Brad started his professional performing career at age 12, entertaining people at fairs, festivals, and corporate events through age 17, when he attended the prestigious Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Clown College in Venice, Florida.
After two years performing with Ringling Brothers circus, he continued his performing career internationally for over 20 years, on cruise ships, at theme parks, schools and corporate events worldwide.
He put performing on the back burner for several years in his 30s while pursuing a successful career as a financial planner with A.G. Edwards & Sons and Wachovia Securities, helping families with personal finance issues, investments and estate planning. He held a Series 7 license in addition to earning an Accredited Asset Management Specialist designation from the College for Financial Planning.
