Bryan grew up in the South of England. When he wasn’t in school, he was chasing reptiles and amphibians as a member of the London Zoological Society’s Young Herpetologists Club. After high school, Bryan spent two years on a kibbutz in Israel, where he farmed dairy cattle, chickens, bananas, and orchard fruits. He later moved to New York, where he earned a BS in Biology, then on to Maine for an MS in Oceanography.
Bryan’s profound love of the outdoors led him to move from the Boston suburbs to New Hampshire, and to change careers from bank vice president to science teacher. While teaching science at Conant High School, he developed a course in Sustainability and was later selected to travel to Japan with the Fulbright Foundation to study education for sustainable development. He is a Fellow of the Siemens STEM Academy.
When not baking bread, working on the lathe, playing the Irish accordion, or reading science fiction, he can be found hiking or snowshoeing out in the woods behind his Peterborough home.
