Andrew Bryan is a founder and director of both Trek Epic and Emerge, as well as a professional member of Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA). He has worked with adolescents and their families since 1989 and is a former board member of IECA. Andrew has been interviewed and quoted nationally on education related topics in The Seattle Times, The Lawlor Review, Post-Secondary LD Report, Newsweek, US News and World Report, The New York Times, CBS Marketplace, CBS Network Radio News, SmartMoney Magazine, Seattle’s KUOW Weekday, College Bound Teen, LA Talk Radio, Homeward Bound Parent Call-in, and most recently, The Baltimore Sun.

In addition to his career background as an educator, Andrew’s experience as a micropreneur has led him to a number of opportunities, including agricultural business interests, a coffee house owner, realtor, tourism marketing director, city councilor, and school board chair. The list is varied and curious, but very much indicative of what led him to guiding international walking treks since 2011. His mind is always scanning the horizon for creative ways in which those he engages with can pursue their interests and build a path toward true inner and outer success. As a result, Andrew is increasingly sought out to provide advice and guidance for adults in transition desiring to live a more fulfilling life indicative of their core gifts.

Moreover, Andrew’s own gift is to help others set the stage for living a life of purpose. His Core Gift allows him to help individuals realize they have unique gifts, which they must develop and share in order to gain determination in realizing their dreams.
