Born and raised in Perth, Ontario, Branden moved into the city to pursue his education and obtained his Advanced Diploma in Architectural Technology from Algonquin College. Backed with his education, Branden, moved to Calgary to work as a Project Manager for one of Canada’s largest food service equipment suppliers, and shortly thereafter moved back to Ottawa to work as a consultant in the food service industry.

His sensitive approach and knowledge of the city and surrounding areas enables him to advise clients effectively with the most relevant information available, allowing them to make the most informed decisions possible. Branden prides himself on his coordination skills and being available day or night for his clients. Branden currently resides in Stittsville with his wife Tricia.
