Classically trained in piano and french horn, Brad's career is filled with experience not only as a musician and composer but as a theatrical director and producer.
The emotion of directing over 300 performances is an opportunity to grow and become a better director. What I witness has always left me in awe. From the jobs, assignments, and cues backstage to the empathetic performances of the talent on the main stage - the process far outweighs the performance.
