My Name is Brandon Lee Maze, it was merely chosen because my parents liked the name "Brandon" and my fathers middle and surname is Lee Maze. When I was a kid, there was always another boy named Brandon in nearly all of my classes. As the years have gone on, I feel as though the name has diminished in commonality, however, there is a myriad of variations of the name. Most of my friends call me Brando, after Professor Heil instructed us to create a "web presence" I chose the name Brandomaze because my full name was already taken on Twitter. In order to have a name that is uniform throughout all of my internet accounts I chose my nickname plus my last name. That is how my blog URL address was conceived. A lot of people think that my nickname has something to do with Marlon Brando, but that is not the case. I have pride in my family and have grown attached to my name, even if I could change my name, I do not think I would. I was briefly known as Coach Moustache while coaching Track and Field at Mission Hills High School because I had a rather extravagant handlebar moustache at the time. There is a small part of me that misses my ridiculous moustache dearly.
