He found that the best way to explore a new country is on two wheels, which is why he has plenty of stories from his time spent motorcycling across Japan. Brandon is pursuing an MBA at Smith with the intention to pivot into the dynamic and developing world of technology and cybersecurity as he believes we are in the golden age for innovation and product development as the industry becomes more integrated and essential in our daily lives.
