About Me

Hi, My name is Brandon Gingerich. I grew up in a military family and traveled a lot due to my father being stationed in different states. I have lived in New Jersey, Guam, California (San Diego), Mississippi, Michigan, Florida, and Texas. We were stationed the longest in California, and that is where I started schooling. We eventually had to move to Mississippi, but due to my parents separating we had to move to Michigan. This is where most of our family was because both of my parents grew up here. At this time I had an older brother (Alex) and a sister that was on the way (Charisma). We lived with our mom since our father was still traveling. My brother and I had a hard time trying to cope with everything and looked to each other for comfort and friendship. Since a young age we played video games with each other. I felt like this was the way we were able to cope with everything that was happening. The games made us happy and sent us into a world that was full of mystery and imagination, I think that they were able to help us escape and choose what we wanted to do no matter what kind of game it was.

Growing up and going through school I had no idea what I wanted to do when I got older. I kept trying to think so hard and I didn't have a lot of pushers in my family to figure out my life so I first started off in Mid-Michigan Community College. As I got to thinking about my past and what I've been doing with my life I realized how much video games have made an impact on my life. I thought to myself "I want to keep sharing this feeling", so I am choosing to create games and spread the love that I have for the games that helped my brother and I through life. I finished a transfer degree from Mid, and went to Ferris State University. I have been at FSU since 2019 studying Digital Animation and Game Design. Hoping to finish this year (2023). I want to create worlds people can get lost in and enjoy the time they have while playing.

I am interested in a lot of games, but lately I've been playing A LOT of Minecraft. I love this kind of adventure where I can choose whatever I want to do and bend the world to my liking. I play on my Xbox Series X mostly. I have a gaming laptop that I do all my work on but I really want to get a PC and I just haven't had the chance to go out and get one. Anyways, have you seen the new Minecraft they are coming out with!? It's called Minecraft Legends. It actually looks pretty cool and I can't wait for it to come out so I play it. It said Spring of 2023 so hopefully sometime soon!
