While in college at SMU (after graduating Phillips Exeter early) he accepted a part time job with a startup company. Beginning in a garage, Brad worked part time for a CPA entrepreneur. Working together, he witnessed the step by step actions that built a company in one year to 450 employees, netting four million dollars, grown through cash flow without outside investors.

At the age of 25, he became the youngest CEO of a Top 50 Market Television Station in the United States.
As a CEO and employer of over 600 employees Brad turned an investment of $100,000 into $139,000,000 in gross revenues in conjunction with NFL Hall Of Fame member, Fran Tarkenton. The growth was totally self-funded through internal cash flow. He became number one in an industry where 99 percent of companies fail.
