At an early age, Brandon’s passion for technology began when he was first introduced to Gameboy Advanced SP. Before entering high school Brandon spent the majority of his time learning about electronics through gaming, online videos, and learning the components to build a computer.
As a ninth grader, Brandon recalls one class in particular that engaged him, Electronics.
