When Rubén Doblas Gundersen, aka El Rubius, started his Youtube channel in 2006, he had no idea what he was getting himself into. Since then, he’s built an incredible following of fans who follow his daily gaming adventures. This young lad was always passionate about video games growing up. Born on the 13th of February 1990, in Mijas, Andalusia, Spain, he chose to pursue a career in the gaming industry after realising the kind of potential it had. He was a bit of a visionary because he could see where the industry was going before most of us.
This gamer’s first video was that of a Grand Theft Auto IV game in English. He has come a long way since then. Although this lad was able to turn his passion for playing video games into a lucrative career, he still makes sure to take the time to enjoy his life outside of work. He feels fortunate to be able to create a life for himself by doing what he loves. Rubius believes that hard work is the key to success, but he emphasizes that you shouldn’t get discouraged if you don’t achieve your goals right away. Whilst some think that it’s easy for him to say, this man’s 40 million subscribers on Youtube are going to disagree with you.

Rubius doesn’t have any kids of his own.
