About Scooter Magruder
My full name is Cameron David Magruder. I was born and raised in Orlando Florida, the city beautiful. At the age of 14, I was on the reality show Endurance 2. This experience sparked my initial interest in the entertainment industry and I’ve been hooked ever since.
I attended the University of Florida where I majored in film production. Although I had previously taken film courses in high school, it was during my stay at Florida where I refined my craft. I graduated cum laude in the spring of 2011.
After graduating, I enrolled in a 10-month Americorp program. During this program I began making videos on YouTube. They were horrible at first. Really bad. But they got better over time. I decided to begin releasing one video per week.
During the summer of 2012, at the conclusion of my Americorp program, I was selected in an international competition as 1 of 16 YouTube Next Vloggers. Next Vloggers received $10,000 worth of advertising and $5,000 worth of equipment from YouTube. More importantly, as a Next Vlogger I was able to receive mentorship from some of the top content creators on YouTube!
Upon completing the Next Vlogger program, I decided to go full-time into pursuing YouTube as a career.
