Kevin’s passion, apart from analysing a spreadsheet filled with numbers, is to see young people gain a greater understanding of their abilities and worth through education outside the classroom.

Senior Program Coordinator
Brendan hails from Rhode Island, USA via Christchurch, NZ and brings with him outdoor experience in abundance. He holds a Bachelor of Sustainability & Outdoor Education and has worked as an outdoor educator throughout the world.
He is a strong advocate for environmental education and environmental & social sustainability and shares his knowledge in such a gentle and unassuming way that his highly requested leader tag is well earned.
Brendan is another believer in the Land’s Edge sense of place ethos and walks the walk by only being found in only the most beautiful of locations whenever unchained from his desk.
