Brandon was classically trained in ballet having attended the Quinte Ballet and National Ballet Schools.

After his training, Brandon went on to dance professionally with Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet where he had the opportunity to perform all of the great classical ballets and other significant works such as Stool Game (Jiri Kylian), Five Tangoes (Hans van Manen), Miroir (Mark Godden) and The Rite of Spring (Mark Godden). Brandon closed out his career by dancing in the 1997 Bravo! television production, Lost Gods, which featured choreography by Brian MacDonald and the music of R. Murray Schafer.

Brandon returned to school after retiring from the RWB where he obtained an Honours’ degree in Finance from the University of Saskatchewan and a Masters of Public Administration from the University of Victoria. Since that time, Brandon has worked as a consultant and senior evaluation officer in the field of performance measurement and evaluation as well as strategic and business planning.
