Brendan Kiel

Founder, Creative Strategist


Brendan founded Top Shelf Design in 2004 with the goal of establishing a company focused on exceptional design and customer experience. As our fearless leader, he’s served nearly every role within the company, from developer to salesman to marketing and search engine optimization expert. He’s even been known to serve as custodian when things get too rowdy around here. Contrast that role with his educational background as a graduate of Case Western Reserve University, a master’s degree in planning from Georgetown University, and an M.D. from George Washington University.

Did you know? Brendan is board certified in anesthesiology and practiced for six years before retiring in 2012. He’s also a veteran of two successful Internet start-ups. Brendan is a big-time fan of The Ohio State Buckeyes as well as the reigning American League pennant winners, the Cleveland Indians.
