Lawrence Sonntag is not only known as an American actor and speaker but also as the host of several shows and podcasts. He really is a versatile media personality, as there are some who call him a gaming journalist and editor.
Age, Early Life, and Rise to Fame
The actor was born Lawrence Michael Sonntag on June 7, 1983, in Dallas, Texas, and also grew up in his birthplace. Very little, if any, information about his father, mother, and siblings is available to the public. However, it is known that he attended Azle High School in Azle, Texas, and graduated in 2001. From the University of Texas, Dallas, he holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Computer Science, which he received in 2006. Despite his degree in computer science, the player now works as a freelance writer.
In May 2006, as a recent graduate, Michael was offered a position at AGRO Data Resource Corporation and stayed there for about a year as a software engineer. He also gained experience as a review manager and freelance video game writer. He joined Machinima.com in January as a producer.
Lawrence was popularly known as “The Talking Head” of Inside Gaming, but most people don’t know the origin of that name. Well, it didn’t start planning, it just happened and got stuck. Before moving to Cincinnati, Lawrence was faced with the responsibility of maintaining the blog and creating newsletters. When he moved, Bruce (a co-host of Inside Gaming) had the idea to check their content via Skype before every show. On a certain day, after the usual Skype check, Bruce forgot to disconnect and they started shooting. When the guys made a wrong sentence, they were promptly corrected by Lawrence, who had been watching the whole time. Everyone thought his reaction from a computer was great, so it stayed that way and he worked there until February 2015 when he went to Rooster Teeth to join Rooster Teeth as their lead producer.
Rooster Teeth is an entertainment and media company. Its main locations are Austin, Texas, London, and Los Angeles. As an employee of Rooster Teeth, Lawrence works on shows such as The Know and Funhaus. While working as a co-host and games journalist, he also produces and edits the content of the shows. In the shows, he expresses his passion for games. He also responds to his question and answer segment and talks about technological products, movies, and TV shows. What distinguishes him is the relaxed and funny way he inserts his comments and answers. His fans love it and so do we.
