Hi, I’m Brendan.

I’m a writer, media-maker, and lifelong student. I’m curious about all sorts of things and I love exploring new ways to learn and create.

Current fascinations include: antilibraries, narrative structure, writing hip-hop lyrics, creative habits, the Long Now, and the future of libraries.

Below you’ll find links galore. Take a look around and let me know if anything sparks your interest!
