Born in Bakersfield California and raised in Idaho, Destery was no stranger to immense boredom in the pits of despair that was Idaho. He started his first Youtube channel with his best friend Nathan in 2006 out of boredom and grew in popularity until that channel reached over 900,000 subscribers stemming from a viral video he created called "IDEK 9 1/2". In 2010 he started his own channel called Capndesdes which has now amassed over 1.3 Million Subscribers. In addition, he was the host for a show called WTF NEWS and WTF FIVE on Youtuber Shane Dawson's channel for over 5 years. In 2015, Destery released his first album called Sailing Home which reached #37 on iTunes pop charts. His love and passion for film, games, and music are his motivation to succeed and become even more recognized as an internet personality.
