SILVER SPRING, Md.– With over 3,500 subscribers on YouTube, 16-year-old Daniel Greigg has taken over the YouTube cubing community with his channel Light’s Camera Cubing.
In middle school, Daniel developed a fierce fascination with Rubik’s cubes and to this day finds great joy in the challenges they present.
“I just love going out to competitions, hanging out with people, and competing,” said Daniel.
On June 14, 2016, he decided to take his passion to the next level by creating a YouTube channel to share his interests in cubing with the rest of the world.
“I saw a lot of other people doing [cubing videos] and I wanted to jump on the bandwagon. I really liked making videos and thought that making cubing videos and sharing them with other people would be a lot of fun.”
Within the last two years of his channel, Daniel has gained thousands of subscribers and garners up to 28,000 views on his videos.
“Honestly, I was fairly optimistic and thought I could do a good job,” said Daniel, anticipating his success from the get-go.
Daniel specializes in unboxing cubes and giving his first impressions on the cubes that are sent to him, additionally uploading videos of him doing challenges as well as blogs that vary up his content.
“I give a lot of reviews of new puzzles, so a lot of times, when a new puzzle comes out, I’ll get it from the Cubicle. They sponsor my channel so they’ll send it to me for free,” said Daniel.
In addition to a sponsorship, having a well-known YouTube channel has better incorporated him into the cubing community.
“I’ve had a lot of people come up to me from online and say, ‘hey, are you Lights Camera Cubing?’ and I like, ‘yeah! I am!’, so that’s a lot of fun being recognized.”
