Social Media Manger, Frankie Spano
Behind Frankie Spano's Social Media Engagement
Brandon Schatt is a graduate of the University of Maryland College Park with a passion for social media and music. He first met Frankie Spano when they joined Faux Paz, an award-winning collegiate a cappella group, in 2012. The two formed a close bond and went on to help lead the group to the 2015 ICCA Finals as the Mid-Atlantic Regional Champions. During this time, Brandon also spent a year managing all Faux Paz social media platforms, working to expand their fan-base beyond the UMD community. He has been keeping up with the latest media trends ever since creating his first Myspace with the ideal angst-filled soundtrack and carefully selected top 8. Since then, he's moved on to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and beyond. Brandon is an a cappella nerd at heart, but also enjoys listening to and performing a wide variety of musical genres. Brandon is excited to be teaming up with Frankie once again as she prepares to write, record and release original music with Headstock Records.
