Brandon comes to Formidable having held a variety of engineering roles elsewhere, including time with a fundraising platform called Community Funded, an online learning site Bluprint that was acquired by NBC, and the Python consultancy Lincoln Loop, working with clients like Evite, National Geographic, and Smithsonian.com. At Formidable, Brandon focuses on leading project teams and facilitating strong relationships with our clients. He supports our Denver team as an Engineering Manager, helping to build a sustainable and inclusive culture. Brandon specializes in type-safe API platform development with tools like TypeScript and GraphQL, with reliable code generation to cut down on common boilerplate. He created his first website as a teenager in the early '90s — a guitar tab site for his favorite acoustic rock band, who then visited the site and signed the guestbook. This inspired his lifelong passion for web technology.
