I have been trying to reach put for an interview like many other amazing people, but I do feel that I have a compelling story, and want to help out people in torment. This is my outreach for an interview and potentially help Mark on his humanistic ventures.
My name is Brandon VonDell, and I am a Photographer/Writer/Filmmaker currently residing in the Coachella Valley, CA. Since the early years of my life I have experienced intense trauma. When I was 3, I drowned in a pool, died, and was brought back. I remember the entire experience. When I was 5 I was grabbed off of the street and dragged to a car, and I escaped. Then I was raped by a neighborhood “friend” and threatened with my life. I escaped that too all by the age of 6. Starting at 13 years old I was fully addicted to drugs, and began running away from home and riding freight trains and living an extremely violent life, which I continued until I was 23. I was doomed for death or life in prison. I have a lifetime of stories, and am now going to be a year with no alcohol for the very first time on Jan. 30th. I have struggled severely in my addiction, and am now at a point a clairvoyance and peace. I want to help those that are in hellish torment, as well as tell my story in hopes that it will resonate with someone out there who feels alone, misunderstood, and scared. I care for you all, and I hope that Mark and I can work together in the very near future.
