Hi, I'm Brendan.
I'm a writer, editor, and social media manager based in Chicago. I am the Social Media Manager for recording artists The Hold Steady, Craig Finn and MGMT. I also have contributed to Noisey, Men’s Journal, New Noise Magazine and Riot Fest. I also founded the blog Obviate Media in 2006, and have overseen social media and company's digital media plan for several organizations.
I graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism with a focus in magazine writing. I have previously worked at Apple, US Cellular and I interned at Flavorpill when I lived in New York City.
I’m passionate about engaging users on social media, and I enjoy finding solutions to the challenges of building community, fostering connections and increasing brand recognition. I see enormous value in establishing a voice, and interacting with followers. Offline, I enjoy continuing that connection with users as well.
