Recommendations

"Brad is an absolute pleasure to work with. Always eager to find the solution to client challenges with a sharp wit and excellent critical thinking, and always driven by a positivity that's infectious with the team. He's an excellent storyteller, with that rare ability to tell simple, concise, and hard hitting stories. His inquisitive nature has led to him being well versed in many aspects of digital and technology during our time working together. Oh yeah, and he's freakin' hilarious too. I look forward to our paths crossing again soon."

"Brad was extremely hard working and always came to the table with a plethora of ideas. He truly knows what it means to be a team and he made concepting very easy. Brad's passion to produce great work is addictive. Brad and I worked on projects from Wet Ones and Smucker's to internal introductory videos. And his sense of humor is infectious. Brad is definitely one of those guys you come across and realize he truly can do anything. If ever a project comes up that you're unsure about how to create or produce, Brad never fails. He will get it done. Bottom line. He's an amazing human being and a great friend."
