I’m Brandon Ferdig, creator of human interest stories and commentary that brings to focus that which we ordinarily miss–that which was off in the periphery. Much of my work has been inspired by my time in foreign countries–mainly, East Africa, East Asia, and Latin America.
My pieces have been featured in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Minnesota Public Radio, and the St. Paul Pioneer Press. See my portfolio page for examples. I post regularly to this website, Facebook, and Instagram.
Perhaps the largest area of my work now resides on my YouTube channel, featuring my video-interviews, video-stories, and travel clips.
I am the author of Life Learned Abroad: Lessons on Humanity from China published January 2014. I also speak and present at schools, libraries, conference rooms, and any other place an audience might gather to listen to my experiences, observations, and lessons I bring back from the road.
Learning and sharing these lessons–about other cultures, about humanity in general, about how society can best progress–are ultimately why I do what I do.
These days, I’m finishing stories from two recent travels through Cuba and through the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. and Canada. And I’m always on the lookout for new opportunities to capture stories, interview, speak, and travel.
