Brandon graduated from Oregon State University in 1995 with a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Business Management. Immediately after graduation Brandon entered a career in banking and finance. For the past 8 years, Brandon has been employed as a Financial Advisor specializing in retirement planning and investing. Brandon is a member of the Elders for Canby Christian Church in Canby, Oregon and also is the chairman of the church’s World Missions Committee.
In 2015, after 2 trips to Uganda, Brandon partnered with the leaders of the village of Kacungwa to start the Kacungwa Community Cooperative. The Co-op is a partnership available to all the members of the local community which allows members to pool their crops and livestock to allow for bargaining power and the ability to negotiate higher prices when selling, giving the village a direct and immediate financial benefit compared to selling on a disorganized individual basis.
