The BroPeds are a team of three best friends with a passion for adventure. We like to believe that we are some of the most daring individuals Minnesota has ever seen. We are currently seniors at the University of Minnesota Duluth and have taken advantage of every moment of life outside of class. With our combined backgrounds in Marketing, Engineering, Design, and Analytics, when we put our brains together, we can solve any problem. There won’t be a team that can travel across Europe with more determination and courage.
Our video highlights some of our craziest adventures during our college careers. Nick is showcased jet skiing under a lift bridge, hanging in a hammock from a 40-foot bridge, golfing on a 350- foot ledge, and rollerblading behind a moped. Brandon can be seen wakeboarding, jet skiing, exploring sewage tunnels, and sledding off of a roof. Brandon also had the opportunity to compete in Red Bull Crashed Ice in 2016. Andrew is the man of backflips, and every clip of a person back flipping can be claimed by him. Some of his other stunts featured include skydiving, snowboarding, and bungee jumping. We are still looking for a challenge that we can’t conquer, so bring it on!
We hope to see you in Europe soon!
My name is Andrew, I will graduate college this May with a degree in Marketing and Graphic Design. I love to travel and explore outdoors with friends and family and I can never get enough adrenaline. I partake in action sports such as snowboarding, cliff jumping, skateboarding, and skydiving and like to "send it" whenever possible.
I couldn't be more excited to be going on this journey of a lifetime with two of my best friends. With our combined experience in owning a business, marketing, design, sales, and engineering, I am confident that we can successfully sell just about anything to anyone, as Nick explains in his bio below. I can promise we will be one of the most entertaining teams in this competition, so make sure to follow our journey on this page!
Brandon knows how to make the best out of every situation. He doesn’t let fear take over his passions. He is majoring in Marketing Analytics and is looking to start his own business after school. Brandon is one that takes action and responsibility for the tasks that he endures. His passions for event planning and extreme sports is what leads his life today. Positive feedback and family support is what motivates Brandon. He’s a spontaneous and daring individual that is always looking around the corner to see what’s next.
*Thank you to everyone for all of the support!!*
Hello! My name is Nick Anderson and I am so excited for this adventure. I guarantee you will want to tune in to our team along the way, because we rarely find ourselves staying out of trouble. With that being said, there is no lack of experience in talking ourselves out of sticky situations. I could sell water to a well, Brandon could sell sand to a beach, and Andrew could sell ketchup to a woman in white gloves.
I am a senior at the University of Minnesota Duluth, majoring in mechanical engineering. I have a passion for adrenaline, and am always looking to push my limits. Heights in particular give me the biggest rush. They scare the $!*t out of me, but I love the feeling of laying it all on the line. There is nothing quite like trusting your entire life to a few sets of strings or a bungee cord! I am ready to take on this adventure with my best buddies, and we are going to do it in style.
