Physical Description Brayden has a narrow, well-toned build. He has a perpetual five o'clock shadow, kind eyes, and a mouth that always holds a hint of a smile. He cuts his own hair with a pair of scissors in the mirror whenever he finds it's getting long enough to get in his way, and the combination of that and his tendency to run his hands back through it while he's thinking results in it always being in disarray.

Brayden's warddrobe consists of two pairs of grey slacks, two pairs of blue jeans, eight button-up shirts (white, grey, and black), five worn tee shirts, a pair of gym shorts, and a single thin black tie. He has one pair of black loafers and one pair of brown leather sandals. He prefers to go barefoot when he can.
Body Art A detailed maori tattoo ranging from his right pectoral muscle over his shoulder and shoulder blade and halfway down his right arm.

Personal History Brayden has always been an impulsive, eager character. Growing up, he was the first one of his siblings to run and jump off a cliff into the ocean. So no one was surprised when Brayden - impetuous and brilliant as he was - tested out of his high school requirements and joined the professional surfing circuit. When he left the circuit and went to college two years early, he excelled and enjoyed it so much that he went immediately into medical school. At first, his interest in medicine was purely selfish. He was curious and intelligent and wanted to know how things worked and how he could fix them; that was enough. He lived for himself, by himself, saw his family regularly and happily, and genuinely enjoyed everything life offered him (with one notable exception).

When he was twenty-four, he accepted an intern position - not at one of the varied and impressive hospitals in Australia - but with an experimental research division in Antarctica. He learned a lot about healing with few resources and had the great opportunity to spend most of his time thinking on his feet. For three years, he studied there, then took his boards early, passed them with flying colors and returned home, eager to see the friends and family he'd been cut off from for several years. He found himself a position in the ER of a well-known hospital in Sydney, helped two of his best friends from med school start a family, and was quite pleased with himself... for about a year.

Then his itchy feet got the better of him and took him off again. First to a clinic in the Amazon, then to a marine research station off the west coast of the United States. It was there, working alongside Starfleet personnel on the underwater station that Brayden became fascinated with the possibilities of a career with Starfleet. Now thirty-three, he didn't see himself taking on a military mindset anytime soon, but he liked the people and the promise of exploration the work presented.

Having garnered a reputation for himself as an excellent psychologist and gifted doctor, his interest in serving Starfleet off planet led to three job offers on various ships. He chose one at random and ended up on a thoroughly delightful voyage with the USS Camelot for its last three years in service. During that time, he served the crew as a doctor and was hired by three crew members as an independent therapist.

When it docked at Starbase 234 and the ship's crew disbanded to different assignments, Brayden stayed on the space station. Although it was technically a 'stationary position', he was happy exploring life in the middle of space, meeting all the various people who stopped through on the station on their way to other places and hearing their stories.

When the Galileo docked at the Starbase and Brayden heard they were low on medical professionals on the crew, he snatched up the opportunity and immediately sent his CV to the relevant people. Within hours, he and the clearance levels he'd earned through his previous work with Starfleet personnel were approved and he took his meager possessions - a hover board, surfboard, and two gunny sacks - on board.
