TEAM MEMBERS

Team member Brendon and Blue Fish

Brendon Thach
Ceo / Founder

Brendon is an entrepreneur, designer, and has been fishing all his life. He used to get dragged out of bed by his father before the sun came up to go look for rockfish, and while he didn’t understand his dad’s motives back then, he certainly does now. Brendon began recording himself while rediscovering fishing and started collaborating with his creative partner, Erin, in 2015. Brendon graduated from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County at the end of 2016 with a degree in Graphic Design.

Emma Patterson
Video Editor

Emma is Erin’s sister and had been hearing tales of Erin and Brendon’s fishing adventures long before she joined the team.  She grew up on a steady diet of music, dance, and theatre; however, these are not her only passions. She is a Ravenclaw at heart and has a fondness for art and books; she loves to dive headfirst into stories and fill her head with new worlds.  She has a deep love and appreciation for nature and animals and wants to make sure that everyone helps take care of the environment in their own ways. Emma recently graduated from West Virginia University with a BFA in Acting and also studied voice, dance, and writing/editing during her time there.  Now, Emma works behind the scenes: editing videos, checking grammar, writing descriptions, doing research, and helping to make a more eco-conscious team.
