About Brandon Scholtz

Hi there! I’m Brandon, my friends call me Brando (like the ‘n’ was too much to pronounce) I am an adventure seeker, logophile, melophile and obsessed with detail. My friends describe me as a Broder Collie, if you leave the gate open, I will run out and go explore. Humour is my strong suit; I find inspiration in small things. I love telling people about new places and hyping them up to go out and explore. I believe in Neuroscience and the immense effect it has on our daily life by simply understanding how our brain functions. I love colouring my words to give a clear picture of what it feels, smell and taste like. “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” ~ Maya Angelou
