I'm Brandon! I graduated from Fayetteville State University with a Bachelors in Education with a concentration in Social Studies and a Chinese culture/ language minor! GO BRONCOs! I love photography and shooting video. I love learning new stuff and I'm fascinated with learning about different cultures. I love traveling and have worked with churches in Mainland China and Hong Kong. Outside missions work, I have traveled all over the east coast of the USA and to Canada.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I am working as a Social Studies Teacher at 71st high school. I believe it is important to be a life-long learner, so I am currently attending Grace College of Divinity for an Associates in Divinity. I also just recently finished a TEFL certification through the University of Toronto online.
I have been working a lot with the youth in our church and assisting in any other areas that I can throughout my church. I also serve on a board of a local non-profit organization here in Cumberland County.

On a typical Friday night I am
Lately I have been working, but I really like taking Fridays and
the weekends to catch up with friends and relax! I really like
traveling to peaceful places and taking pictures. Also reading a
nice book outside at a cafe or something is a particular favorite
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Though I may not seem like it, I am actually pretty shy with new
people. But it might also have to do with the fact that I like
listening to people more than talking. I will speak my mind, even
if people will frown about what I have to say, but I think it's
more important being honest than hurting people in the long run.
You should message me if
