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!

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.

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 media, 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.

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 at university. I’m also a fan of Star Wars, aviation, and Doctor Who.

Joshua Warden
Age 20
Nottingham, United Kingdom
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 for 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!
