Miles Zajaczkowski Beckett is the Co-Founder and CEO of EQAL, as well as one of the four original Creators of lonelygirl15.

Miles received a B.A. in Neuroscience from UC Berkeley, and while at the school, he spent a year (1998-1999) working as the design editor and writer at the Heuristic Squelch [1], "UC Berkeley's only intentionally funny publication." He went on to earn an M.D. from UC San Diego and was working at a Plastic Surgery Internship from Loma Linda University Medical Center when he decided to leave.

After considering work as a consultant to transition out of medicine, Beckett instead decided to produce internet videos. He created a video podcasting company called SHOUTBOY, which produced the internet mini-series "West Wingers," spoofing White House press conferences. He was also the writer, director, and producer of "Star Wards," a medical spoof comedy.

The idea of creating the Lonelygirl15 saga was Beckett's. Beckett spent a lot of time on YouTube and noticed that the most popular original content was video bloggers. Beckett imagined creating a story around a video blogger where people would be uncertain about whether he/she was real or fake. He met Mesh Flinders at a karaoke-bar birthday party in April 2006. Flinders had been working on a character, a shy but precocious home schooled teenage girl, who would eventually become Bree. When the two met, they decided to collaborate on the project together. Flinders has since credited Miles as the driving force behind the success of Lonelygirl15.

Miles says that he's inspired by creativity, the passion of Lonelygirl15 fans, people who continue to fight against great adversity, and closing plot holes. If he were not running EQAL, he says he would like to be a professional surfer. Miles has a love for the ocean, and threatens to sail around the world some day, but secretly figures it might be "better in theory."
