Brandon Dcruz is a

My name is Brandon Dcruz and I am a third-year undergraduate at The School of Individualized Studies at RIT. I do all sorts of things including performing music as Altona Meadows, drumming for Cigs Inside and the RIT Jazz Ensemble, pushing broken GitHub code, writing poetry and prose, and swiping on Tinder. Right now I'm 20 years old and creating my own degree for Creative Storytelling out of music, film, writing, video game design, and software engineering courses. I'm the president of the RIT Jam Club, where I dance, play, and lead others to make cool music. I'm a previous Literary Team Lead for Signatures, the award-winning Literary and Arts Magazine at RIT (I've got a few pieces published there too). I compose musical scores for student films projects and get featured at local film festivals. I gave a TEDx talk on my depression and personal struggle to grow. I used to run a small record label called The Reading Room too. You can find me at coffee shops, open mics, or record stores. Hmu to make cool things :)
