Hi, my name is Brandon Morrison, and I’m a web designer living in Washington D.C. with my wife and two cats. I grew up in Tennessee and still claim it as my home turf. Depending on the situation, I can claim any section of the state, although I do have a special place in my heart for Memphis.
I went to school at Middle Tennessee State University and graduated with a degree in Media Design (think journalism + graphic design - historical context). I spent most of my college career chasing after girls who would have nothing to do with me and being king nerd at Sidelines, the student newspaper at MTSU. I’d consider most of the people I hung out with there family, even though I don’t reach out enough.
After graduating from MTSU, I worked for two years in Memphis, Tennessee at the Commercial Appeal. While I was there, I spent time with a bunch of interesting characters and developed an unhealthy obsession with Craig Brewer and Christina Ricci. I still don’t understand the town’s obsession with Elvis, but I do love me some BBQ nachos.
My then-fianceé and I moved to Indiana in the winter of 2008 so that she could study geology at the University of Notre Dame. Despite being here longer than I lived in Memphis, I’ve never really felt comfortable there.
Now, I’m here in Washington DC, and it’s pretty fantastic.
