Brian is pursuing a Master’s of Education in the School Leader Program; School Developer Strand. Before joining HGSE, Brian worked as a Program Director, launching the Philadelphia region of The DREAM Program, Inc, an educational non-profit. Additionally, Brian was a 3rd grade teacher at Success Academy Charter Schools in New York City. While pursuing his undergraduate degree at Emory University, Brian’s interests in the educational disparities within our country grew, leading him to Harvard. After graduating Harvard, Brian intends to launch an educational start-up addressing the widespread issue of low levels of agency and efficacy in our most vulnerable youth populations. The goal is to use the start-up as a foundation to revolutionize the way we approach education in our nation. Aside from education, Brian values spending time with family and friends, meditation, working out, traveling with loved ones, cooking and binge watching “bad” television.
