Writer / Director / Filmmaker
Brad is dad to his a 4-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son.
In this episode, Brad talks about the myriad odd jobs he's held to make ends meet and make movies happen—from working at a skatepark, to packaging incontinence briefs, to transcribing detective's interviews at 100 words per minute. We talk about his remarkable success (and tenacity) as an independent filmmaker and how much his life feels like scenes from a John Hughes script. He also opens up about the sacrifices he's made for his films and the tolls they've taken on his health, his family, and his marriage. As you might imagine, Brad is a master storyteller which made this episode especially tough to cut down—but particularly enjoyable to get lost in.
