A Little About Brian Watkins…

I’ve been a gamer since age 7, starting with Super Mario Bros. and Dragon Warrior (Dragon Quest), which ended up shaping my imagination more than I could’ve known. My first tattoo was even of a dragon out of respect for roleplaying games and how I spent much of my childhood with my best friend.

Two of my greatest hobbies are music and speaker equipment, something I learned from my father early on and have dabbled with ever since.

Professional Credentials:

I have a Bachelor’s degree in English, and also studied philosophy and psychology. I’ve pursued ongoing learning about copywriting, web design, and SEO professionally since 2006.

Notable Continuing Education:

  • Nyght Falcon Photography training
  • Knowledge Business Blueprint Course (Tony Robbins)
  • The SEO Playbook Advanced SEO Course (Robbie Richards)
