Brad was born in Phoenix, AZ and after a move to Georgia spent his early years in Denver, CO. It was in Denver that his love of sports grew as well as his loyalty to the Denver Broncos. In a dramatic shift of scenery, he moved to scenic Clovis, CA where his parents still reside. Brad attended Clovis West High School where he played basketball and volleyball leading to a volleyball scholarship to CSU, Northridge. While at Northridge, he studied sociology and business and entered the world of finance upon graduation. He was not fulfilled in the world of business and his wife (girlfriend at the time) had started teaching for an alternative school for at-risk students and absolutely loved it. Behind her back, he applied for a different location at the same school and eventually got the job and started his career in education. After teaching for a few years in Northridge, he moved up to Sacramento for his first administrative role. To make things more interesting, he got married to his lovely wife Lisa, bought a house, and started a new job in a new city, all at the same time. He and his wife lived and worked in Sacramento for many years where he took up fly fishing, hunting, and chasing around his daughter Emma who was born on December 4, 2008. A couple of years ago, the opportunity to work for Fusion Academy came up, and he could not resist! Brad and his family moved back down to Southern California to his old stomping grounds and re-established his roots in Southern California. This time around, he found his new obsession outside of work… CrossFit. When he’s not working or with family, people are likely to find him at the gym with his second family.


CrossFit, fishing, hunting, and hiking
