"Let's ice these mothertruckers!"
On 23rd March 2013, his channel reached a million subscribers, making him the third Yogscast member to reach the milestone (the first two being BlueXephos and YogscastLalna). Sjin was always very slightly behind Duncan in the subscriber count, which is why Duncan was the one to first reach one million subscribers, but only 3 days later Sjin accomplished the same. Later in April, Sjin surpassed Duncan in subscriber count, making him the second largest Yogscast channel, right behind the main channel.
Sjin was present at Gamescom 2012 and appears in the coverage on the main Yogscast YouTube channel.
Sjin was a member of the original goon guild Ye Olde Goone Squade, where he earned server renown as the realm's first Grand Marshal.
He is originally from the village of Yetminster in Dorset, England.
Sjin, the builder, the adventurer, the technician, the spaceman, the gentleman - he wears many hats. Joining the Yogscast in 2011, Sjin's impressive Minecraft 'Let's Builds' and (sometimes) skillful 'Let's Plays' make his videos unmissable.
Both Sjin and Duncan destroyed the server in the Tekkit series and each other's houses in a fight: Sjin's by Duncan, using two nukes and Duncan's by Sjin via a nuclear reactor meltdown in Duncan's basement.
Afterwards, he and Sips packed their belongings (or what was left of them) and sailed away to find a new land. Their boat however crashed and they found themselves washed ashore not far from where Simon, Lewis and Duncan were starting their own company just over the hill.
They quickly got around to building a make-shift little hovel to survive in for the first few nights and then went about building an actual house and machines so they could re-establish their dirt factory.
Upon learning about the location of Honeydew Inc., Sjin set off to make a decoy building over there so they wouldn’t discover where the real base of operations would be. He was then later fired by Sips when he couldn't properly sort out the dirt from the quarry and Lewis (who had recently quit Honeydew Inc.) was instead hired. With nowhere to go he went to Simon and Duncan who gave him some clothes and hired him to do their gardening. After leaving him for a while they came back to inspect what he had done and discovered that he’d built a fence out of dirt and hadn't replanted any seeds at all. Dissatisfied Simon fired him and then beat him with a stick.
Fired, (again) he set about making his own company which he dubbed “Sjin’s Independent Dirt Trader”. After Lewis was fired, Sips realized that he had no idea how to work things on his own so he returned to Sjin with a request re-hire him. Sjin refused the offer forcing Sips to give him 50% of the company shares and changing the name from ‘Sips Co.’ to ‘Sjips Co.’ However catchy, they have rarely spoken of Sjips Co., reverting to Sips Co. whenever questioned or in conversation.
- It was revealed in episode 6 of Question Time with Sips that Sjin suffers from conjoined toes, which lead to a long debate over whether or not it would make him swim faster.
- Sjin started his channel in early February 2012, the earliest video available on his channel is Let's Build: A Castle part 1.
- Sjin is also an avid Minecraft builder; he has helped with the building of the Shadow of Israphel series and has shown off his building skills in his 'Let's Build' series.
- Sjin was born on the 24th December in 1983.
- Sjin is half Scottish, as claimed in Nilesy's Diamonds in the Rough #8. In his Q&A, Sjin said that his grandparents were Scottish.
- According to his Tumblr, Sjin plays Spacker LeChuck, Madame Nubescu, and Israphel in Shadow of Israphel. In his Q&A, he said he played Granny Bacon when Simon licked her icing.
- Sjin's favourite Pokémon is Magikarp.
- He has confessed to being a huge fan of Game of Thrones and Harry Potter, the latter he has the audiobooks for.
- Sjin is a great singer, this is proven in the 2012 Christmas Livestreams.
- As of March 23rd 2013, Sjin has now over 1 million subscribers on YouTube.
- Sjin comes from the village of Yetminster of Dorset in South Western England.

- Sjin has an aunt (and presumably more family) who lives in Australia as discovered in Sjin's Farm.
- Sjin has a younger brother named David, as stated in an episode of Hardcore Skyblock.
- Sjin is considering having laser eye surgery due to Lewis convincing him that it is "all the rage" nowadays. However, since his eyesight isn't that bad, it is unlikely he will actually do it.
