About

Software Engineer, Hiker, Photographer
Picture of Brandon Bruno.

I am a Microsoft .NET, Sitecore, and JavaScript developer working just outside Atlanta, GA.

Besides web and software development, I enjoy creative writing, photography, hiking, and a good bourbon.

In 2018 I joined the Sitecore community as a technology MVP, and I always look forward to my next learning opportunity. As a software developer, I believe that simplicity is the root of quality.

I have written and published a few web apps and aim to share my tools, experience, and knowledge as a proficient .NET and Sitecore developer.
