Kristian fell in love with comedy at quite an early age, and enjoyed entertaining his friends and family and making them laugh.
He was and still is a very friendly person, who had numerous friends throughout his school years – it was in high school that he decided to become a stand-up comedian, and he began performing while he was attending his final year there.
After he matriculated from high school, Kristian enrolled into Florida State University, and graduated in 2002 with a bachelor’s degree in theatre and communications.
Career of a YouTuber and other jobs
Kristian launched his career of a stand-up comedian when he was only 17 years old. He performed in numerous bars and pubs, but his career wasn’t progressing, so he eventually gave up on his dream of becoming a popular stand-up comedian, and completely focused on film.
In 2004, Kristian started working for Silver Pictures in their feature film development section, which was his first venture into the film industry. He was part of the team for three years through 2007, when he decided to give stand-up comedy another shot – it lasted for two years before he went back to film. In May 2009, he found a job at Next Entertainment as an associate producer, and worked on numerous shows, including “The Bachelor” and “High School Reunion”.
Creating his own website is what helped Kristian become popular – he launched Schmoes Know together with his friend Mark Ellis, who is a comedian as well.
They were both working for Current TV at the time, and were asked by their mutual friend, Martini Paratore to do a TV pilot review – that’s when they got the idea of doing their own reviews. Schmoes Know was then launched, and it serves as a place for Kristian and Mark to review movies, while they also put some comedy into them, both being comedians.
Their YouTube channel was launched on 19 October 2008, and it so far counts more than 300,000 people subscribed to it, while it also counts over 115 million views of all their videos combined. The channel is currently approaching its 6th season, and the only videos uploaded onto it are movie reviews.
Kristian and Mark had the idea of launching their website even earlier, but didn’t have the funds necessary to do so. Although Kristian is mostly focused on Schmoes Know, he is also working as a correspondent for Fandango, and is interviewing movie stars at all the popular events such as The Red Carpet, and is running a show “Movie3some” together with his friend Tiffany Smith. Both he and Mark are now contributing to Collider Videos, which has helped their fanbase grow even bigger – since they joined Collider Videos, Kristian has become the director of development, and is hosting several shows including “Jedi Council”.
Kristian and Mark are the first YouTube movie reviewers ever to be certified by the Rotten Tomatoes website.

Miri is a Canadian film reporter, and she was there doing the same thing as he – they were introduced by a mutual friend and instantly fell for one another. They only got a chance to exchange their ‘phone numbers as they were very busy, but managed to talk later and to get to know each other.
Their relationship went on for two years before the couple exchanged their wedding vows, in Florida on 31 October 2010. They have since been together and there are no rumors nor controversies surrounding their relationship – they are parents to a daughter whose name is not known.
