Abstract ::
My name is Brandon Swafford and I exited from the womb into this world on June 15, 1984. I've always had an intrigue and curiosity for the design of things. As young as 5 years old, I began to take apart my toys and see what made them tick on the inside. I was a diligent 8-year old in my uncle's wood shop slaving away at scroll saws, lathes, sanders, and other power/manual tools to create my latest desires: bows and arrows, ukulele guitars, puzzles, animal carvings, etc. On into the high school years, I established several entrepreneurial startups, the two most notable being BMXPLOSIVE, a BMX racing apparel and accessory company, and Swaff Solutions, a turn key web development business for those needing websites. As a Design Student at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA, I studied Industrial Design for 4 years as well as Management and Marketing.

Personal ::
I'm a student at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) and have been since Fall 2002. The most important thing in my life in my relationship with Jesus Christ. He is my Lord and Savior and keeps me going when things get tough. I enjoy music: singing, writing, playing, and recording. Other interests include graphic and web design, movie quoting, sports, etc. Rather than going out with 800 people, I would rather just chill and hang out with 3 or 4, or even less, people.

I used to race BMX across the nation, but had to give it up when I came to college. In my spare time, I still try to get out to the race track to socialize with old friends and keep in shape. Other sports I enjoy are basketball, golf, tennis, baseball, and full contact 21.

As far as my personality, I'm pretty laid back. I like to just take things easy, make things fun, and try not to worry. I have a very dry sense of humor. I get a lot of joy out of making people laugh and also by doing things for them they probably wouldn't expect. I'm a big believer that it's better to give than receive.
