About Bear

Headshot photo My name is Jowyn (Yo-win). Streaming since April 2017, PC gamer since 2008, playing games since 1991. I have always been terrible at games but it has never stopped me from enjoying them. To date FPS games are my favourite. I’ve competed in Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4. Currently my favourite game is Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. I do delve into the latest released games as well as the favourite oldies whether single player or with friends.  

I also like playing board games. I binge watch thriller/drama/ fantasy/science fiction movies or series. I make love to music. Photography, adventure and exploring nature comes second nature to me. I’ve taken in a stray cat. Her name is Fae, a cute fluffy ginger with a resting bitch face.  

I started streaming to get feedback on my gameplay and to entertain. I hope to continue building a community where everyone knows each other and joins for games. So don't be shy to come say hello and cheer me on, or feel free to lurk and watch me die a lot... even better yet join us for games, book on my roster.

Frequently Asked Questions

JowyBear is a combination of my birth name ‘Jowyn’ and my nickname ‘Bear’. My nickname I got from Gary, one of my closest friends and technical manager to the stream. Bear was his choice due to the dual meaning it holds regarding my persona. I’m a cute playful teddy bear, unless you piss me off...then you’ll experience the big aggressive bear with teeth and sharp claws.

Streaming has become a fulltime job. I started streaming end of April 2017, as it was winter time here in South Africa and out of season for the commercial and film industry here. Various friends rooted for me to try it out and so I had time to setup and try it out. Closer to the end of the year it has grown into a fulltime job, streaming for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. A lot of hours is also spent managing the stream and editing videos for my Youtube channel.
I’m currently in a relationship with this amazing man you all know as Dylan or The_Doctor53 \ gdcortes22. He has krept into the dustiest corners of my soul. Distance means so little when someone means so much.
I love the immersive feeling first person gives me, love the action and adrenaline rush shooter games give. This combination is in my opinion best played on PC.
