077: Optimizing the Human Experience with Brandon Reese

Dec 31, 2018

I you were to look up free- spirited in the dictionary you would see a picture of Brandon Reese. Brandon believes he is on a never ending quest for peak optimization of the human experience.

He is a former collegiate and professional basketball player, who finds comforts and confusion in science, space, fitness, humans, and travel.

He is also a co-host of the On The Bus Podcast, which serves as a medium to interview, converse, and share stories with other young adults living out their dreams. They find people who have unique career paths, success, and filled with insight, to sit down and share conversations. They believe that collaboration and relationships are the drivers for innovation and happiness and that open sources and shared spaces allow for mutually beneficial relationships and in turn expedite growth.
