Brad leads SmithGroup's Phoenix office, while spearheading the design, planning and construction of laboratories focused on biotech, biomedical energy, forensic and health science research. His most recent experience includes significant work for the Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command at Pearl Harbor, and the Forensic Science Complex in Toronto, Canada. When he joined SmithGroup, Brad remembers "seeing the phenomenal work and award-winning projects and thinking, 'This is what I imagined architecture can be.'" Yet he says he never anticipated "the scope and impact of the projects, the diverse clientele, and being challenged by partners and peers every day. We partner on incredibly interesting and challenging projects," he marvels. When not tackling those challenges, Brad says, "I enjoy an escape from the hustle and bustle of life. Enjoying nature helps me appreciate a slower pace and what's important."
