LITTLE KNOWN FACT
Brad writes film reviews for a local online publication, AUSTIN DAZE. He also spent half a year studying at the “Uni” in Wollongong, Australia.
ASK HIM ABOUT
The beard. “People want to know if it itches? Does it get hot in the summer? How long have I been growing it? Do I shampoo/condition it? When someone asks how they can grow one just like mine, I tell them to work hard and stay in school.”
Brad grew up in Dallas, with a brief stint in Ft. Lauderdale as a teenager surrounded by retirees. Without passing go or collecting $200, he moved straight to Austin in 2007 after graduating from UNT. “I had visited many times in the early ‘aughts’ to visit buddies and knew this was the only spot for me in Texas.”
He spends his days with his lovely girlfriend, Tierney, and they have two 13-year-old cats: Penelope and Luna, a.k.a. Lunacy, a.k.a. Meow Meow Fuzzy Face.
A FEW OF HIS FAVORITE THINGS
Star Wars, video games, tending to the garden and the massive amount of tomatoes that won’t stop, building a classic arcade out of a tiny computer and an LCD monitor, collecting vinyls, going to see live music, and entertaining friends over a well-crafted meal.
MUSIC FOR THE SOUL
“We have a dedicated music room at the house (our neighbors are very forgiving).” He favors his Wurlitzer electric piano and the Nord keyboard which can masterfully emulate any sound. Tierney accompanies with her beautiful voice and a funky bass.
Brad takes currency in the form of pizza, chicken wings, and crawfish boils. He can also be bribed with Old Fashioneds, whiskey, whiskey and ginger beer, or the delicious and dangerous duo of whiskey and Austin Eastciders.
