Brandon Vogt is a Catholic writer and speaker who regularly blogs at The Thin Veil. He writes on spirituality, technology, and social-justice, and features regular book reviews and weekly giveaways. He also manages a special blog connected with his new book, The Church and New Media: Blogging Converts, Online Activists, and Bishops Who Tweet at The Church and New Media. The book, a one-of-a-kind resource on new media for the Church, has been endorsed by many of the top ranking Cardinals and bishops in the U.S – including Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York, Cardinal Seán O’Malley of Boston, Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia, Cardinal Francis George, Archbishop of Chicago, and Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington, DC.
In May 2011 the Pontifical Councils for Culture and Social Communications invited Vogt as one of only 10 Americans to dialogue with Vatican officials and international bloggers on social media. He has been interviewed widely on the topic all over the U.S.
Brandon daylights as a mechanical engineer in Casselberry, Florida, where he lives with his wife, Kathleen, and their two children, Isaiah and Teresa.
