Brandon, an early-thirtysomething from Denver, CO, is a loner with light. He’s comfortable dancing to the beat of his own drum, making up a few steps along the way. But like so many guys, such a commitment is far from easy.

Behind the golden skin and hazel-brown eyes is a guy on a journey. To figure out how to be who he is. To be 100% comfortable in the skin he is in. To heal the emotional and mental  scars and insecurities that plague him.

His mother has a saying, “I can’t be anyone else other than who I am. And if you don’t like me, you don’t like me.” And as Brandon explains, “That’s the kind of person my mom has made me out to be. I can’t be who I’m not. Being autonomous and being who I am authentically is who I am, and I can’t be who I am not.”

That’s why we have so much we can learn from Brandon. Because whether we want to admit it or not, we all want to be accepted, no matter how different we are. We all want to be seen for the beautiful, creative, and passionate individuals we know ourselves to be. Brandon is committed to a path of self-discovery, and he urges us to go on  our own flow. To become the kind of person that walks in our truth, changing ourselves–and the world around us–for the better.
