Born to native Wisconsinites, Brian Kendzior has lived & played in the Wisconsin wilderness for the majority of his life. Needing to balance his passion for computers, Brian took up camping and hiking at a young age and never looked back. With friends, he has helped plan and lead numerous successful trips into the backcountry with minimal casualties (ask him about Dudley the canoe). Now a Senior Computer Science Student at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire, Brian decided to join the SCA before he graduated to explore the possibility of not having to sit in a cubicle for the rest of his working career. Brian spends the majority of his free time playing guitar, plotting his next epic wilderness adventure, or staring at a computer screen cranking out countless lines of code.
