Outside the Office

Brendan jokes that his only hobby is spending time with his two dogs and his wife, Amanda.

As a lifelong dog lover, Brendan owns both a large, hyperactive Vizsla (Allie) and a tiny, very relaxed King Charles Cavalier (Hazel). Despite being polar opposites, Allie and Hazel are best friends, and Brendan and Amanda spend as much time as possible playing with them.

Brendan also enjoys coffee, traveling, exercising and visiting with family and friends.
