Brandon graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in business and psychology, and spent his first two years after graduation working as a management consultant in Dubai. He worked on strategy & operations projects across the Middle East, Europe and Africa, developing a skill-set for how to effectively implement new concepts across diverse cultures. Brandon then relocated to the US to continue working as a Senior Consultant out of Chicago, IL. While he enjoyed the problem-solving nature of the work, he felt he should be serving a different client; it was people, not corporations, that he wanted to see grow. Recently, Brandon has been applying his business background to the mindfulness field by supporting two education initiatives commissioned by Thich Nhat Hanh. He lives in Escondido, California.
