Brad spent 8 years in the U.S. Air Force as a S.E.R.E Specialist. He taught in the Survival & Evasion section, Resistance Training section, and the Water Survival / Underwater Egress Course.

During his time as a member of the world renowned Air Force SERE Instructors, he constantly improved himself by attending courses such as Airborne, SCUBA School, Dive Supervisor, EMT-B, Arctic Survival, Escape Training, and much more. He distinguished himself by earning his Master Instructor rating.

As a civilian, Brad has taught at the Army SERE School in both the Resistance Training and Survival sections. He has also taught at the Air Force's Evasion, Conduct After Capture (ECAC) course.

Brad was raised and confirmed in a Lutheran household. He currently attends Messiah's Fellowship in his local area. Occasionally he is encouraged to provide a teaching for his local congregation, but does so reluctantly since he is blessed to be surrounded by so many well-studied spiritual elders.

Not one to settle for being average, Brad has tirelessly worked on his education.
