“Professor” Brandon Postman is a multi-instrumentalist and autodidact, most often credited as a singer, guitarist, and bassist. He hails from Chardon, Ohio. He polished his craft as a musician by busking on street corners, an act he took across the country in Summer 2018.
Postman fronts The Lab Techs. With bassist Ryan Laubenthal and djembe drummer Clayton Harrison, they play danceable pop-rock songs. Their first album, Beakers, was recorded and produced by Ryan and Brandon in the kitchen at Ryan’s house, on a Tascam Portastudio 488 and other analog equipment. It was designed and packaged by Postman.
When he isn’t playing music, Postman loves to read. Very often, you’ll find him exploring the stacks at his local library. A few of his favorite books to recommend are:
- Contact by Carl Sagan
- The Gods Themselves and The Complete Stories by Isaac Asimov
- Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret by Judy Blume
- How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
- Good To Great by Jim Collins

The Professor is a proud Pokémon Master. He finished his Generation 6 Living Dex by catching all 721 Pokémon then available. His favorite Pokémon is #251 Celebi, the time-travelling guardian of the forest. Challenge him to a battle, or offer him a trade.
As a child, Postman became a fan of auto racing. In his teens, he became a go kart racer. Now, in his adulthood, he has become the live play-by-play announcer and scorekeeper at his home track, Thompson Kart Raceway. He follows autosport closely, particularly the NASCAR Cup Series and FIA Formula E.
He is a fan of his hometown Cleveland Indians. His favorite player on the team is outfielder and base-stealing phenom Bradley Zimmer.
