Iv taken most of them i think, Persuasive Presentations, Freehand Perspective Sketching, and his new Watercolor class earlier this year, and i took Color Mastery and Sketching on Location back in 2009.  i realized that my education in Urban Regional Planning did not prepare me for a carrier in urban design.  So i needed to find classes that would fit into a fill time work schedule, and his style seemed to really click with me.  Its really taken my design and visualization skills to a new level.

Hey Brandon,

Yes, I have, in fact my biz partner just took a class with him last weekend. He is very talented. We are fortunate to be here in SoCal where anything is possible... which is how we approach our business and projects.

Brandon, i thought i was sending you a comment and it's on my page, i haven't figured this site out yet.

Thank you, I'm just starting a blog as a place to talk about my design process and how things get built. It just launched when I joined land8lounge. Students and young designers are always asking me questions about design and inspiration and i hope to use it as a place to address those questions and have fun.
