Taras was born in 1987 in today’s Ukraine but his family relocated to the US in 2009. At first, young Taras was working at a local Walmart but in his spare time, he dedicated himself to his YouTube channels. And eventually, his channel CrazyRussianHacker skyrocketed and soon made him enough money from online advertisement that he could quit his job.
He identifies as a Russian-American. Although originally living in Ukraine (or to be more precise self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic), his family speaks Russian and he considers himself to be of Russian origin. His YouTube logo adopts a lot of cues from the Soviet era, and he uses this to market his brand of “craziness”.
