An instigator of the the inter-office Nerf War of 2011, Brodie Colbourne is a Graphic Designer. He's best known around the office for his repulsion towards any kind of fruit or vegetable, his home-printed t-shirts with witty slogans and his brightly coloured pants. If he had any superpower it would be the ability to fly and when not working can often be found chasing pigeons in the park.
