Brad joins Manhattan Youth after successfully directing the after-school and summer programs at the Franciscan Community Center on the upper west side. Before diving in to the after-school world, Brad taught high school in both Long Island City and Seattle. During his Seattle years (sipping great coffee and enjoying seafood) he also gained valuable experience with Amazon doing customer service and in another tech company in a sales role. Yet education and serving kids and families remained his central passion which he brought to New York City when he and his wife moved here in 2013. During his spare time, Brad enjoys travel whenever possible, tennis, running, cheering on his hometown Seattle sports teams, and taking in all variety of arts and culture (and food) around NYC
