Hi there, I'm Brendon Connelly, but you can call me Bren. I'm a dad, spouse, climber, board rider (skate, surf, split), mountain bike enthusiast, and reader. I'm a Fortune 500 refugee, currently serving as Chief Operating Officer for Habitat For Humanity Portland Region. For a while I ran a side hustle called BatteryHeroes which offered 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 a blog here. I also helped get BikeHacks.com off the ground, and wrote a few things. My Twitter username is bzo, but I stopped posting there in 2019. My musical preferences can be found at Last.fm, gawk at my bookmarks on Pinboard, or browse my hilariously amateurish photos on Flickr (kinda frozen in time). Also, if you know my normal email address, you can find me on Instapaper. If you'd like to contact me, hit me up at hello@brendonconnelly.com
