If you happen to find Brandon without a camera in hand, he may be on the golf course, at the gym, or spending time with his family.
Samantha Sullivan Q2 - Samantha joined the Q2 family in August 2016. She was born and raised in Seattle and graduated from Chapman University in 2015. While in school, Sami was an active member in the university’s news program where she was the first ever female sports director. She is an unwavering, unrelenting Seattle sports fan, something instilled in her at a young age (actually moments before birth. Ask her. It’s a good story). Her love for sports is what originally got her interested in journalism. She has since traded sports for news, but you can still catch her, camera in hand, at many of the local high school football games. She loves to spend time with family, friends and her two (giant) puppies. She’s a foodie who loves to cook and travel as much as possible.
