When not kickin’ it in schools around the Northeast, Brian can be found loving everything that is outside, singing & drumming up a storm, cruising the streets of Boston on a bike, juggling a soccer ball, enhancing his climate nerdiness, and eating as much ice cream as humanly possible. With an unwavering belief in the power of youth to bring about positive change in the world, Brian can’t wait to see what future this generation is going to create!
