One of the top tech YouTubers today started making YouTube videos back in high school about 10 years ago. He was mostly making hardware tutorials and freeware. Today, he has over 10M subscribers and over a billion views. His videos always look sharp and his content is interactive as well as informative. There is a subreddit called MKBHD where Marques Brownlee’s videos are discussed.
Fun fact: Marques is actually a professional ultimate frisbee player. But yeah, he’s mostly known for his tech-focused videos. Something people ask and comment a lot about is Marques Brownlee’s height. He’s a pretty tall guy and says that he inherited it from his Dad – but apparently not only his height. FYI, they look pretty identical as well. He shares that he actually learned to be patient from his Dad, who was actually the one who inspired Marques’ passion for tech and as a result jump-started his career in YouTube becoming one of the most well-known tech heads on the platform. The YouTuber’s huge following and success enlarged his network and he had the fortunate opportunity to sit and chat with many influential people like Mark Zuckerberg, Will Smith, Bill Nye the science guy, Bill Gates and Barack Obama.
Marques created a TV program and has a podcast called Waveform: MKBHD Podcast. His YouTube original TV program is called Retro Tech. It’s a creative space where Marques talks about the origin and nostalgia of iconic tech. Retro Tech has been nominated for the DayTime Emmy Awards. He tries not to let work consume him though. His 2020 New Year’s resolution was prioritizing his self-care, and so he shared in a post that there was this day that he was working at his studio and all of a sudden he got up in the middle of editing a video, drove home and went to sleep. The guy isn’t all talk. Good for him.
And it all pays off in the end. 2020 was a pretty good year for Marques’ career. He was a YouTube Streamy Awards nominee in October of 2020 for best in technology and creator of the year. And guess what? Yup. He was the YouTube Streamy Awards winner in 2020. Brownlee was also featured in Forbes 30 Under 30 representing the internet team. One of the best tech YouTubers has collaborated with brands like Google, Apple, Tesla and Nike. Marques Brownlee’s net worth is around $2 million each year – and the guy doesn’t seem to be taking his foot off the pedal anytime soon.
