Brett and Kate McKay. Me (Brett) and my wife Kate are the main content creators on the site artofmanliness.com (The Art of Manliness - a blog dedicated to uncovering the lost art of being a man). We live in Tulsa, OK. I grew up in Edmond, OK, a suburb of Oklahoma City and I attended the University of Oklahoma. I took a break in college to live in Tijuana, Mexico for two years doing service. After graduating with a BA in Letters, I then went on to pursue my lifelong goal of going to law school. While attending the University of Tulsa College of Law, I started the Art of Manliness as something fun to do in my spare time. But the website really took off and took over my life. It turned into a full-time job. So after graduating law school in the top 10 of my class in May 2009, I decided to forgo a career as a lawyer and devote myself completely to The Art of Manliness, much to the chagrin of my parents. I'm deeply grateful for everyone who has supported AoM and kept me from taking the bar!
My wife, Kate McKay, grew up in Tulsa, OK. She graduated from BYU with a BA in History in 2003 and then spent a year in San Francisco volunteering with Americorps. In 2006 she received her Masters in Religion from Oklahoma City University. She has taught American History and Humanities at Tulsa Community College. We got hitched in Oklahoma City in May 2005.
