The Janoskians (Just Another Name Of Silly Kids In Another Nation) are a YouTube comedy group hailing from Melbourne, Australia, and are now based in Los Angeles. The group consists of elder brother Beau Brooks, twins Luke and Jai Brooks, and best friend Daniel Sahyounie. The Janoskians have over 20 million devoted followers across multiple social media platforms, and have garnered over 200 million views on YouTube. In March 2015, the group’s North American and European Got Cake comedy and music tour was so popular, they were brought back to the UK for a sold-out, one-night-only show at London’s Wembley Stadium. Their personal appearances draw so many fans that they’ve been known to shut down huge venues, including the Beverly Center in Los Angeles, Times Square in NYC, and Hyde Park in London. Their recent LP Would U Love Me hit #1on the iTunes chart in the UK and Greece, and was also in the top 10 in 10 other markets.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
