Brandon is from Apple Valley, Minnesota. Just for perspective, Apple Valley is about 20 miles south of the Twin Cities and 10 miles from the Mall of America. Brandon is studying Marketing at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He will be a junior in the fall and hopes to graduate in spring of 2017. After graduation, Brandon’s dream is to work at a marketing or advertising firm in Chicago. As a BCycle intern, Brandon has come to realize how important both teamwork and having fun are in the workplace, and appreciates the freedom to be creative that often comes along with working at a smaller company.
Upon thinking about one of his favorite BCycle memories, Brandon said: “My favorite memory with riding BCycles was the first time I was able to get my roommate to try out a BCycle. We took a couple bikes from the Union South station and headed to the Terrace. It was a beautiful day at the lake…we even worked on our tans a little. My roommate has been an avid BCycler ever since!"
