For a decade, Team YANTSU, the organisation that runs our live stream, has been entertaining thousands every Christmas Eve. It wouldn’t be possible without our legendary team of Christmas-spirited, die-hard members!

 

Liam Warden
Age 19 
United Kingdom
I’m a member of the Board of Directors for the team and associate with developing all of the graphical work for the website and imagery for Santa Cams. I am also a regular host on our Annual Show! Outside of the team, I have an interest in football (soccer) and I’m currently studying at the University of Sheffield for a Journalism Studies degree.

 

Brayden Thomas
Age 21 
Canada
I am one of the team’s original founding members from 2008, and have actively been apart of the planning of each show since! Tracking the big man every Christmas has become a favourite tradition of mine, and I love doing it with this amazing team. While usually behind the scenes, I usually help out most with social medias, general planning, and doing Santa Cam voice-overs. Outside of YANTSU, my interests include hiking, ice hockey, air-soft, and kayaking. I have a strong passion for nature, which took me to my current studies of Environmental Science at Dalhousie University.

 

Max McIntyre
Age 17
Portsmouth, United Kingdom
I’ve been a member of YANTSU for 2 years, and a Santa tracker for 10! Since I was 6 years old, tracking the big red guy has been a highlight of my Christmas every year. My work for the team involves helping to innovate and develop new ideas, as well as hosting the show on the big day. I live in the south of the UK, where I’m currently studying for my A-levels with an ambition to go on and study computer science at university. I’m also a fan of Star Wars, aviation and Doctor Who.

 

Joshua Warden
Age 19
Nottingham, United Kingdom
I am Josh, the recruitment manager of Team YANTSU and I have had two separate spells on the team over the years. I first joined the group 2 years after I started tracking in September 2011 and participated in the third annual live show. I found that great fun and after a brief spell away from the group I returned to the group in 2015 and have been a member ever since. A bit about myself; I am currently at university studying computer science, a subject that I want to excel at and pursue further as a career. I absolutely love football (soccer) with a passion of watching a team called Derby County every week. I’ve had a plethora of experience both in tracking Santa and being on YouTube and every year has that same nostalgic excitement that I revel in. I hope to see you at the live show!

 

Luke Dillon
Age 17
Indiana, United States
I’ve been tracking with Team YANTSU since around 2010, and I’ve loved every minute of it. I’m more of a behind-the-scenes guy here and help run the social media. I’m close to graduating from high school, and hope to go into the sports journalism field. I hope to see you at the show!

 

 

Jason Strait
Age 19
Barnstaple, United Kingdom
Hi I’m Jason and I have been a member of YANTSU since September 2013. On show day, you can usually find me helping out with Social Media and behind the scene stuff. Some personal things about me include that I like to read (favorite book is The Hunger Games) and cook. I’m also currently getting ready to go to culinary school in the fall to pursue a “cooking and management” diploma so I can open up my own bakery/cafe.

 


Marcus Pearl

I’ve been with YANTSU since its inception in 2007. Patric Covey, Brayden Thomas, myself, along with Luke Dillon put this group together. I am currently an honorary member, as the next generation prepares to take the mantle.

Chase Galley
Age 17

Nebraska, United States
I have been tracking for as long as I can remember. I was just laying in my bed thinking about when Santa will come and I want to have kids keep that same feeling rather than lose hope and that’s why I joined Team YANTSU.

 

Connor Fawcett
Age 16

West Yorkshire, United Kingdom
I’ve been tracking Santa since I was very young, and it has something which has stuck with me since then. Every year, it’s so relaxing to just sit down and relax and enjoy the festive season to its fullest.

 

 

Alex Nicoll

I have been a Santa tracker my whole life, although this is my second year with Team YANTSU. I have interests in and play football (American), aviation, and history. I’m currently in high school and plan to get a law degree at a university after high school. I’m very excited for this year’s tracking season and show!

 

Connor Hill
Age 15

I’ve been tracking Santa ever since 2009, when I was a little kid. Since then, it’s been a tradition of mine to track Santa with NORAD every single Christmas. I’m very new to Team YANTSU, because I just joined in July of 2019. I’m very excited to see myself grow with this awesome team! In my spare time, I love watching movies, playing video games, drumming, and reading comics. I’m excited for this year’s 11th Annual TrackingSanta LIVE Show, and don’t forget to tune in to it on December 24th!
