Passionate about ensuring technology change is accessible and achievable for all.

Brad has spent his career working to understand people’s needs and creating technology solutions to achieve them.

He most recently served as the Director of IT Strategy for the City of Detroit, where he oversaw a wide range of large scale technology implementations. His time with the City of Detroit is most remembered for his time on the Covid19 Executive Team where he developed and managed a system to procure and distribute over 7.2 million items of PPE.
