Hi I'm Brandon

I grew up in Southern California, I'm a father and husband and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a California native. I'm a husband and father of 5 with one on the way! I love sports but Soccer is my favorite. I was adopted as a baby and come from a diverse family background. I have a BS in information technology but being an entrepreneur and looking for business opportunities is what I do best when it comes to work. I'm a former United States Marine and love this country and last but not least I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

It's simple for me. I've found that living the principles of this church make me a better man, a better citizen, a better Christian and the more I follow these teachings (the teachings of Jesus Christ) the happier I become. As a kid growing up in the melting pot of Los Angeles I had the opportunity of being exposed to so many religions, races, faiths etc. I visited numerous churches, talked to countless pastors, preachers, Buddhists, Islamic Imams, scientists and educators trying to figure out some answers to life, the differences between them all and the unusual animosity towards Mormons in particular. Overtime as I learned to live a Christ centered life through the Mormon church I began to change for the better. I could see Gods hand in my life and the fruit of living these teachings is a greater witness to me than any scientific or doctrinal explanation I've ever heard or read.

How I live my faith

I live my faith one day at at time, one challenge at a time. Life is not always easy and neither is living and walking by faith. It requires a positive attitude, deliberate effort and consistency. It's the daily little things that make a difference so I pray daily individually and as a family, I try and read scriptures daily individually and as a family. I look for opportunities to serve and help others daily even when I'm busy. I listen with my heart and mind to the inspiration of God though the Holy Ghost, I tell my wife and my children I love them and try to show it through actions. I work daily to be a little less selfish and a little more selfless.
