Brandon is living a life dedicated to serving the youth. Inspired since his teen years, he has diligently worked at several after school programs for the progression of the youth in his community. He currently is mentoring young men in the city he loves, Los Angeles. While invested in building long lasting core relationships, Brandon also understands the importance of instilling moral values such as: personal responsibility, commitment to your word, and especially establishing the pillars of faith in the hearts of young men.

Brandon has been working in retail/management for two years and has recently decided to follow his passion by going back to school at West Los Angeles college, to become a child development educator. His focus will be in special education. The legacy that Brandon is building will be to illustrate to young boys and men, what it means to be a father and a man of God.
