Associated Content Contributor Brandon Miller recently agreed to an interview with me. He joined AC in August of 2009 and is rapidly excelling on the site. In his AC content library, you’ll find topics such as online gaming, travel, parenting, education, business, and more. My personal favorite piece by Brandon is “How to Understand and Satisfy Your Customers on Restaurant City for Facebook.” I chose this piece because because it touches both on his business side and gaming side and some of the tips could help an actual restaurant worker or owner, not just virtual ones. Read on to find out more about Brandon Miller and don’t forget to check out his work after the interview.
