On Monday, October 31, 2016 Brandon Kaysen began his first official day as an Environmental Specialist. In his new post, Kaysen will be managing the K-12 environmental education program as well as sustainability-focused community outreach including environmental presentations, developing educational programming and participating in community events and partnerships.
Kaysen hails from Roseville, CA and most recently, Santa Barbara. He received his BA in economics and environmental studies at UCSB, and later pursued his masters from the Bren School with a focus on green building education, energy (efficiency & sourcing), and climate action planning.
An avid outdoorsman, sports enthusiast and self-proclaimed “health food junkie,” Kaysen spends his free time at the beach playing volleyball or body surfing and/or practicing acro-yoga.
“I’m very excited to be appointed as part of the ES team,” said Kaysen. “I’m looking forward to working with my city associates, assisting with the development of sustainable programs, initiatives and community outreach.”
