23-year-old David Dobrik is one of the most famous YouTubers on the internet, known for his 4 minute and 20 second long vlogs that chronicle the daily lives of him and his friends. Originally born in Košice, Slovakia, Dobrik moved to the United States when he was just six years old. He grew up in Vernon Hills, Illinois with three much younger siblings whom he sometimes features in his videos. Once he graduates high school, David’s parents gave him the choice of going to college or moving out. David completed one semester of community college before deciding to drop out and move to Los Angeles, California where he began filming videos. While now he is most known for his YouTube success, Dobrik actually began his career in high school on the Vine app.

Vine was a social media platform that allowed users to upload six-second videos. David Dobrik posted his first Vine in 2013. Originally he posted funny videos he made at home with his friends but after he began to gain popularity, David started collaborating with larger Viners such as Liza Kosy, Jason Nash, Gabbie Hanna, and Zane and Heath. Vine announced it would be disabling uploads in January of 2016, causing many prominent Vine influencers to leave the app and head to YouTube. David followed this trend and began uploading more regularly on his YouTube channel. Before leaving Vine, David said he made about $1,500-$2,000 per month on the app. Keep reading for our full David Dobrik net worth breakdown.
