Brandon Gomes, best known for his role as a cast member in MTV's hit series docudrama, Siesta Key, is a talented artist, actor, model, and entrepreneur who started his career at the early age of sixteen years old. He participated in his first photoshoot at the suggestion of a dear family friend, ultimately leading to multiple messages via Facebook from local agents looking to hire him as a talent because of his impressive appearance and naturally stunning features. Although he got his start at an early age, he continues striving for greatness in the entertainment industry.
Humble Beginnings & Blessings
Born and raised in Florida, Gomes considers himself a genuine Florida boy, from his personality to his style, interests, and demeanor. Although Florida is home to Gomes, his family is straight off the boat from Cape Verde, 8 small islands off the left coast of Africa, A country full of such distinctive culture. With his dad being born in Africa and spending a lot of time around his grandmother, he fell in love with his African roots because of the rich history and culture. In addition, he's a family-oriented man who looks forward to spending time with loved ones when he isn't busy taking steps to further his career.
Along with his music and entertainment industry talents, Brandon Gomes is a sports enthusiast who played football all through high school, when he found his way into the entertainment industry. It wasn't always easy for Gomes. He worked for free and put himself into the field by networking with others, which ultimately helped him land gigs for multiple modeling campaigns. His determination, effort, and endless networking helped him land incredible gigs. As a result, he's had his image proudly displayed on billboard advertisements and local newspapers. He's also modeled for several labels and has had his images included in circular advertisements.
Gomes has a passion for music and has written his own songs since "Poetry Month" back in middle school. He made his first official song at the age of nineteen while living in New York. Influenced by some of his favorite artists, such as Wiz Khalifa and Outkast, he continued to create fantastic music with a genuine meaning behind it and now works with multiple Taylor Gang artists under Wiz Khalifa's label. In addition, he regularly travels for shows and attends various meet and greets every month. He looks forward to meeting his supporters while traveling to different cities and states.
Brandon Gomes started living in New York when he was only seventeen years old, and he stayed there for three years until he turned twenty. During his time in New York, he pursued modeling, music, and acting while learning more about life than he ever expected. Gomes experienced a complete culture shock as a Florida boy living in New York by himself. The vibrant city life was far different from the place he called home. During this time, he wasn't attending college and didn't have a plan B in motion. Instead, Gomes had the passion and drive to follow his dreams and make it in the entertainment industry, no matter how much of a challenge that would turn out to be. He knew what he wanted in life and was determined to make that happen.
After spending three years in New York, Gomes moved back to Florida because he could no longer afford the higher cost of living in the city. The move from New York back to Florida came at the right time. Shortly after making a move back home, Gomes started filming for the docuseries Siesta Key in 2016.
He continues to film as a cast member for the series that recently debuted its 4th season in May 2021. Gomes initially landed the gig as a cast member for the show because of his effort into networking. He has gained a positive reputation for being easy to work with because of his laid-back personality, which also helped him get selected as a cast member.
Although he's proud of his accomplishments thus far, Gomes knows that Siesta Key isn't the end of the road. As far as his career goes, he takes pride in building a personal brand for himself. He continues to make connections to help develop the platform and brand he's working on for himself.
