Brendan grew up on the South Side of Chicago, where most people came from a similar background and an exotic trip was to the Wisconsin Dells. He followed his parent's advice, getting a good education and became a lawyer only to discover that within that lawyer's body is a soul filled with wanderlust bursting to get out.
Brendan scratched this itch by traveling the world. He has visited all 50 States and all 7 Continents and he's seen the world up close while running marathons on the Great Wall of China, Patagonia, around Mt. Kilimanjaro, northeast Australia and even in Antarctica. And he's not finished yet - with plans to continue seeing the world in countries yet unvisited as well as returning to some of his favorite spots.
Along the way, he has collected stories of triumph, failure, love, losses, and gains. Those stories have made him who he is today, and he relishes sharing his tales gathered on the journey of life.
