Born and raised on the beaches of Southern California, Brandon traded his surfboard for the foggy mornings of Northern California where he lives with his wife and two sons. Brandon’s interest in architecture began at a young age with classroom doodles exploring the ways people view and organize spatial infrastructure. Brandon’s fascination with architecture’s impact on the natural world led him to complete his Bachelor’s at UC Irvine in Environmental Analysis & Design. Following graduation, he entered the professional world managing a variety of business ventures. Brandon returned to school at Arizona State University to complete his Master’s Degree in Architecture and turn his lifelong passion into a full-time career.
