Shayne "Styler" Reeves is a British Variety streamer, and the owner for The Zeal Team. He is known for being a positive, loud person who pushes his content through joy and high energy.
Reeves was born in Burnley, North England. He grew up during the race wars of Burnley in the 1990s, and his family moved to the south of England, specifically Weston S Mare when he was 12, to escape. Playing games was always an escape for him. As people were on the streets, fighting during the race wars, Styler would distract himself by playing video games. Since then games have always been a huge part of his life, especially when he had a significant loss when Shayne was 16 years old. Video games created a distraction away from the world during his low points.
He has worked as a window cleaner, in the town he lived, before moving onto become a support worker, and more recently a mental health professional. As a mental health professional, he uses his streams to give his life experiences back to people, and demonstrate that no matter what is going on with your life, there is an escape, and that escape can be gaming. That is why Styler turned to streaming, to give other people the opportunity to use a stream or a game to escape the pressures and obstacles of life.
He also founded The Zeal Team. Team Zeal was forged with the vision of building a united team of streamers, deemed to be charismatic, fun, supportive and friendly. Their mission is to develop a community where love, support and positivity flourishes. They are all about pushing that positive mindset! They envision the Team Zeal name and logo representing an escape from real life. The world can be a horrible place at times, so they want Team Zeal to be a place where people can escape to for a while; a safe place to have a chat and make new friends.
