Mr. Brad was once a kid himself!
Born in San Diego but planted in Central Florida before a year old, he grew up listening to his dad sing and play the guitar. His mom could have hours to herself, if she didn't mind the noise, by providing young Mr. Brad with overturned cooking pots and wooden spoons! He picked up the guitar at the age of 14 and spent most of his time playing music to the waves and busking for tips on Pier 60 -- which was only a short walk from his house in the town of Clearwater Beach, FL.
For nearly the past 20 years he has been teaching and playing music in the Tampa Bay area. Since becoming a dad himself back in 2011, Mr. Brad has focused on creating musical performances to educate and inspire young kids.
