Brief Bio

Brandon is a games writer and actor who lives in Los Angeles, California. When he's not gaming, you can catch him in certain film and television projects, occasionally on the stage in New York, and as the host of his own videogames interview show, State of Play.

A life-long gamer, his passion was first realized when his father jokingly claimed to have broken their new Atari 5200 after a strenuous game of Pac-Man. Since then, he's fallen in love with the medium time and time again.

Fascinated by the new ways in which electronic entertainment elicits emotion, Brandon is constantly playing and pondering the videogame.

Oh yeah, and he did in fact finish Battletoads after thirteen years of trying.
