Coyote Peterson’s Bio (Real Name)
As it is known that coyote refers to those wild dogs that look like wolves and mostly found in North America, people have always wondered if it’s the real name of the American Adventurer. While it’s difficult to precisely tell how he came to adopt the name, it is no secret that the YouTuber was named Nathaniel Peterson after he was born on the 1st of September and in the year 1981. His place of birth was in Newbury, Ohio.
Raised in a rural suburb in Cleveland, Ohio, it is said that Coyote Peterson has always been fascinated by animals. As a child, he spent most of his play time outdoors, thoroughly searching for creatures in stream beds and nearby forested wetland. While this nurtured his desire for an adventure into the wild, he didn’t abandon his education for it.
Check his records, you will find that he was a student of the Catholic college-prep school located in Chardon, Ohio – Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin High School. Presumably, it was here that he discovered his love for making movies; this inspired him to study video production at the public research university in Columbus, Ohio – The Ohio State University.
Coyote would later create a profession for himself by combining his love for wildlife and video production. He pursued a videography career which revolves around filming his adventures in the wild. YouTube was there to serve as a platform for him to show what he does to the world and that marked the birth of Brave Wilderness.
His Net Worth
If figures don’t lie, then you don’t need to be told that Coyote Peterson has been successful in his career. The number of subscribers and views his channel have been able to accumulate are indicators that the adventurer has amassed an enviable fortune over the years.
Apart from the earnings that come from YouTube, Peterson has a shop attached to his website (bravewilderness.com) and has authored two books. In all, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the man is financially independent. While various sources have estimated the total value of his wealth at $2 million, we haven’t been able to substantiate this in any meaningful way.
