Brandon's specialties include paying close attention to syntax and grammar in writing - he can help trim down superfluous writing to make writing stronger and more succinct.
In his free time, Brandon loves biking, playing video games, watching movies and spending time with his cat.
With his background as an educator, this is definitely a field he can speak to. He spent two years as a high school teacher in the classroom and can work in creating written content that applies to what teachers go through, any resources needed for teachers or any tips or advice when it comes to the profession.
With experience as an office manager, he knows what clients in an office space need or look for in terms of quality of living. He's event-planned for an office of 100+ employees and can speak to the morale and conditions of working in an office.
As an avid gamer, he is very familiar with the landscape in terms of current releases, trends in gaming, what's hot and upcoming and what audiences are most looking forward to. It's something he can intelligently and knowledgeably write about for a client.
Brandon has written for numerous publications, articles ranging from entertainment news pieces to interviews with high-level talent and, most recently, festival programmers. He has previously written for The Hollywood Reporter, Backstage, Billboard, Hypable, IndieWire, and currently writes for A.V. Club. Experience conducting interviews for articles is something he excels in, with the ability to transcribe interviews and trim them down into Q&A format or weaved into a feature article or personality profile. He has experience editing his own work and submitting timely news articles, hitting rigid deadlines without issue.
As the former director of sales and marketing for an independent film distribution company, he was in charge of creating advertisements on social media for our upcoming home video releases on VOD. That required him to research audiences and create specific demographics for our releases to reach the maximum number of viewers. He created social media copy and implemented a schedule of social media marketing posts over the release window of all of our pictures. This talent would translate to writing copy for any product in need of pushing/selling.
