Hi there, I'm Brendon Connelly, but you can call me Bren. I'm a dad, spouse, climber, surfer, and reader. I'm a Fortune 500 refugee, currently serving as Chief Operating Officer for Habitat For Humanity Portland/Metro East. For a while I ran a side hustle called BatteryHeroes.com which offerend hearing aid batteries as a subscription service. My LinkedIn profile tells the whole story.

I've been writing on the web since about 2002, and I keep an infrequently updated blog here. I also helped get BikeHacks.com off the ground, and wrote a few things. My Twitter username is bzo. I'm off and on with Facebook, but when I'm on my username is brendon.connelly. When I run, I track it at RunKeeper, my musical preferences can be found at Last.fm, gawk at my bookmarks on Pinboard, or browse my hilariously amateurish photos on Flickr. Also, if you know my normal email address, you can find me on Instapaper. Finally, my wife and I run a little Airbnb in the heart of Oregon's wine country--come stay with us! If you'd like to contact me, hit me up at hello@brendonconnelly.com
