Brandon experienced the rigors of the infamous Rat Line as an 18 year-old freshman at the Virginia Military Institute. Upon completing it, he ventured to Alaska to climb Mt. McKinley, the highest mountain in North America. Two years later, during Christmas break at VMI, he summitted Mt. Aconcagua, the highest mountain in South America.
After graduation, Brandon was hired by Greenfield World Trade to create sales relationships traveling throughout the Middle East and West Africa. Two years later, he joined the US Marine Corps. Over the next 8 years, he worked his way up to the rank of Captain.
Having served his country admirably, Brandon joined his father in Wheeler Expeditions, guiding people not only to have adventures of a lifetime, but a lifetime of adventure.
