His channel features a range of content including comedic sketches, dramatic shorts, a wide array of songs/music, and vlogs (video-blogs). Chester crosses a variety of genres with his videos appealing to a broad audience.
Originally from Fairfield, California, Chester graduated from UCLA in 2005 with degrees in Economics and Theater Arts and began exploring acting and music projects. In 2006 he became host to Disney Channel’s “Disney 365” and began writing music for Warner/Chappell Music. Later that year, he was introduced to the online music scene by producer David Choi and was quick to explore the space. Chester then began uploading original music along with covers to the YouTube platform in 2007.
Since starting his self-titled channel, Chester has developed a loyal fan base delivering creative content with unique, recurring themes each week such as “Chester Knows” and “Justice.” His most viewed video is his original song “God Damn You’re Beautiful” which has received over 100,000 downloads and continues to air on radio stations on a global scale. The songs “Nice Guys” and “Bromance” have also received millions of views and have garnered over 300,000 downloads collectively. Chester plans to release more original songs, covers and sketches on his channel.
In 2012, Chester co-founded the now funded YouTube channel /YOMYOMF based on the pop culture blog YouOffendMeYouOffendMyFamily.com, created by THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS director Justin Lin.
In addition to Chester and Justin, /YOMYOMF partners include fellow YouTube stars Ryan Higa /Nigahiga and Kevin Wu aka /KevJumba, among others. Programming includes both scripted and reality series including “Reality Roboot (w/Chester See),” “Internet Icon,” “KevJumb Takes All,” “The Short List,” and more. Additionally, Chester, Ryan, and Kevin along with a number of other talented performers including Victor Kim, Andrew Garcia, JRA, and D-Trix, formed “YTF (Yesterday, Today, Forever) Legacy” a team that tours as a variety “supergroup”—dancing, singing, acting and performing for sold out crowds across the country.
