Currently a teacher and researcher at the University Laboratory School, Brendan has spent time both in the United States and Japan as an international business consultant and business owner. While in Japan he spent much of his time studying the Japanese style of Total Quality Management (TQM). That experience has heavily influenced his approaches in both the commercial and educational spaces.

When he transitioned to becoming a teacher/researcher he brought the core tenets of TQM with him into education. Key TQM principles like miryokuteki hinshitsu (aesthetic quality), kansei (including the user in the design process) and kaizen (continuous process improvement) have been integrated into the way he develops accessible, learner-centered and formative education programs for students, teachers and business executives.

His collective experience has helped Brendan with his work at The Janus Group, a 21st century training cooperative that creates professional development programs designed to improve the way schools and businesses collaborate, communicate and co-create. The Janus Group serves as the chief architect of Hawaii’s Future Ready Learning project which is the first state-wide technology integration effort linked to the USDOE’s Future Ready Schools initiative. Over the next five years The Janus Group will be training 14,000 educators at 288 schools around the state to help Hawaii’s 175,000 students become Future Ready.
