Florida DHSMV Instructor Number 121736

Florida DHSMV Examiner Number 0073

Languages Spoken: English


Originally, I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii and have moved around the country/world until settling down in Florida back in 2000.  


I left the Air Force back in 1991 and since then have been a Locksmith, Help Desk Support, Adjunct Instructor and Network Engineer. Many careers, but all having to do with helping people! 

A few years ago my son turned 15, and as I worked my way through labyrinth of rules and regulations of how to get him his learner’s license, I discovered that there was no local driver's education or "Behind-the-Wheel" Instruction in our area.  While doing a bit of research, I found that the closest school was in Tampa, and the best/highest recommended school was 80 miles away.


To make a long story short, I decided to enter the field of driving instruction and offer this service to my community.  Rather than just becoming another driving instructor, I decided to open my own school and provide the best "On-the-Road" training that is possible to people in the Brandon/Valrico/Lithia/Riverview area; basically the entire Hillsborough section of the Alafia River Basin.


Over the past years, I have learned much, taught many, and strive to continue to improve service and engage my students (Not to mention, I have picked up a few really crazy videos along the way).  I have found that, yes, it can be, and is, very dangerous; but the rewards of seeing a first time driver who has never been behind the wheel going from being absolutely terrified and near tears, to a calm and confident driver is extremely rewarding.

Brandon was born and raised here in Florida. He attended school in the Riverview area, so he obviously brings lots of local knowledge and history with him.  He has had many jobs in the trades institutions such as HVAC, warehousing and carpentry.


When he isn’t working – he likes to spend time playing the guitar, lifting weights and reading. He really is looking forward to meeting new students, young and old and teaching them  how to drive!
