Owner

The definition of work hard, play hard.

Christian makes his dreams reality. Literally. Ever wonder where the Center 615 Main facade design came from?

No one tops a Paro Halloween costume. No one.

Not to be confused with Brendan Benson,
although he is known to play a little guitar.

Brandon fixes everything and makes it better than it was before. Wasp problem on the Center 615 deck? Not anymore.
“I’ve killed 100s of wasps.” – Brandon

Dog whisperer of sorts. Lover of music, bbq and sarcasm.
