It was a childhood family friend getting involved in theatre that introduced the idea of acting to tiny Brad’s head. “Wait! This is something a person can do?”, he thought to himself. As such, by junior high, he committed to learning at a local theatre school in their young company learning to know and share himself in the aid of telling stories. He has appeared in numerous national commercials, been recognized in the New York Times for the web series, “He’s With Me” and continues to seek opportunities to explore acting and performing in one of the greatest cities in the world (after Winnipeg). As an actor in NY, Brad has studied under Suzanne Esper at William Esper Studio and continues to study on camera technique with Bob Krakower, craft with Rob McCaskill, and improv at the Upright Citizens’ Brigade.
He began his hosting career at age 20 by parlaying a volunteer position into a paid gig as radio DJ in the Canadian Rockies. It was only two years before he was given the opportunity through a national search to become a VJ at MuchMusic, the Canadian equivalent of MTV. There, he took what was supposed to be a 3 month contract and spent the next 3 ½ years interviewing such personalities as Tom Cruise, and Celine Dion, representing the channel at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia, and co-creating and co-producing his own show BradTV. Since this time he has hosted from the Red Carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival, interviewing the likes of Brad Pitt, Borat, Cillian Murphy, Nick Cannon, William H Macy and many more. He has presented and interviewed for the VH1 Top 20 Video Countdown from the NCAA Final Four, the Daytona International Speedway, Club Med Turks & Caicos, and Walt Disney World. He has narrated specials for VH1 All Access, VH1 News, and VH1 Daily Rewind. He’s also been seen on movie screens across the country as the face of Screenvision, a cinema based advertising network of over 15,000 movie screen across the country.
Most recently he’s been seen as one of the hosts of Lit Entertainment News; a go-to destination for up-to-the-minute celebrity stories and entertainment news, LIT snoops, scoops and breaks exclusives live, and deep dives into the trending social media conversation.
Launched during COVID in July 2020 as a fully remote production, Lit broadcasted live every weekday across two continents and during it’s run, Brad hosted in excess of 600 hours of live LIT programming.
