YouTube channels. They are named Tim Pool, Timcast, Timcast Irl and Cast Castle. Two of his channels are dedicated to political commentary and similar content. The others are more personal with things like vlogging, skateboard videos, technology, and gaming. Together these four channels have around 3 and half million subscribers. His YouTube videos are now funded by donations and ads. Timothy no doubt has a large group of people that love his content as a journalist as his views match his subscriber count. This makes YouTube a significant part of his net worth.
