Hobbies & Interests

Brad is a native of Washington State.  He has lived and worked in the Seattle area for over 20 years.  When he is not helping clients, he likes to spend his time outdoors.  Long distance running, hiking in the Cascades and Olympics, and snowboarding as many days a year as possible.  He also loves animals, particularly dogs, and dedicates most of his free time to training and exercising his, admittedly spoiled, pup.
