  • Brandon beta tested the original Mortal Kombat (it was on several floppy disks and had no sound), Starcraft II, Everquest, and Overwatch.
  • He has a powered paraglider engine and parachute in his garage.
  • When he isn't writing, Brandon doubles as a professional photographer and enjoys getting the latest and greatest lenses, cameras, and devices (with a special love for Canon).


Brandon has been writing professionally since 2009, having started as a photojournalist for a local lifestyle magazine. From there, Brandon wrote most of the online catalog and many articles for SuperHeroStuff over the course of seven years, which means that Brandon can point out the differences between Batmobiles and iterations of the Iron Man suit. Before joining SlashGear, Brandon wrote for Looper, a sibling site that covers television and movies. Brandon is also an avid video gamer, and has the corresponding computer hardware to make sure that the newest games are played to their maximum potential.


Brandon studied at both Reading Area Community College and Kutztown University on subjects such as creative writing, journalism, psychology, and literature.
