ELTON CASTEE

Founder - CEO

Getting his social media start in 2013 from the app Vine (where his following surpassed 1.4 Million followers), Elton Castee has since gone one to find success in various manners  such as his Facebook comedy sketches, hosting two never aired TV shows, becoming a touring stand-up comedian, 10x Guinness World Record title holder, and his most well known work with the now Shorty Award Nominated Youtube channel, TFIL.   With his current followers surpassing 7 Million and videos surpassing more than 1 Billion views, across various platforms, Elton has been able to constantly find his foothold throughout the constantly changing landscape of the internet.  

During his 2.5 years of traveling the world for TFIL, Elton has come across many situations and people that have altered his point of view of the world; all of which can be evidently seen through his personal donations of over $125,000 to various charities and his live-stream fundraisers that have raised just over $188,000 thus far.  The positive impact seen by TFIL on its audience and the Youtube platform has driven his decision to change the channel to a fully non-profit 501(c)3, For Sparta Organization.
 

MIKE RIVKEES

Videographer - Editor

Mike Rivkees is a self taught filmmaker from New England. After traveling the world directing, shooting, and editing commercials, he felt that he wanted to do more with his life than climb the corporate ladder. When Elton Castee (long time friend from high school) approached him about joining TFIL full time, he knew that this was a leap worth taking. He quit his job, booked a one way ticket to California, and has dedicated his life to helping others.
