Hey, I’m Brendan!

I am a professional team leader with over six years of hands-on experience leading successful teams and digital initiatives by leading project sprints, ensuring high-quality delivery, and exercising collaborative team and stakeholder management. Able to wear many hats, including coding, design, marketing, and growth.

Currently, I am building brands via the internet and working with some of the top creators in the world. I started my career as a freelance web developer, and then I worked for 4 years at YC startup becoming the top expert and consulting hundreds of clients on web development and CMS platforms across the world.

For the past few years, I have been working with a variety of different music and media companies overseeing their digital operations. Under my supervision I have helped drive hundreds of thousands in revenue and helped scale the organization In less than eight months I have rebuilt a digital organization from scratch at Alamo Records, and we recently secured the number 1 album in the world for Lil Durk’s 7220.

Outside of music, I have been working on building a variety of different platforms, exploring Web 3, and working to continue adding to my skills as a designer, developer, and online marketer.

Testimonials

Jason Barone - Design & Code, Uber I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside of Brendan for a few years and I can say without a doubt he’s a unique talent in the music industry. His marketing work is awesome because it’s often full of fresh ideas that pull from his background in design, web development, and music production.He understands the culture and keeps a pulse on trends. And with his technical skills he’s able to strategize, prototype, and execute ideas from start to finish, which is inspiring to see. I’m excited to work with him more!

Thomas Thornton - CEO Hedge Fund Telemetry Brendan was excellent. I highly recommend. He not only achieved the goals I needed in a hurry on a Sunday ahead of a big launch but gave me ideas for social media integration. He works quickly and efficiently, listens well, and offers valuable advice.

Michael C. - Former Client Brendan was very professional and knowledgable! Definitely a Squarespace expert!

David Head - Data Engineer Lambda School Brendan epitomizes the hustle. In college, we spent every day working on web projects until 1am when the buildings closed and we got kicked out. Brendan's also one of my favorite people to brainstorm with. Some of my best work experiences over the last five years have been coming up with an idea together and launching experiments around it within days (or hours).
