Countdown to

Mhykol's Next Scheduled Stream

Who is


My name is Mike and Mhykol comes from a weird spelling of “Michael” I decided to do way back when I was choosing a “screen name” for IRC and is pronounced exactly like “Michael”. I went to college in 2000 for Computer Systems Engineering and graduated with an Associates of Applied Science and have worked in IT for various companies ever since.

I started my YouTube series back in December of 2010 after seeing X’s Adventures in Minecraft and Coe’s Quest, played with Coe and Avidya on a public Minecraft server at the time and then started recording a single player series for YouTube. I was then introduced to Guude through a Race For Wool race we all participated in. Not long after that I was invited to join the Mindcrack server and I decided to end my single player series and start a multi-player series on Mindcrack after the next large Minecraft (beta 1.8) patch that introduced the nether and required a reset of the game save.

I have been married to my wonderful wife, Amy, since October of 2013 and stream regularly on Twitch playing whatever game I’m enjoying at the time and live in Minneapolis. I sometimes even go back to Minecraft with whatever major change or new modpack that comes out.
