The British YouTuber posted his first video in 2014, wherein he was playing Domination. The 18-second long video was just him doing back-to-back across map suicide shots. Up until June 2016, he posted such shot clips of him playing video games.

In June 2016, Jarvis uploaded a video titled “Welcome to my channel.” He said that he would upload not just gaming videos but also real-life videos, adding that he would upload as much as he could. However, the next video was uploaded in May 2018 — two years later.
The 19-year-old YouTuber gained popularity mostly from Fortnight, a video game that was at its peak in 2018. He even quit his school at the age of 15 to play the famous game, which led him to join the FaZe Clan later. Since then, he started collaborating with other YouTubers and making videos and has not stopped to date.

There have been various controversies surrounding Jarvis. In June 2019, he was suspended from Twitch for using copyrighted music while streaming. He had received the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) takedown, and it took him some time to get his account back.
The biggest one of them is him being banned from Fortnite for life.
Jarvis was found using aimbot, a program that allows gamers to cheat by automatically helping them aim the weapon. He was cheating in a couple of Fortnite Battle Royale matches. Even though the game developer doesn’t detect such aimbots, Jarvis had made a video of him using the program.
Given the fact that he used such aimbots via his alternate account during Season X, Epic Game, the developer of Fortnite, decided to ban Jarvis from the game forever.
Epic Games justified the ban, saying they have a zero-tolerance policy regarding the usage of cheat software and that it is unfair to those who play Fortnite fairly.
The gamer apologized to his fans and the Fortnite creators, claiming he never used the aimbots in matches but only for instructional videos.
He also said, via Twitter, that he would have never used aimbots if he knew that getting a life ban would be its consequence. These controversies have not stopped Jarvis from making and uploading more content and YouTube videos to his fans and followers.
