About Brad

Brad’s career in the television industry began 20 years ago with Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi’s Renaissance Pictures and their shows “Hercules: Legendary Journeys” and “Xena: Warrior Princess.” A move to New York, brought Brad several seasons of HBO’s much lauded, “Sex and the City,” followed by 67 episodes of Bravo’s “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.” After being fortunate enough to work on the first Emmy award-winning season of NBC’s “30 Rock,” Brad went on to Co-Produce “Life Is Wild,” a family drama for The CW Network shot on location in South Africa. Over the past several years, Brad has alternating between Producer duties on Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie” starring Edie Falco, HBO’s “Bored To Death” starring Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis, HBO's stunning "Boardwalk Empire," as well as Showtime's "HAPPYish." Brad most recently completed the first season of HBO's "Vinyl," and is currently working on the first season of AMC's "Feed The Beast."
