James “UberHaxorNova” Wilson was born on 1 June 1990, in the United States of America. He is a YouTube personality, comedian, and gamer, best known for previously being associated with the YouTube group, TheCreatureHub. The group is known for their frequent collaborations on video games. He was also previously involved with the channel called CowChop.
The Net Worth of UberHaxorNova
How rich is UberHaxorNova? As of early-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is over $4 million, earned through a successful career on YouTube. He is also known for his personal YouTube channel content, his focus on WWE gaming videos, and his work with the company Machinima. As he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and YouTube Beginnings
Very limited information is available about UberHaxorNova’s life before YouTube. There are almost no details regarding his family, childhood, education, and his path before starting his online career. It is known that prior to joining YouTube, he lived with his mother and their dogs in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and worked at the Twizzlers factory, a brand of candy produced in the area.
He then discovered a potential for a career in YouTube, which at the time was relatively new. The website allowed users to upload their own content for others to view. Viewers can then rate, comment, and subscribe to channels that they enjoy watching. The website owned by Google has become one of the most popular in the world and allows content creators to earn money through Google’s AdSense program which uses advertisements as the name connotes. He started his personal channel UberHaxorNova in 2008, and started uploading gaming videos, making him one of the earliest to create gaming related content on the website.
Rise to Fame
Aside from his work on his personal channel, UberHaxorNova also frequently uploaded to the Machinima channel. The company started out in 2000, and is based on the term machinima which means to manipulate video game technology to create animation. The channel became one of the earliest gaming focused-channels on YouTube and he began regularly uploading to the main channel, before focusing on Machinima Respawn, which focused on gaming as the main channel diverted to other types of content. He frequently worked with hosts such as Adam Montoya and Scott Robinson, staying with the company until large budget cuts meant that he could no longer work for them.
He is also known to be one of the early collaborators of YouTube personality PewDiePie. who at the time was just earning popularity before becoming the most subscribed channel on YouTube. The two became a forefront in gaming commentary videos, let’s play videos, and the like, but their work together would eventually end after UberHaxorNova joined the group called the Creatures in 2010, a decision made because he had frequently collaborated with other members of the group including Sp00nerism with whom he had already created numerous multiplayer series.
The Creatures, Cow Chop, and Recent Projects
Another reason UberHaxorNova joined The Creatures was due to the fact that many of its members were originally from Machinima, and he was already friends with most of them. The group members started collaborating frequently together on each of their channels. They gained a lot of success together for the next few years, and started living near each other to easily produce content. However, this era of success started winding down, stemming from a problem between a few members.
One of their popular YouTube members GassyMexican, had trouble with a few members leading to being inactive and eventually kicked from the group. This caused a lot of criticisms towards The Creatures on a possible politically motivated action – other members left while some joined, and in 2016 the group’s founders then decided that The Creatures content would now be more directed to children. This move did not bode well for many of the other members, including Nova who had thought of the group as a more adult oriented channel. He left the group to return his focus on another channel – Cow Chop – which included him alongside a few other former Creatures members.

For his personal life, it is known that UberHaxorNova is in a relationship with Hannah Pierre, also known as sosadhannah. She was a Twitch streamer focused on making video game-related content, but has since moved away from streaming to focus on other projects. In 2019, Nova was doing stunts with a skateboard for a video intended to be uploaded to Cow Chop, but had an accident in which he dislocated his shoulder and broke his ankle in two places.
He had to be taken to hospital to re-set the shoulder and it was a likely that he would also have surgery to repair his ankle. After some time of consideration, he decided to leave Cow Chop a few months later. Similar to other YouTube personalities, he is active online through an account on Twitter on which he does a lot of promotion of his YouTube and Twitch content. He also posts his daily thoughts from time to time. In recent months, he’s been more focused on making Twitch content, as it has proven to be a more lucrative avenue for him.
