Brandon Herring grew up in Grimes, Iowa and only recently moved to the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. Having always struggled with social anxiety, Brandon was a terribly shy and anxious student in school. Participating in the school play is what broke Brandon out of his shell and gave him a community where he felt like he could be himself. Brandon went on to study Theatre Arts at Simpson College, in Indianola, Iowa and received his Master of Fine Arts in Acting from Western Illinois University. Since then, Brandon has been performing professionally around the Midwest area, as well as teaching theatre at the high-school and college levels. Brandon has a passion for acting, tabletop role-playing games, and working with young students. Brandon is incredibly excited to continue his artistic and educational career with Project Success.
