Brad lives on the south side of Indianapolis and has been skating since 1999. He first took an interest in skating after watching "Gleaming the Cube," a B movie starring Christian Slater. Brad was amazed how the board seemed to stick the the skater's feet in the movie and he had to learn. Between working full time and being a husband with two kids, Brad still finds time to skate. His board is always in his car. Skateboarding has been a positive influence in his life and he feels privileged to share his passion with others wanting to learn to skate.
