About MarkE Miller

Art director and videographer MarkE Miller intimately documents day-to-day life with his boyfriend and fellow YouTuber Ethan Hethcote, meeting in Indiana while still in college and moving to LA to co-found their media company Everyday Productions. Mark and Ethan like to simply enjoy life, living by the mantra, “Everyday is a great day. Let’s do something great together.” Their vlogs show them having a blast, whether it’s taking the “CHAPSTICK CHALLENGE” (as a good excuse to kiss on camera) or Mark pulling a “SCARY BOYFRIEND PRANK” on Ethan. Mark’s 625K+ subscribers and nearly 100M views allowed him to partner with Listerine this year as part of their #BringOutTheBold campaign.
