Ackley was born in McGraw, New York.
Around the time he started high school in 2008, he began with musicals starting with his high school production of "Oliver!" in 2009.
Ackley Attack TV and YouTube
Right before he signed up onto YouTube, back in Late-2007 to Mid-2008, he first founded Ackley Attack TV as a film company first where he can make some movies. His first plans was to make an independent Thomas the Tank Engine film called, "Thomas and the Lost Temple of Sodor," but sadly, it was scrapped when it was first started due to lack of interest.
On October 24, 2008, he decided to bring it to an audience around the globe via internet, by creating a YouTube channel known as "Ackleyattack4427." There was no information on how he created his channel in the first place. But, rumor has it that he created that name after he watched an episode of "Phineas and Ferb" where Dr. Doofenshmirtz had a profile on a dating website known as "Strudelcutie4427." Currently, there was no radio interview or news broadcast on this guy, but has been recognized by almost everyone.
