Howdy!


My name is Brennen... I'm named after a bar in Buffalo.

I'm a Service Designer and Design Researcher at IBM.

These glasses are 1 of 15 pairs.


As a designer...

I am passionate, dedicated, and eager to learn. I am currently functioning as a Design Researcher and DesignThinking Facilitator at IBM. My friends say that I shake sh*t up. I take that as a compliment.

I grew up between Upstate New York and Sunny South Florida. The constant commuting instilled a love of travel and finding fun even in the mundane. I believe that design should always be fun in some capacity. The feeling of overcoming a real booger of a challenge or aligning a cluster of opposing opinions, is a high I haven’t found elsewhere. 


As a human...

I try to stay active to offset all of the airport food and client dinners. I love to make things with my hands and regularly learn new art forms; sewing, embroidery, paintings, baked goods, you name it. Additionally, thrifting is my favorite sport.
