Unless you know Brandon well, you might not realize he is a musician and songwriter. He’s been writing and playing since the age of 15, but has always worked on his craft as a hobby.

Brandon often wonders, “what if I had gone all in as a musician when I was 18 years old? I’d probably be on a much different path in my life, whether good or bad. Ultimately, we follow our hearts and although I love music I was never pulled to pursue it full-time. But, we can dream can’t we?”
