Marketer. Events Geek. Aspiring Nerd.
Hello, my name is Brandon.
Originally from various parts of Chicago, I spent most of my formative years in Charlotte, North Carolina. I received a BA in American Studies and minors in both Dramaturgy and Creative Writing from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. While in school, I spent a semester studying abroad at King’s College London. It was there that I truly fell in love with big, polyglot cities. In 2015 I moved to New York City and am still very much in the honeymoon phase. I like running, yoga, reading, journaling, doodling, cooking, and spending time with my imaginary Golden Labrador, Honcho.

From WordPress site design to sound link structure and strong, organic content–I know how to play by Google’s rules in order to get your site ranking where you want it to. (The top).
Social Media Management
Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Vimeo, Pinterest, Youtube, Vimeo, and more–I know the best ways to engage with social media communities and help you build the online presence that you deserve. (A really freaking good one).
In the world of online branding, content is king. If you want to attract viewers to your site, spread the word on your snazzy organization, or start ranking near the top of Google’s search results pages, you need strong organic content that is engaging and trending. (I can do that).
So you have great content, huh? Part of getting the most out of what you have is finding new ways to publish it. Fortunately for you, I’m a regular Hugh Glass (AKA Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant) when it comes to finding new outlets for you to publish your content (LinkedIn, Inc., Venturebeat, etc.) and new ways to do so (infographics, presentations, etc.)
(Sometimes I get hungry).
My first formal experience with improv comedy was in eighth grade drama class. I did a scene where I was Godzilla. Since then, I’ve studied with iO Chicago, Second City Chicago, DSI and more. I’ve performed across the country and the world. Currently, I take classes with the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater and perform with several independent groups around the city.
