Hi, I’m Branden. I’m the Senior Manager of Public Policy and Government Relations and joined the team in November 2019. I bring to my role dual skills as a singer and actor, and almost a decade of experience in political campaigning. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in voice from UMKC Conservatory and am honored to serve the arts community in the region I love so much.

I have served on a number of area boards, including the KC Human Rights Campaign, Kansas City Center for Inclusion, AdHoc Group Against Crime, and the Midwest Innocence Project. As a gay man, I’m committed to leveling the playing field for all LGBT+ Americans. I was born and raised in Southwest Missouri and am a small-town boy at heart.
