Brendan is a co-founder of Paintru, a graduate of Wharton's MBA program and the US Naval Academy. His own artistic expression is limited to finger paints but he cares deeply about artistic expression and art's ability to convey the zeitgeist of a time in history. His favorite artist is Michelangelo.
For those of you who do not know, Paintru is a 100% veteran-owned small business. Our founders, myself included, are all graduates of the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, and we all went on to serve in the US Military.
Along the way, we've lost friends, classmates, and comrades who gave their lives to serve our country and community. Each of these losses is heartbreaking.
