Brandon Norgaard

Founder, Author, and Project Director

Brandon is the creator and founder of The Enlightened Worldview Project. Brandon has always possessed an interest in understanding how things work and appreciated learning about philosophy, religion, history, politics, science, and technology.  Throughout his life, Brandon wanted to better understand why there is so much conflict and injustice in our world and what, if anything, people can do to work toward greater peace.  After obtaining a bachelors degree in computer science from Sacramento State and beginning a career as a software developer, his study of philosophy and social sciences continued.  From 2007 to the present, Brandon has spent many hours writing books and in building this project as an organization.
