We want to know a little bit about you! Tell us where you’re from and what you do for a living?
I am from Paradise California, the town that is now known around the world. 8 months ago this answer would have been very different. We survived a catastrophic fire that burned our town down.
It is a miracle we are alive. I feel like I have been given a second chance at life, and want to live my dreams. Art has given me a way to speak out, a voice, and a way to process.

The Receipt Keeper D'Angelo Wallace always knows how to cut through the chaos.
IF YOU WANT TO KNOW what’s going on with YouTubers or anybody else with a modicum of influence online, you’ve got two options. You can watch their videos and scour Instagram—or you can get thee to a YouTube drama channel. And no one does a channel quite like D’Angelo Wallace. The Texas-based 22-year-old packs his superlong explainer videos (many of them run over an hour) with timelines, charts, and commentary—a hybrid model that perfectly encapsulates the messiness of the influencers he covers. He now has more than 2.18 million subscribers. “I will say it’s not necessarily a case of me always striving to have the best research, or I’m always going to be 100 percent correct,” Wallace said. “I just am obsessed with the storytelling of it all.”
