Written word and Theater Artist

Brendan is a writer, performer, and artist doing their best. He’s acted with and written for multiple theatres across Omaha. Some favorites are Red (Ken, Bluebarn), Raskol (Raskol, GPTC), Freakshow (Mr. Flip, 21&Over at OCP), Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde (The Marquess of Queensberry & others, UNO Theatre), Dark Play, or Stories for Boys (Tony, Male Netizen & others, UNO Theatre), and The Merry Wives of Windsor (Falstaff, Benedictine College). Their writing credits include Sineaters (Bluebarn’s Witching Hour), Horsesh*t Foul Play (Shelterbelt Instant Theatre Bootcamp, with Beaufield Berry), and multiple shows with Red Theater Omaha. He is a cofounder, producer, and director for FireBelly Rep, where his BEASTIARY served as the inaugural season closer. He also worked on FBR’s unreleased true-crime fiction podcast, Panopticon. Currently, they are co-writing a horror novel for Level 4 Press, and working on trusting themselves in their visual digital art abilities by posting doodles online and offering commissions for custom cartoon portraits. Brendan is excited to join WhyArts and share his passion and love for all types of creative expression.
