About Brandon Kleyla

Brandon spent seven years at Walt Disney Imagineering, working on over thirty different projects. However, one project was ongoing for those seven years, being a driving force in creating the Trader Sam's brand. He served as Sam's right hand man as decorator and writer on both Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar and Trader Sam's Grog Grotto. Brandon may have left WDI in late 2016, but is continuing his work in themed entertainment with Universal Creative and the exciting Universal Beijing Resort. But tiki is never far from his mind, currently digging up his backyard and building a tropical oasis of his own.
