Brad has been a guest at local science fiction conventions for thirty years. Formerly a contractor at NASA Langley Research Center, working at the Visitor Center and in support of traveling exhibits, he has also developed presentations for the Science Museum of Virginia. These assignments came as a result of being a space-program fanatic from the earliest days of NASA.

In the mundane world, Brad owns Group 7 Properties, a residential property management business with condominiums and townhouses in Hampton and Newport News.
