Brandon Seils grew up in the snowy city of Rochester, New York where he attended Brighton public schools through High School. At that time, he worked several odd jobs including a late-night DJ gig on 90.5 FM WBER and a Kitchen & Bath associate at the now-defunct Chase Pitkin. Upon graduation, he moved to Boston where he earned his undergraduate degree at Northeastern University in International Marketing and a minor in French. During that time, he spent a year in Reims, France studying at the Reims Management School and working for Apple Computer Europe. After college, he toiled away his days at Boston.com wearing many hats including Marketing Producer, DigitalMASS & BostonWorks Content Producer, Tech Producer and eventually Ad Operations Manager. After a quick stint in Hoboken, New Jersey, Brandon eventually moved to Silicon Valley in October 2006 to work at Google. He currently resides in balmy San Francisco helping to develop Google’s display advertising business by day and raging to funk & jazz by night.
