Hi I'm Brandon

I enjoy the outdoors. I love composing music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up a short drive from Seattle, Washington. I love biking, hiking, kayaking, and pretty much anything else outdoors. My family enjoys spending time together and likes to go boating on the lakes near my house. I am a student at Brigham Young University (BYU) provo, and I just finished my first year. In high school, I competed in Trampoline as my sport and I play the piano. I love to compose music and my dream job would be as a composer for movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because it is the only way for true, never-ending happiness. This happiness is a gratitude for life. It comes with having faith that there is a Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ that know us and love us unconditionally. It comes with a hope, not that we can get past a life of misery to better things, but that we can consecrate our lives and that we can have joy in this life. It is a hope that I can become more like Heavenly Father. I know that through a life of charity, not merely having a life of giving but instead giving my life for others, I can have the perspective and peace to truly be happy, no matter what obstacles step into my path. This gospel is a simple gospel. It is having faith and accessing the Atonement through repentance, so that I may become who Heavenly Father knows I can be. Each of us have a divine potential. And I know that through this magnificent gospel, we can achieve such potential.

How I live my faith

This last year at BYU, I was able to participate as a teacher of the doctrine of the mormon church to other members of the church each sunday. I would prepare lessons and strive to make them interesting and enjoyable, as well as uplifting. I was also able to grow and expand in my faith and participation in the church by being a part of my dorm. As a collective group, we all inspired each other to become better men, missionaries, and future fathers. We helped each other up when we were down and each person was invaluable to my experience in this church.
