About Me.

Who I am, what I love, and my social networks, connect with me.

Brandyn Burbank

Who are you?

I’m an engineer, a maker of things, a creator of magic, an artist and a dreamer. Also, a delightfully confused college student with a hearty distain for ramen noodles.

Why yd.Burbank?

I’ve gone through a bazillion iterations of this online portfolio with an equally wide variety of designs and personal brandings. I’ve always hated the way my initials looked in any username or logo I designed. One day while trying to come up with a catchy Instagram name I came up with yd.Burbank pulling what I thought were the most interesting typographical characters from my full name and appending my last name with a period. It stuck, and has been my ‘callsign’ online ever since.

How long have you been doing this?

Depends on what ‘this’ is. Drawing has been an on and off side hobby in my life for a long time. As soon as I was able to use a mouse my grandma made sure I was in front of a computer, drawing. I got my hands on 3DS Max and Macromedia Flash (now Adobe Animate) when I was really young too. I taught myself to code when I was ten. And, I’ve been designing websites for well over a decade. I started studying electronics engineering my junior year of high school, and shied away from art for a while because I somehow got the idea that engineers couldn’t be good at art. Now I’m back to prove that wrong.

Want to know more about me? (Aren’t you nosy) Here’s a bit done on me, from a previous job’s website.

Brandyn has been developing for the web for over ten years. He has helped build online solutions for a wide range of clients from small local businesses to large educational institutions. He spent several years working as a Master Developer at Brigham Young University – Idaho. From there he moved to Pathway: In Partnership with BYU-Idaho (now BYU–Pathway Worldwide) where he led development on Pathway’s first public website.

Brandyn’s skills and love for the web have earned him several accolades including first place at the SkillsUSA technical competition in Washington State, after which he was invited to compete at the National Skills and Leadership Conference in Kansas City, MO where he and his team placed in the top 15 of nationwide competitors in Web Design.

Brandyn grew up on an island off the west coast of Canada, and loves both the beach and the mountains. He fluently speaks several languages including English, French, and Khmer.

That’s all folks!
