Brandon McMillan’s Early Life and Family Background

Brandon McMillan was born in Trenton, New Jersey in the United States on April 29, 1977. He was raised in Trenton with his family members who were involved in animal training.

As previously mentioned, Brandon was born into a family where their main work is with animals.

Unsurprisingly, he also took up an interest in being an animal trainer and he was then taught the art of animal handling and training by his father and uncle; this served as a base for his career today.

Brandon McMillan began his career at the age of eighteen when he left New Jersey to Los Angeles to join his uncle’s animal training company called ‘Hollywood Animals’. The company trains and supplies animals such as elephants, birds, reptiles, wolves, big cats, and domestic dogs, among others, to be used in Hollywood films.
