Brandon Dcruz is a

My name is Brandon Dcruz and I am a second-year undergraduate at The School of Individualized Studies at RIT. I do all sorts of things including creating music as Altona Meadows, web development, writing poetry and prose, and repeatedly deleting Tinder. I am 19 and creating my own degree out of music, film, writing, video game design, and software engineering. I am one of the Literary Team Leads for Signatures, the award-winning Literary and Arts Magazine at RIT, and I've got a few pieces published there too. I am the lead drummer for the RIT Jazz Ensemble and I compose musical scores for student films projects. You can find me at coffee shops, open mics, or record stores.
