After receiving his degree from the International Academy of Design in Chicago, Brad refined his concepts and realized his true talent for custom furniture and design. His philosophy is "form follows function" but has taken it to a level of excellence that most people have not seen before. His use of woods, metal, glass and a multitude of finishes, make his pieces not only functional works of art but timeless classics. Brad's ability to use strong materials and harsh angles to create the illusion of "uncomfortable" is genius. His pieces are masculine but sexy. Some desire to touch his work and admire the painstaking detail he uses with raw materials and finishes. While others ease into one of his furniture pieces and realize it was created to fit the human figure and the concept of "uncomfortable" is only an illusion which gives way to amazing style and integrity. His inspiration comes from his life's journey, family and the people he has encountered traveling around the country. Realizing "less is more" not only in his artwork but in life has inspired him to create some of his best work. The process of concept and design; to the final creation is similar to giving birth to a child. Being able to stand back and watch people marvel at his work, gives Brad an abundant sense of pride which continues to fuel his creative mind.
