Brad graduated from Saint John High School in 1995, the University of New Brunswick Fredericton, Kinesiology program in 1999 and then obtained his International Languages Teaching Certificate (TESL) in Halifax, NS. Brad was a facilitator at UNB Saint John and UNB Fredericton and worked and studied in Siena, Italy and Torreón, Mexico and most recently was working at the Hispano American University in Heredia, Costa Rica.

Brad passed away unexpectedly at the age of 25 on Monday, October 21, 2002, while working in Costa Rica.
