Name: Brendan Higginbottom

Age: 20

Relationship status: Single

Hometown: My dad is in the military so I really don’t have a hometown.

Time in Lawrence: Two years

Occupation: I’m a student currently doing a double major in Chinese and English.

Dream job: Working as a translator; translating novels, poetry and stuff.

What were you doing when scouted? I was walking back from a coffee shop.

Describe your style: I don’t pay attention to style. I don’t have many clothes. I just go with what is practical and functional.

Fashion trends you love: Not really. I’m probably the wrong guy to ask about fashion and style!

Fashion trends you hate: There are no trends that really bother me. Whatever someone wants to wear is fine with me.

Fashion influences: I really don’t know. I can’t pin it down to anything. However, I do like button-up shirts.

What would you like to see more of in Lawrence? I don’t know. That’s a tough one!

Less of? Nothing comes to mind.

Tattoos or piercings: None

Whom do people say you look like? The actor that played Frodo [Elijah Wood in “The Lord of the Rings”]

What type of music do you unwind to? I listen to different things. But I’ve been listening to quite a bit of jazz lately.

Tell us a secret: I’m a pretty boring person but… I like ironing clothes!

Brendan, if the whole translating poems and stuff doesn't work out, you'd make a great Hogwarts instructor — Prof. Higginbottom!
