Having completed a BA in Media and Communications at the University of Sydney partway through 2015, Brendan took a step away from academia to work in a supermarket, bookstore, pub, factory, and at a beachside market selling cupcakes before realizing that he should perhaps refine his skill set by recommencing his studies. Irish by heritage, Australian by birth, in August 2016 Brendan decided that moving to Leipzig, Germany, to pursue an MA in American Studies made complete sense. So far, so good.
Brendan's research interests are yet to be narrowed down much, as they have been clouded by a dominating, straw-haired fellow who recently came to power. In his spare time, he enjoys completing cryptic crosswords and anything related to sport.
