From there, he transitioned to working overseas security contracts and specialized in maritime security details in the Middle East and eventually worked with James. After hitch hiking around the country for a while, he started working for Executive Protection for major clients based in the California Bay Area; while details and names cannot be discussed, many of them are currently world wide figures in the social media world.

Brandi
Ladies Trainer
Armature model
Professional drinker

With roughly a decade of experience as a member of the Military Police Corps, Brandi has experience in both the law enforcement and combat capacities.
After years of carrying a gun in theaters like Iraq and Cuba, she knew she was different from everyone else. She then realized that she was being taught firearms manipulations by large males and was not, in fact, a large male.

Brandi has been using her experiences to mentor other female Soldiers how to operate a pistol that was designed for men. She's even taught some male ones as well after she beats them into submission.
