Outside interests

Brandon is a busy man, being married with four young children. Despite his busy schedule, he still manages to play premier grade tennis but finds it increasingly challenging as the years go by and the opposition gets younger. Despite this, travel remains a passion for him and he has been fortunate enough to have had a couple of international family holidays. His next destination is South America.
