After completing his bachelor's degree, Bryan is now a graduate student in the leadership and organizational studies (LEAD) program and a full-time FPU staff member working as registrar's systems coordinator.

As both an undergraduate student and a graduate student, Bryan received a music scholarship.

On a drive one sunny day my not-yet-wife thought it would be fun to give me the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, a popular personality assessment based on the theories of psychology pioneer Carl Jung. She read me the questions and sorted me by the categories introversion/extroversion (I/E), sensing/intuition (S/N), thinking/feeling (T/F) and judgment/perception (J/P). I’m an INTJ: Introversion, Intuition, Thinking, Judging.
