Brandon was born in Fort Huachuca, Arizona, just after the end of his parents’ first Army assignment in Germany. Being in a military family, he moved around a little but did most of his growing up in Texas – except for three excellent years in Wales during his time in middle-school. From an early age, he fostered a love of movies and technology, and aspired to a career in the CG animation industry. He played football and soccer in high school, and went on to college at Texas A&M as a third-generation Aggie. After receiving his bachelor’s in computer science in 2010, he continued his studies at the graduate level in the Texas A&M Visualization Laboratory. He recently finished his thesis and began working as an assistant technical director at Walt Disney Animation Studios in Burbank, California.
