About

I'm Brandon and I live in Minneapolis, MN. You'll typically find me exploring the intersection of design, geography, and sports. In other words, I like flags and maps.

During the weekday, I'm the Director of Product Management for PRX, working on PRX Dovetail and the website for The World from PRX.

I have written for PRI.org and City Pages (RIP). Follow me on Twitter.
