With a never-ending drive and passion for design and built experiences, Brad embraces situational change disrupters that transform the industry’s future – and he leads CannonDesign’s charge to get there.

Brad’s relentless pursuit of new and thoughtful design solutions, coupled with implementable actions, channels CannonDesign’s creativity and expertise. He is the firm’s lead strategist delineating why CannonDesign strives to be an industry leader each day, while championing established values and progressing an innovative culture.
