Although his name sounds like he would be, Brandon is not from the mystical world of Skyrim (although that would be really cool). Instead of forging swords and shields, Brandon has taken a liking to the ever advancing technology of today's world. His love for technology all started by building computers with his father in their garage at home and, yada yada yada, now he works in IT. Brandon is a graduate of the University for Arizona and a diehard Wildcats basketball fan. If they lose you will most likely hear him yelling "Serenity now!" In his down time you can catch him hanging out with his buddy, Bob Sacomano, reading coffee table books about coffee tables, or eating pretzels (even though they make him thirsty). Also, his favorite show is Seinfeld.

His passion for technology and customizing computers is essential as he is an avid gamer and can play for hours during his spare time.

His ability to look at situations from all angles and persevere towards a successful resolution makes him a favorite among his peers and our clients (whose rousing requests of "Phil Please!" can always be heard around the office).

In his spare time, he enjoys hanging with his girlfriend, Catherine, working out, and has recently started to pick up the game of golf.
