Since 2011, I've been involved in the writing community of Lexington, Kentucky. After earning my Bachelor of Arts in English and Linguistics, I started blogging and exploring the world of self-publishing.

In 2012, I published a satirical novella through CreateSpace and Kindle Direct Publishing.

In 2013, I began blogging for Accents Publishing, an award-winning poetry press recognized throughout the United States as well as Bulgaria. Accents started the Lexington Poetry Month Writing Challenge, which is an online celebration of poetry during June. In order to administer the Writing Challenge, I learned PHP, MySQL, and the LAMP stack server management system.

I also started working as an academic tutor for college athletes. I began tutoring students in essays, but over my three years as a professional tutor, I taught linguistics, information sciences, journalism, and communications. I also began teaching adult blogging courses at a local nonprofit.

Between 2013 and 2014, I joined a group of grass-roots artists and entrepreneurs who created Flashpoint Magazine. While volunteering there, I wrote articles, designed layout, and eventually became Editor-in-Chief before the magazine could no longer sustain itself.

I also founded Maze Rats, a web publication dedicated to video game communities and education. In 2016, I started printing The Backlog, a monthly zine that structures an essay around a single video game.

Currently, Bronson is working as a Development Associate for a nonprofit dedicated to education and the literary arts. He is editing a novel that combines his love of video games with a satirical look at corporatism and gender identity. He hopes to be finished in early 2017, but he has also written articles for various local and national publications.
