Early life and education
Born on October 10 in Seattle, Washington, USA, Bronson spent a significant part of his childhood in Sinaloa, Mexico, raised by his grandmother. From a young age, he developed an interest in landscape photography, a passion that has taken him to 47 countries. At 19, Bronson returned to the United States. After studying in Santa Monica, California, and briefly in Cape Town, South Africa, he started studying at the University of California, Berkeley.
Bronson made a notable appearance in the music video for Iggy Azalea’s "Fancy" (2014), featuring Charlie XCX, where he played "the purple shirt guy". The video received multiple MTV Video Music Award nominations and has been viewed more than 1 billion times on YouTube as of 2023.
In 2012, Bronson began his media career as a location scout, collaborating on projects for high-profile individuals, including Oscar-nominated directors such as Bastien Dubois. He secured first place in the 10th Annual Global Citizenship Research Symposium (2019) for his artistic photography.
His screen debut came with "+380" (2022), a Ukrainian short film that premiered during the Berlinale – Berlin International Film Festival. In addition to playing the lead role, Bronson also co-directed the film and scouted locations. Director Andrew Opryshko's treatment of Bronson's character was likened to the approaches of Oscar-winning directors Jane Campion and Guillermo del Toro. In this role, he was able to express his artistic talents in a simple yet expressive manner.
Parallel to his acting career, Bronson has also made a name in music. He has released several songs, accruing a substantial European fanbase and impressive streaming numbers on platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and others.
