Upon graduating from Rhode Island School of Design, with a Bachelor of Architecture as well as a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Brendan moved to Los Angeles, CA. He quickly became engaged in a career in entertainment. For the next decade Brendan worked as a set dresser, art director and production designer for low budget features and commercials including two Oscar nominated short films and a Cleo nominated auto commercial.
Brendan's film career and architectural background made him uniquely suited to working at the themed entertainment start-up "Gameworks", a joint venture between Steven Spielberg, Jeffery Katzenberg, Universal Studios MCA and Sega. Working as an art director for both Gameworks and the scenic shops employed to create these environments Brendan was instrumental in the execution of the first 13 locations as well as the office space for the rapidly expanding company. Brendan worked as both the art director and on sight construction manager for the first international franchise located in Guam where he oversaw all aspects of this 20 million dollar project.
In addition to Gameworks, Brendan has worked with Sketchers, Fredericks of Hollywood and Lennox Hearth Products to create retail locations, and in store displays.
Currently Brendan's focus is mainly on residential architecture and design. Brendan prides himself on residential remodels and interiors that fit each individual and families unique needs and design style. Having worked in entertainment Brendan is comfortable working in all vernaculars whether they be traditional, contemporary or highly modern.
Brendan also works as a real estate agent with Rodeo Realty CalBRE#01874942. There is nothing better than having a realtor who is also a designer. Brendan can help you create instant equity in a property with a remodel or help you stage your house for a quick and prosperous sale or rental.
