Hi! My name is Brennan Monaco, and I’m a recent history graduate (BA) from the University of Florida, where I completed my undergraduate thesis “Spectacle and the Sins of Empire: The Transatlantic Legacy of Edmund Burke’s Crusade Against Warren Hastings and the East India Company” as a member of the History Honors Program. 

In the Fall of 2017, I will begin graduate school at Sidney Sussex College, University of Cambridge, where I will pursue an MPhil in American History.

My other areas of interest include national security, foreign policy, and American politics more generally. In my rare free time, I enjoy reading literature from outside of my field, consuming vast (and almost certainly unhealthy) amounts of tea, weight-training, and traveling.

Aside from my academic pursuits, I have spent 22 years in theatre, including 15 years as a professional actor. I am a proud member of the Actors’ Equity Association and am eligible for SAG-AFTRA membership. My acting credits further include radio, national television, independent films, and industrials.
