Meet Brandon


I grew up in Fair Oaks and have an in-depth knowledge and connection to the local community. My early work experience with the Sunrise Recreation & Park District as a lifeguard, swim instructor and manager taught me core values of Community.

Prior to joining the SMUD Board in 2016, I served as an elected Board Member of the Fair Oaks Recreation & Park District for more than 8 years, including 2 years as Chair, in 2010 and 2015. In 2011, I was elected as the Special District Representative to the Sacramento County Treasury Oversight Committee and chaired the Committee from 2014 to 2019.

In addition, I also continue to serve as the Immediate Past President of the Environmental Council of Sacramento.

I first became interested in SMUD while a student at U.C. Davis researching SMUD's Upper American River Project hydroelectric dam system. Today, I work on the cutting edge of vehicle electrification and grid integration technology and policy using my renewable energy background, gained at the California Energy Commission.
