Carter Hollister was born in the breast of wealth. The second of three siblings, he never had a chance to indulge in the so-called middle-child syndrome. His life was one of privilege and attention from his first day. Of course the attention oftentimes came from nannies and other employed personnel.
As the story goes, his parents were very involved in their high society duties. His father, the head of the Hollister estate, held important business titles in managing the family business conglomerate, whose history extended far back centuries. His mother, a socialite, was a force to be reckoned with and the iron fist of their household.
As he grew up, Carter quickly grasped the way of things in his social circle. There were no abandonment issues, no rebellion over his parents' attention being directed elsewhere from the upbringing of their children. His parents loved their children in the best way they knew how. Children were a symbol of status, a financial investment and a coin of trade. None of that meant there lacked love in the Hollister household. They simply did not fall for the sentimentality displayed by peers in other social circles.
The three Hollister siblings were groomed to be worthy of the estate they'd inherit. Highly educated and trained in a variety of skills, they each took to their strengths. Carter was always a bright child, a quick study in everything he proposed to do. From languages to sports, there was always something new in which to excel. Though he dabbled in everything, it was his curiosity that stood out in every endeavor.
It was not uncommon for the child to tear apart toys he received. Rather than destroy them, Carter craved to learn how they worked. Before long, the toys were reassembled, custom modifications and even improvements made to their base design. It was this curiosity, coupled with an entrepreneurial spirit, that won him titles in every Science Fair and competition throughout his school years. Once college applications rolled around, Carter had a slew of choices to pick from. Though many would point out his privilege as an entrance card to the Ivy League schools, Carter preferred to be less cynical about it.
Picking a major involved a lot of angst and a few dry runs. He was interested in everything. Narrowing it down was almost offensive. Eventually, under pressure to start his adult life beyond college, he settled on an Archeology major, with an Engineering minor. It could be seen by some as a self-serving choice to cater to his love of exploring ancient cultures and the more modern interest of robots and innovation. But beyond fun, it was also a business decision. Carter was set to take over, along with his brother, the Marine Exploration and Artifacts trade branch of the family business.
Up until 28, Carter followed in the steps that were laid down for him in life. His resignation from the family business on Christmas Eve of 2010 caused an uproar in his family. His father threatened to cut him off and his mother had several
guilt-trips conversations to change his mind. It was to no avail. Carter had broken free.
In the end, he and his parents made up (it took three years, but who was counting?) and his trust fund was maintained. With a lot of free time on his hands and wanting to go in a completely opposite direction, Carter gave into his creative urges and started his own YouTube channel. As money was no object, he hired professional cameramen and video editors for the weekly new video that went up. His background in management had social networking down to a T and in a matter of months, his subcription numbers went up to thousands. His charisma and good looks helped establish him as a prominent "internet celebrity".
Carter fancies himself a bit of a Bear Grylls, where he posts adventures around the globe, along with videos shot at home for Bachelor Lifestyle tricks and tips. His channel is advertised as one for single men, "bros", but the fact that he picks the aesthetics of his guests to pander to his followers makes it so a lot of women and gay men follow him, as well.
