AboutAbout

Hi! I’m Kolo (she/her), a UK-based live streamer and content creator since 2018. My favourite things are great storytelling, open world adventures, gardening, sci-fi and accessibility! My primary platform is Twitch (partnered since 2018!), but you can also find me on YouTube, Instagram, X/Twitter and TikTok. My little corners of the internet are PG-13 (ish!) environments, focused on a mix of upbeat entertainment, creativity and kindness.

My content is community focus and often includes gaming, accessibility or both! I am an ambulatory wheelchair user due to nerve damage that affects my right leg, and I also play games partially with my feet; yes really! have a condition called peripheral spondyloarthritis, which primarily affects my hands and arms, making prolonged holding/gripping/button mashing painful.
I am able to play games using a combination of both my hands and feet, via foot switches mounted to a guitar pedal board for foot controls, and a traditional controller resting in my lap (not gripped!). The foot pedal switches connect to either the Xbox Adaptive Controller or the PlayStation Access Controller, depending on which platform I’m playing on. These foot switches are usually keybound to the shoulder button actions of a traditional controller. Playing games in this way avoids the need to grip a mouse or a controller, limits the strain my hands take, and enables me to play most games that offer full native controller support.

My chosen charity is SpecialEffect, who I’m proud to be an ambassador for! SpecialEffect make gaming accessible to all, regardless of physical ability, and they were fundamental in helping me set up my very first adaptive controls. In the past five years, my community and I have raised over $94,000 (£74,800) for them!

Come say hello sometime, ’cause it’d be lovely to meet you!
