portrait of brendan hanna

Since elementary school, I've always loved to draw. As a teenager, I caught the skateboarding bug, which became my gateway drug into graffiti and late 90s underground rap music.

I spent ten years as a barista in Portland's specialty coffee industry while making music on the side, but I grew stagnant and knew I needed more creativity in my life.

After a series of adventures including a music business internship in LA and a five month stint in code school, I came full circle to my love of visual art, this time incorporating what I learned about development.

Now I design websites and apps, and when I'm not doing that, I'm generally still doodling, skateboarding, and making rap music! (check that out here).
