For most of the 90’s, Brad was guitarist/chief songwriter of punk/pop band The Goops (Reprise/Warner Bros. Records). Prominent on the downtown-NYC scene where they played regularly at CBGBs and Don Hill’s Squeezebox, the band also did national tours with Rancid, The Offspring, Samiam and opening slots for Radiohead, Garbage and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. All three of The Goops’ music videos aired on MTV including their single for the "Mallrats” soundtrack and “Vulgar Appetites”, winner of AICP-MoMA’s best video of the year.

The aughts put Brad on the other side of the glass as a producer/engineer where he worked with artists such as Sean Paul, Ryan Adams, Paul Oakenfold and numerous indie bands. As one-half of production duo Locked, he remixed J-Lo, Usher, J-Kwon, Babyface, Faithless and The Butthole Surfers. Locked released a slew of original dance tracks that garnered play in NYC’s biggest clubs by DJ’s like Roger Sanchez and Paul Oakenfold. Locked tracks have been licensed for advertising and film and they supplied sound-design and scoring for Kevin Ford's film "Three Days" about Jane's Addiction.

In addition to the licensing and soundtrack placements that Brad has had for his band and solo material, he’s also composed music and sound-design for film and advertising clients including Coca-Cola, Panasonic, ESPN, Heineken, Minute Maid, and Casio. He’s been a Music Supervisor for film, including the feature "Tanner Hall”, starring Rooney Mara and Brie Larson.

From it’s inception, Brad was heavily involved in Converse Rubber Tracks. He helped create the program and flagship Brooklyn recording studio, overseeing design, gear selection and staff, then did the same for Boston. The program supplied emerging artists the opportunity to record in a professional environment with top-notch producers. Over the course of it’s 5-1/2 year run, Rubber Tracks also spawned over 100 international activations thru the use of “popup” studios lasting 1-3 weeks at studios as historic as Abbey Road. Brad oversaw activations in over twenty countries, personally attending dozens himself.

Brad currently produces and co-hosts the weekly podcast, Going Off Track, who’s guests since 2012 have included Vanessa Bayer, Laura Jane Grace, Dave Bazan, Fred Armisen, Jack Antonoff, Blake Schwarzenbach, Keenan Thompson, Fat Mike and Jenny Lewis.
