With DRD since
Seems like forever
Brad has lived and worked in many places around the world, but has called Colorado home for over 30 years. Coming from a family rich in engineers, scientists, and teachers, he naturally thinks he knows everything and wants to tell everyone about it, so becoming a roller derby announcer was inevitable. He's the classy, well-mannered one, because there's got to be at least one token grown-up in the room. He joined up with the Denver Roller Dolls just in time to announce their third bout ever and has been on the microphone for them ever since. Outside of derby, Brad is a family man and something of a jack of all trades; feel free to talk to him about anything.
As a child, Brad was always the youngest, smallest, slowest, and weakest -- yeah, the one who was always picked last for the team. This did not particularly endear him to sports and he mostly ignored them until taking up fencing in college, which appealed to his inner D&D nerd. He now holds a second-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. He can stay vertical on skates at practices, but don't expect to see him skating at a bout -- he wouldn't want to spill his beer.
In 2010 he recieved the Extreme Loyalty and Dedication Forever Award. In 2012 he received the "Best Announcer in the WORLD" Award.
