Hi. I’m Brad. 

I am a bit of a renaissance man. I’ve been everything from a professional chef, corporate salesperson, to a marketing ecommerce manager. What ties it all together is my creative approach to work. 
I am a fun (and a bit crazy) leader and team member.  It makes the day go quickly and we all get a lot done. I love to collaborate on projects.  
I’m what you might call a creative analytical.  I come up with great strategies and ideas and then deliver them. The start of most of my sentences is “What if…”

A Story

I never thought I would be fascinated with shoe shiners. In fact, I guess I never really paid much attention to them. But my recent trip to New York changed all that. 

I went to visit my daughter and her husband in their posh Brooklyn condo. We took a trip to Chelsey Market, a historically significant landmark that has been updated with quaint stores, fish markets and shops. 

While passing a little used hallway in the market, I saw a local shoe shine working his trade. I took a quick shot as he turned his head.

That particular picture stands out as a perfect image to capture the essence of the city and my trip. That is why I do photography.
