Brandon grew up in Windsor, Ontario, Canada where he learned to sail 420s during his summers on Lake St. Clair. His parents thought it would be a great alternative to staying at home with a babysitter. Brandon now attends the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. He majors in Business Administration with an emphasis in Data Sciences and Operations and is member of the university’s sailing team. His college experience has taught him to embrace his “fly by the seat of his pants” personality and to find fun in every aspect of life. He hopes to bring USC success in match racing this fall. Besides racing on collegiate FJs, Farr 40s, and Catalina 37s, he likes to dabble in urban golfing, acting classes, ballroom dancing, country music, and pickup trucks.
His career aspirations include international yacht logistics and professional sailing team operations in hopes to sail in Transpac and Sydney-Hobart in the near future.
