Ahoj! My name is Marketa, the queen of the unidentifiable accent. I was born and raised in the Czech Republic, lived in Turkey for a year and when I was done with school, I tried my luck and moved to the USA. And here I am now, with the love of my life, Chris, and with this bunch of Normies!
Here are some fun Marketa stats:
I love being creative in my own ways – symmetry, nifty ways of organizing space and minimalism give me odd satisfaction of living a simple life, which is all I am about after every hard and hectic day at work. I LOVE reading and writing. I enjoy the way language works and it is my life’s goal to master 5 languages – besides Czech and English and my mediocre Turkish, I want to learn Spanish and Arabic and potentially Russian. I love hiking, being out in nature, discovering new places and meeting new creatures of Earth.
Ironically enough, I have always been the true opposite of an avid TV watcher. The only show I really got crazy about was The Game of Thrones. However, with The Normies I was able to immerse myself in many different shows, miscellaneous genres and explore some bizarre universes of the most creative stories ever told, and I will always be thankful for this opportunity.
P.S.: Tenya Iida is best boy. @ me!
Navi Kaur/CFO/My name is Navi and I'm caffeine dependent proud workaholic nerd. I'm part-time Normie who is primarily responsible for financials and accounting as well as any processes and controls that goes around it. I have a separate full-time job outside of Normies, which keeps me out of town during weekdays and most weekends. So, I react and participate in videos whenever I am in town.
I like to keep myself busy and I am OCD about organization. One of my weirdest quirks is that I love making lists and will organize my thoughts by making list for everything. Two motto I live by is everything happens for a reason and there is always a better way to do something.
My name is Suraj Choudhary and I am the CEO of The Normies LLC. Since I was a boy I have always wanted to entertain and bring people joy because after all, laughter is the best medicine.
I graduated with a BA from the IU School of Informatics with a minor in the Kelly School of Business, focusing strictly in Video Production. I believe the medium of Video provides endless creative possibilities to better people's lives when it comes to leisure, escape, relaxation and learning. Most importantly, I believe in the community aspect of YouTube and Video. I am very proud of the community we have cultivated through The Normies and continue to grow with today.
I will always have lofty aspirations to create my own films some day. What are we without our dreams, right? I’m very happy that my friends and I have developed an outlet in which we can flex our creative muscles.
I love films, games, music, and television. I love dancing, singing (when it’s drunk karaoke) and creating crazy memories with my friends! All time favorite show? If you know me then you know the answer!
I am a pretty empathetic person almost to a fault. I can relate to (and do impressions of) almost anybody. This is why my taste in music is very broad as I listen to whatever genre fits my mood. I can go from NWA to Of Monsters and Men; Odesza to Ariana Grande; Led Zeppelin to The Beatles, within the span of an hour.
I think my biggest pet peeve is when anyone says that a single person in our company does not work their asses off. Most people that aren't well versed in the YouTube world have a very flimsy understanding of just how hard it is to balance running a YouTube channel with your life. Your income isn't necessarily stable and job security is a big fat question mark at best.
All that being said, I enjoy the hell out of what I do! It's not your typical 9-5’s but it is WORK, I assure you. I hope we have had a chance to better your life somehow, or allow you to live out moments of your past again through our eyes. Peace to you all!
Hello, my name is Sydney! I am a Nuke compositor and video editor for The Normies. I am a graduate from The Digital Animation and Visual Effects School at Universal Studios, Orlando. I've hopped from Los Angeles, to Manhattan working on various TV shows, commercials, movies, and short films. The homesickness finally kicked in and I moved back to my home state, Indiana, in 2018 and began working for The Normies shortly after! I am a mother of two fur babies, a White Claw enthusiast, an anime binging, a dinosaur stopping (Fila wearing) basic white girl who loves her iced coffee as much as the next. The most important thing you should know about me is that I am the best ping pong player in the office. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk
