A native of Wisconsin, Brad received his Master of Landscape Architecture and BS in Environmental Design, with a Minor in Urban Studies, from the University of Minnesota. When not in the office, Brad enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons and participating in many outdoor activities including camping, hiking, canoeing, skiing, fishing, golf and mountain biking.
