About Brandi

I create surreal, carefully constructed stories that dissect love, morality, oppression, identity crises, alienation and stagnation by catapulting characters into absurd, almost comically juxtaposed worlds where they must use self-examination as a tool for escape and redemption.

Unique traits: I can eat a sandwich right side up or upside down and get a different taste each time.
