Hi I'm Brandon

Father. Husband. News enthusiast, graphic designer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been married to my sweet wife for almost 6 years with a 1 year-old son. I like to play tennis and golf. I also enjoy reading the news and staying informed about the things happening in the world. I like going camping, hiking, and seeing the beauty of God's creations. I love being with family and friends whenever I have the chance. I believe that making memories with them and helping each other grow closer to God is what life is about. It makes life more meaningful and enjoyable when you have healthy relationships with them. There is a natural sense of joy that I feel when I help or serve others in need. For a living, I am a full time graphic designer with experience in multiple industries and with different types of design work. I like to make things look better than what already is there. I feel the need to create and to create something beautiful or fun to look at. It's that need is what drives me. That is a unique talent that the Lord has given me and I enjoy using it to bless the lives of others with it. I tend to be pretty modest and humble about my strengths and accomplishments because I know that I wouldn't have them if it weren't for the Lord helping me. I think humility is key to learning and keeping yourself grounded in the gospel. Besides that, I also love being with my wife and having fun with her. She is my best friend. I look forward spending this life and eternity with her.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the testimony I gained of my Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ and my loving Heavenly Father while on my mission after all that I suffered from during my teenager years. I also observed miracles in the lives of others of how they came to Christ through personal struggles of their own. That showed me how God gives blessings to those who obey his word and strive to become like him through faith, repentance and the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I can't imagine my life not knowing the plan that he has for me as I have come to know it through personal life experiences and by living the teachings of Jesus Christ. He gives me peace, joy and happiness that lasts and that I know I can't find anywhere else. This is who I am and how I choose to live. And I love it!

How I live my faith

Over the many years I have been a member, I have been able to serve many different roles. All with equal value and remarkable blessings and lessons attached with them. I have taught young children in a classroom setting, men of my own age and those older than I am about principles and doctrines of the gospel. I have helped the leaders of my congregation or "ward" be more organized and technologically equipped. I have done numerous art and design projects. I have helped others find printed/audio/ and visual materials to use for their specific jobs in the church. I have been in charge of creating events for the men in the congregation so they can build friendships and feel unified as a group. But most importantly, no matter where I am, I always feel the need to teach others the gospel and help them with any problems they may have, whether it be temporal or spiritual.
