Brennan Bizon Class of 2016
Brennan graduated from Cardinal Mooney in 2016 and has just completed his sophomore year at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. He is pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, with a double major in Information Systems Management and Marketing.
Many of Brennan’s fondest CMHS memories involve the enduring friendships he made during his years at Mooney; intramural basketball, ski club trips, and bonding with classmates through the challenges of AP classwork.
Brennan appreciates the time he spent in Cardinal Mooney’s Art Department under the direction of his teacher, Mr. Butler. While taking art classes all 4 years at CMHS, Brennan’s creativity and his love for art and painting flourished, which helped him to “think outside the box” and find his own artistic style. As just a CMHS sophomore, Brennan launched his own art-focused business, Bizon Customs, hand painted sneakers and footwear.
Personal Life & Interests
Most of Brennan’s free time is spent dedicated to his small business and creating very specialized and detailed custom shoes. Over the last four years, Brennan has had the opportunity to travel to Los Angeles for an art competition, exhibit his work at several “SneakerCon” events, and become a sponsored artist for a paint company, Angelus Direct.
Brennan has created shoes for the likes of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, Grammy-nominated artist Kehlani, and many other athletes and well known personalities. As he continues his education at Duquesne University, he hopes to further combine his love of art with his business degree, by potentially working for a major footwear company or continuing to grow Bizon Customs.
