Brendan O'Malley
Brendan and his wife Christina have two intelligent and beautiful daughters; one in Glenside, and the other at Pheasant Ridge. I currently work at Echo Incorporated as Automation Technician, and moonlight as a DJ at Q-Bar in Glendale Heights and other locations in the area. In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with family and going to the movies — I'm quite a movie buff! I look forward to working with fellow QBEF board members as well as all schools in the district.
