Bryan holds a BA in Anthropology from Grinnell College. Since then he has toiled and recreated in a variety of worlds including archaeology, education, non-profit arts administration, and the public library. Now pursuing a Master of Science in Geography at Ball State University, his research centers on the role of edible landscapes in the post-manufacturing economy of Muncie, Indiana. This research is conducted through a critical approach to geographic information technologies oriented toward participatory and community priorities. Bryan thinks it’s important to read the *paper* version of the local newspaper every morning.
