Hopeful Storyteller

Photographer / Curator / Podcaster

Branden Harvey likes to focus on the good in the world. So much so, he built a community around empathetic, people-focused storytelling through Instagram and Snapchat. That led him to create a weekly newsletter of stories filled with hope, joy, justice, and love that hold the power to change the world.


His latest venture is Sounds Good, a podcast centered around conversations with hopeful, world-changing people about topics like social justice, mental health, and using your platform for good. His guests have included Scott Harrison of charity: water, Aaron Draplin of Draplin Design Co, Charlie Todd of Improv Everywhere, and many others.


Follow along with Branden’s stories and projects of good on Instagram.

Letterfolk Board


My wife and I ordered this letter board a few months ago when we moved into our new apartment. We wanted a way to keep our decorations fresh. We update it a few times a week with quotes, mantras, and ideas we’re excited about at the moment. This is a quote from my friend Brad Montague, the creator of the Kid President video series (and one of my former podcast guests!).

Charity: Water Jerry Can


This hand-painted jerry can was gifted to me by one of my favorite artists Sean Tulgetske in support of one of my favorite non-profits, charity: water. It’s colorful and fun and reminds me of the power of positive action.

Worn Print  & STiiCKs Magnetic Frame


Judson Collier was one of my first friends when I started visiting Nashville more than 3 years ago. When I moved here we started sharing a studio space at WELD. He’s been releasing a new series of prints every few months and I always pay for them online then just grab them from the shipment in our studio.

Also, STiiCKs make it so easy to switch out artwork as often as I want.

SOMA Pitcher


I’m a huge fan of the ethos of SOMA. Their design is fantastic and I love that they give back with every purchase.

Giving Key


The Giving Keys create good looking and meaningful jewelry that provides jobs and opportunities for people who want to transition out of homelessness. In 2016, I picked out a key with the word CREATE. I was getting ready to create some of the biggest projects in my life (podcast and Goodnewsletter). By intentionally picking my word for the year, I was able to focus on living into it specifically.

My word for 2017 is LEAD. In 2016 I created a number of platforms that matter to me and built a community around them. In 2017 I want to lead my audience well.

AWAY Carry-On


I travel all the time. Last year I flew 48 times domestically (and I didn’t even do the math on international flights). So my suitcase is important to me. I love that my AWAY bag looks good, can handle a beating, and has a built in USB charger for long airport stays.

We’re So Happy You’re Here Print


Becky Simpson is another one of my favorite artists (and another former podcast guest). When my wife and I decided that we wanted our home to be filled with lots of colors and our friends’ artwork, we knew Becky was the perfect fit. We love this print from her.

Apple Watch


I got my Apple Watch Series 2 in December and I’ve become obsessed ever since. I quickly learned that data really motivates me, so I use it to track my fitness, water intake, client hours, locations, productivity, and analytics.

Kindle Paperwhite


My life almost always feels crazy, but I work hard to squeeze a little bit of reading into my day every day— even when I’m traveling. My Kindle has been incredibly helpful. Of course it fits all my books in a tiny device, but it also motivates me to get more reading in by tracking my reading speed and telling me how many minutes I have left in each chapter. Knowing that finishing out a chapter will only take 8 more minutes makes me feel more confident jumping into a book when I have a few spare moments.
