Throughout his tenure with TNP, Brad has contributed his expertise to numerous productions, witnessing the remarkable growth of TNP over the years. His enthusiasm lies in fostering even more opportunities for involvement as TNP continues to evolve in its new facility.

Brad’s multifaceted interests and dedication to the arts underscore his dynamic dedication as he eagerly looks forward to the future of TNP.
