Good Now! I hope you’re doing splentastic!
My name is Paul McNelis and this is my 3rd home, the 2nd being my YouTube channel (where I dump the majority of my creative energy), and the 1st being the actual house where I live with my wife and son in Southeastern Pennsylvania where we were all born, raised, and still reside.
After spending most of my 20’s, 30’s and 40’s trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life creatively, beyond simply being a husband and father, I stumbled onto the ASMR niche on YouTube in the spring of 2012. That’s when I realized the thing I experienced all my life had a name, and the rest is history. My YouTube channel and channel name were created in September 2011 prior to the whole ASMR thing.
I enjoy creating a wide variety of videos ranging from whisper-quiet, relaxing, traditional & avant-garde ASMR videos to unfiltered, freeform podcasts covering every topic under the sun and beyond. Except the podcast is currently on hiatus so the channel is now mainly ASMR.
I am in independent, D.I.Y., jack-of-all-trades master-of-none with a variety of interests just like anyone else. I’m also an ex-Roman Catholic turned non-believer, critical thinker, freethinker, cynical optimist, skeptic, artist, actor, comedian, unpublished amateur writer/lyricist/poet, photographer, videographer, director, producer, video editor, sound designer, Foley artist, audio engineer, costume designer, set designer, prop designer, makeup artist, foodie, gamer, and even a hybrid stoic-nihilist-humanist-naturalist-anarchist who belongs to no group nor ideology.
Oh, and I was diagnosed in 2010 with having an Acoustic Neuroma in my left ear which led to permanent hearing loss and tinnitus in that ear. So I’m like a modern-day Beethoven, except I suck at composing music.
