Raised in the south, Brandon grew up next door to a dairy farm and was often left unattended with the livestock, which led to some horrible repressed event and an unexplainable phobia of cows. After living out his childhood in Georgia, he studied Theatre at Davidson College, where the moo’s couldn’t reach him. After earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Theatre, he made the long trek to New York City to establish the Smalls family dynasty in the north. His hobbies in the city include writing, running, wine-tasting, and seeking revenge in the form of eating rare steaks.
