Tom Cassell, also known as Tom Syndicate, is a known British YouTube personality and vlogger.
He is known for his YouTube channel named The Syndicate Project which is amongst the most subscribed YouTube channels on the website.
He was born on June 23, 1993 in Manchester in England. He has a sister named Alice with whom he has spent his childhood and he is still in good relations with her.
He was a pupil at the blue coat Secondary School in Oldham in Manchester.
Eventually he took his A level exams at Clarendon Six Form College and decided not to pursue his university career.
He decided to concentrate on his YouTube career. He was always an awesome game player but didn’t know that he could make a career out of it.
His father was very sceptic and scared that his son won’t have a career which would give him enough income for a normal life.
All through schooling he was working at McDonald’s but he has quit that at the same time when he left school.
He created his YouTube channel in 2010 and originally he uploaded his play videos on the channel and there were mostly connected to games such as “Halo” and “Modern Warfare”.
His family wasn’t thrilled by this but after his father whitnessed the growing popularity and rising number of followers he stopped questioning his son’s career choice.
Tom gained more fame after he started playing “Call of Duty: Black Ops” where he excelled in the “zombie mode”. His popularity grew rapidly and he became even more in the focus after he started playing “The Minecraft Project”.
He has another YouTube channel and it was first named Syndicate Central but today it called “Life of Tom” and the channel is based on vlogging.
This vlogging channel has over 2 million followers.
He has millions of followers on his Twitter account called @prosyndicate and on Instagram under the username @Syndicate.
In 2014 he launched a multi-channel network called Jetpack and he did it alongside another known YouTuber called Adam Montoya (also known as SeaNanners). The two of them did it in collaboration with “3blackdot” media company.
Tom is the vice president of gambling website named csgoLotto.com.
The site is involved in very controversial legal dispute.
He has his own clothing line named similar as his YouTube channel and it’s called “Syndicate Original”.
Syndicate Original stores are open both in United Kingdom and in United States.
His channel is very viewed and in 2014 he reached the number of 1 million followers which was the first time for any Twitch personality to reach that number.
He had legal problems with Federal Trade Commission more than once and he had them during his career as a YouTuber.
The first time was when he was paid $30,000 by Microsoft to promote Xbox One and it was in 2013. He didn’t reveal how much money he gained and FTC is very strict in this matter.
In 2015 Tom and Montoya had again raised big issues with Federal Trade Commission because they have published their let’s play videos of a game called “Dead Realm” without telling anything about their financial connection with the same product.
He came to the same trouble in 2016 when he promoted his own gambling website without sharing any information that he is the vice president of the same gambling website.
After this situation he put a notice on his account that he will, from now on, be more transparent about his business and the revenues he receives from different sources.
He gave voice to a character named Lucky in a Marvel game called “Avengers Academy” which was released in 2017.
He was also invited to be a member of ‘British Academy Games Awards’ judging panel.
He travells a lot outside UK due to the gaming events on which he is invited.
As for his love life, he keeps all the info to himself, doesn’t post or share any personal data so we are not sure is he single or not.
Tom has a bearded dragon lizard for a pet and he gave him the name Steve.
