"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro." - Hunter S. Thompson
Born and raised a hundred miles from Orlando before moving there in 1997, Brendan has always lived within the shadow of theme parks. Long before being directly employed in their scene shops, he spent his childhood building fake film props and painting murals on the walls of his room, thanks to the tolerant nature of his extremely forgiving parents. Beginning immediately after high school in 1994 and continuing to the present day, he has worked in a wide array of trades - lighting, carpentry, stage and set construction, scenic painting, television and film grip work, truck driving, custom framing, special event planning and design, freelance mural painting, graphics and web design, amateur film making, robotics, electronics, puppetry, special effects, haunted attraction design, book illustration, and a great deal of prop construction. Equally at home building robotics for a giant monster ant, converting his home garage into a mad science lab to entertain local trick-or-treaters, or piloting a home made flying machine into the Atlantic in front of 90,000 Miami spectators, Brendan has created this site to continue his adventures in designing and building themed oddities for any and all levels of dreamer - from the front yard haunter to the high-end themed restaurateur.
The next wild daydream he builds may be yours.
