About this Brandon guy

I’ve has spent the last couple of decades making infrastructure run, learning, building things, and being a wee bit sarcastic.

As much as I enjoy making things work, and learning from my mistakes (of which I promise there are many) I also like to unplug to get dragged on hikes by my wife, playing with the dogs, appeasing the cat, clucking back at my chickens, and spotting various animal tracks around the homestead.
