Hi, I’m Brandon.
I’m a Digital Media Producer living in Toronto, Ontario. I graduated from the University of Toronto in 2012 with a Honors Bachelors of Arts degree and double majors in English and Film Studies. Since then I’ve been writing, producing visual media, taking photos and interacting with the world via social media.
I enjoy reading, eating delicious meals and watching great films.
Of course, combinations of all three are always welcome.
