Brandon was born and raised in Bloomington, Illinois and went to Illinois State University for a degree in TV Production.

At Illinois State, he worked as a news photographer, graphic maker, and director for their TV-10 newscasts. It was this experience that gave him an appreciation for local news. He also enjoys writing in his spare time.

Besides telling stories with a camera or with a pen, Brandon is an avid gamer and spends most of his time playing story heavy games and constantly refining his outlook on what it means to tell a great story.

For Brandon, any story that is intriguing, especially those softer features, will get his whole attention.
