Hi I'm Brandon

I'm a husband, father of four, computer geek, and entrepreneur. And I'm a Mormon

About Me

I met my wife while we were both working at Walt Disney World while going to college. We now have four children under 7 years old and live in Athens, GA. I'm a computer geek and have worked as a Computer repair guy, Linux System Administrator and Website Programmer. I'm now self-employed running several websites and E-Commerce projects. I enjoy running and have completed 2 marathons and 6 half marathons, as well as numerous other shorter races.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up attending the Mormon church regularly with my family. Through high school and college I continued attending church regularly, although reluctantly at times. I served as a full-time missionary for two years around Lexington Kentucky and Southern Indiana. I can't point to a specific date or event when I became 'converted', but it has been a gradual process of study, daily experiences, and trying to do what is right. I've made plenty of mistakes but have come to know that Christ is my Savior through having faith in His atonement, repenting, and trying to become better. I love the beautiful elegance of the Gospel. Its principles can be extremely simple and apply on many levels and in many ways.

How I live my faith

The church has plenty of opportunities to serve. I was recently in charge of installing wireless networks in many church buildings in Northeast Georgia. I enjoyed that position, as it is the only one that I've ever had where I knew what I was doing! I've recently been assigned to a leadership position in our local congregation. That definitely is providing opportunities for me to get out of my comfort zone. I've also served as a cub-scout leader, Sunday-School teacher, and various other positions. Most importantly, I work every day with my wife to help teach our four children how to make good decisions, to develop their talents, and to live the gospel.
