Hi, I'm Brandon

Typenerd • Photo-Taker • Coffee Drinker

I’m a detailed-oriented type nerd, that designs with strategy in mind.

Hailing from Boston, MA, design and photography have been my passion for as long as I can remember. High school was when I obtained the basic knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite and how to use it – also, made a lot of local concert flies and brochures for local businesses. In university, I sharpened these skills. While studying advertising, I also was a lead art director in my university AdTeam, which happened to take 1st place in the National Student Advertising Competition in 2017 held in New Orleans, LA.

In 2018, I joined Tillett Collective – a photo studio and family. We are a community of photographers that shoot anything and everything your business may need. We are equipped with the highest quality of studio Profoto lighting, a variety of solid-color backdrops, including a hand-made flower wall, and meeting/lounge area.

Currently, I am the Media Specialist for Methods Machine Tools, a nationwide CNC machine distributor based out of Sudbury, MA. Overseeing design and advertising/marketing needs for all of our nine nation-wide offices.
