Brendan is a filmmaker living in Los Angeles, originally from Upstate New York. His career is primarily in Post-Production and producing content on weekends. He moved to California the day after completing his feature film directorial debut, “The Essentials,” which won numerous small film festival awards across and is now available on five continents through Wonderphil Entertainment. Most free time is spent writing, reading or surfing.
His professional work initially began in broadcast news, making Brendan a dynamic producer with an array of experience in front of and behind the camera. As an actor, he was praised as the “uber-hyper and dim-witted enforcer Bobby Bullets [that] steals the scene and every other one in which he appears” (-UnrealTV) in the digital-sales hit “All American Bikini Car Wash (2015).” His prior role as a trigger-happy gunrunner ‘The Squirrel’ secured his first performance nomination, ‘Best Actor in a Supporting Role’ at The Indie Gathering Film Festival & Convention (2013).
Off-camera, Brendan has produced dozens of bicoastal short-form projects, marketing content for leading social media brands across numerous categories, most notably as a writer at Quest Nutrition during their rise to world’s best-selling protein bar. Never shy of a crowd, he entertained global visitors as a tour guide at Warner Bros. Studios Hollywood in Burbank, CA. Prior to that, he traveled the country as an emcee for two seasons of national dance competitions with Kids Artistic Revue.
Brendan’s dynamic ability on-screen ranges from dramatic and comedic, even dancing in one of the most popular music videos of all-time, Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” (2014 – green shirt on the right!). He is currently seeking representation and management on and off-screen. Training includes ‘Lemmings Improv’ with National Lampoon (Sunset Bronson Studios), a Masters degree in Broadcast & Digital Journalism (Syracuse University) and BFA in Film Production (Rochester Institute of Technology).
