Brad was born and raised in Richmond, Indiana and graduated from Taylor University. He joined the Fireflies team in July of 2015 and has enjoyed being able to help bring Minor League Baseball back to Columbia and watching the BullStreet District transform into a thriving entertainment district! Before making his way south, he started his baseball career as an intern for the Richmond Roosters, and after a year away from baseball he found his way back to Minor League Baseball in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Over 13 seasons with the Fort Wayne Wizards/TinCaps, Brad went from a Group Sales Representative to the Director of Group Sales, and eventually Vice President of Ticket Sales. He brings the experience of helping open award-winning Parkview Field, ranked as the #1 Minor League Ballpark experience in the country multiple times.
Brad is joined in Columbia by his beautiful wife Kelly, and their son Callan (Cal) along with their Goldendoodle Eddie. A Buckeye fan at heart, Brad enjoys watching college football and relishes the challenge of living in SEC country! When he isn't at the ballpark, Brad enjoys running and any outdoor activity. He and his wife Kelly attend Gateway Baptist Church. Brad is also a board member for Katrina’s Kids and Boys and Girls Club of the Midlands as well as being an adjunct professor at the University of South Carolina and volunteering with FCA of the Midlands.
