Brandon Kong

Bachelor of Arts, Digital Design

From Bridgewater, New Jersey, I grew up in a family of five as a triplet. I didn’t get into 3D stuff until I was around 13 years old when I found a modding community for the game, Counter-Strike: Source. All of these artists were creating custom models and animations for the video game. In high school I also took a class that introduced me to the free program Blender, so I fairly knew what I wanted to do early on. I’m also on the NJIT Track and Field team in the pole vault. I got the school record this past season with 15’ 5” and also placed third in the America East Conference Championships.
