He earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Communication and Video Production, and a Master’s Degree in Business Management and Leadership.
He was born and raised in Idaho Falls, Idaho, and is a second generation Idaho Falls High School graduate. While he never worked on a potato farm, he certainly loves to eat potato based recipes.
Brandon used to work behind the scenes as a camera operator and video editor for East Idaho News.com (although he did fill in as a reporter in front of the camera on one occasion). He also did an internship as a video editor for Fin Fun Mermaid Tails. When Brandon was about 9 years old he went to a local gathering of Star Wars fans where he discovered people making their own costumes and their own fan films. Realizing that ordinary people like himself could make visual effects on a home computer, he quickly got sucked into the world of video editing and has been making films ever since.
When he is not making videos, Brandon enjoys spending time with his wife and two kids. He also enjoys piano, singing, and laser-tag. He is passionate about story-telling whether that comes through writing stories, making videos, or photography. He was a semi-finalist in the Adobe Design Achievement Awards for his photography.
One of his favorite things about his position as videographer at Arcane Marketing is the chance to work with a variety of individuals to create something new that will be valuable to those he is working with.
He loves rubbing shoulders with his fellow employees and is constantly amazed at their knowledge. When asked about the company culture, Brandon said that Arcane Marketing’s culture allows him to be himself while also enabling and encouraging him to be the best version of himself. The atmosphere is friendly, the job is challenging, and the result is rewarding.
Brandon hopes to one day take the skills he has learned in video production and at Arcane Marketing and pass them on to a new generation as a high school teacher or college professor.
Brandon is an Adobe Certified Professional in Digital Video Using Adobe Premiere Pro and also holds the Aputure Lighting Certification.
His favorite quote is from dear old Winnie the Pooh: “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.“
