Brendan believes that everyone should have access to higher education, which is why he feels so honored to join the Summer Search team. He is excited to bring his creativity and passion to help promote the organization’s mission, and to tell the many inspiring stories of Summer Search’s students. Brendan’s passion for higher education comes in part from his own college experience at the University of Miami. Go Canes! He developed an enthusiasm for summer educational programs in high school after spending four weeks away from home studying ancient Greek culture and literature. To this day, Brendan says that this summer program was one of the most enriching and inspiring experiences of his life.
Brendan also loves to explore the world. He has lived and studied in New England, South Florida, “Old” England, and now the Bay Area. He has backpacked through Australia and most of Western Europe, including Greece, of course. In his free time, Brendan enjoys playing basketball, watching English soccer, and performing with The Freeze, an improvisational-comedy-hip-hop band.
