Bryan earned a Masters in Nonprofit Management from the University of Georgia’s Institute for Nonprofit Organizations in 2006 and a BA in Philosophy and Religion at Piedmont College in 2003. Before joining the Giving Kitchen, he spent 10 years working for the Georgia Conservancy in both development and programs. Bryan grew up in a restaurant - literally. His parents opened Schroeder's New Deli in Rome, GA when he was three days old - destined to work every role in the restaurant: dish washer, prep cook, fry cook, pizza cook, sandwich cook and server.
Bryan's passions include camping, paddling, music, beer and food.
