Don Cairo started streaming back when Twitch was Justin TV and enjoys streaming all kinds of games for the community engagement and network of awesome people. His interests as an artist started at a very young age when he was trained to be a belly dancer. He was born in Cairo, Egypt and moved to the United States in 90s where he has spent most of his life in Cleveland, Ohio. Don had dreams of becoming a musician but his music career was cut short after he fell out of favor with his travelling barbershop quartet. Don’s second passion to gaming is probably sports and although some might consider that as masochism since he lives in Cleveland, he only sometimes goes off on sports tangents during I&B streams (thanks for the title LeBron!). After overcoming an addiction to a werewolf phone sex operator that nearly bankrupt him, he has a new lease on life and uses it to spread his new multi-level marketing business on his My Space page.
