Brenden M. Roland

Greetings. I'm Brenden. I'm a computer geek that enjoys writing creative nonfiction works, which are usually based on my own life.

I'm working on a video game or two, but anything major is currently more than a year out. I do plan to have a smaller game out by the end of 2021 though.

In the meantime, if you wish to contact me, then send me an email at RolandBrenden@gmail.com. You can also find me on Twitter, I don't post much, but I may talk to you if you @ or DM me.

I'm also open to commissions on a case-by-case basis for some programs, my focuses are in Java & SQL, but I have knowledge of JavaScript, HTML, CSS, Python, PHP, & C++ as of now.

For public things, I'll mostly be making Minecraft plugins and some apps for Android. I know it's pretty barren here right now, but don't worry, more fun things coming soon.
