Brandon Glass is an American Sign Language interpreter from the DMV though he was born in Heidelberg, Germany! His love for ASL began in high school as that was his second language selection. Loving the language and traveling to Disney World, he then noticed an interpreter providing access to the play that takes place in the center of Magic Kingdom. Upon seeing the language in use and the inclusion it can provide Brandon knew that’s what he wanted to do. After high school, Brandon fell in love with Deaf culture and the community learning more about the Deaf world through his major, Deaf Studies. Since graduating, Brandon has worked as an After School Program Coordinator for the Maryland School for the Deaf, a Vocational Rehab counselor for a Deaf Services Program, VRS interpreting, and an Interpreter in the public school system. Working with youth is anything but new to Brandon as he has paralleled his interpreting career with being a competitive coach in dance, as well as a mentor to young athletes. Fun fact, Brandon also continues to pursue a career as a professional dancer and choreographer! He was recently touring with Marvel Universe Live as a stuntman!
