Finalist in YouTuber of the Year


Regarded as one of the world’s leading technology reviewers, Marques Brownlee, aka @MKBHD, discusses and demystifies all things tech. With 4M+ YouTube subscribers and millions more across his other social media accounts, Marques tailors the reviews to his fanbase, taking into account the community’s leanings and feedback. From gadget unboxings and iPhone7 musings to demoing the LG G Flex smartphone’s supposed self-healing ability, Marques’s videos regularly attract high-profile attention, from Forbes to TIME magazine. Though he regularly hosts interviews with tech innovators and celebrities, including 2016’s popular "Talking Tech with Kobe Bryant,” he recently found himself as the interviewee on astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson’s series StarTalk Radio.
