Brendan represented Western Jets, Victorian Metro U/19, EssendonFC, WerribeeFC, WilliamstownFC and CoburgFC during his aussie rules playing days and continues to support the Essendon and Geelong Football Clubs. Cricket is Brendan’s other love and he recently racked up over 35 years playing as an all-rounder and achieved Life Membership of Aberfeldie Park Cricket Club. Outside of working hours, Brendan enjoys spending time with family, hitting the gym, great food and drink, the odd punt (especially during the Spring Carnival!) and relaxing in front of a good movie or a favourite TV series.
