About Brad

I'm looking to become an advisor and utilize my experience to help grow promising businesses.

Alternatively, I'm looking for for someone to brainstorm with and work through the process of turning an idea into a commercially viable business through research, hard work, and cooperation. I'd like start with the commitment of 10 hours a week with the hopes of eventually dedicating full time efforts when an agreed milestone is achieved.

Ideally - but not necessarily - I'm looking for a technically sophisticated individual (e.g. developer, engineer, etc.) that is objectively optimistic and would benefit from pairing with my skill set. I want to develop a relationship where we are able to continually motivate each other through the difficult, yet rewarding journey that forming a start-up is sure to be.
