More about Brad:

If you were a CEO, what things would you make compulsory, and what’s one thing you would ban? Mandatory monthly mental health and wellness activity.  I would ban working Fridays and extend the hours Mon-Thurs

What’s your dream job? Being a general manager of a Major League Baseball team… I’d pull off some wicked trades.

If you could design the food pyramid without any health consequences, what would it look like? Chicken Fried Steak everyday.. and then maybe ice cream.  And an endless flow of essentia water.

What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done? Ziplining and the “rollercoaster” zipline in Thailand was pretty intense (and unregulated).  But perhaps the most daring thing I’ve done is moved out to Seattle, in a job field I’ve never worked in and with only knowing one person.  Back where I’m from, not a lot of people move away.  I miss home, but don’t regret it at all.  

What’s one or two things that people would say you do really well? Make people laugh, follow through on my word.

What do you need the most help with? Dating in Seattle is tricky. I’m ready to settle down. But the thing I need help the most with is probably not impulsively buying stuff on Amazon, I’m really bad at that. It’s nice though, I order so much that each package is like a new gift (since I forgot what i ordered).
