Biography
Chef Brad got his first taste of the kitchen growing up and having to help get dinner ready for the family because both mom and dad worked. During those early teen years the family suffered through the experimentation with spices and catching the kitchen on fire, but Chef Brad forged forward and kept on experimenting. After all these failures in the kitchen, the culinary field was far from his mind as a career. Following high school graduation from Lexington High School in Lexington, SC, Chef Brad went out job hunting for the summer and interviewed for several jobs relating to computer science which was his interest and hopeful major in college, but he had no luck… too young or not enough experience. So Chef Brad’s father suggested he go apply for a job at McDonald’s or Burger King. Chef Brad stated; ” I will never serve food for a living.” From that time on till the current day he cannot live that quote down. 
 Still not planning to enter the culinary field, Chef Brad attended Midlands Technical College and the University of South Carolina with a major of business and a minor in Computer Science. During that time in college Chef Brad started working at a local hotel as a doorman and barback part time in the nightclub. During that time the General Manager tried over and over to get Chef Brad to start working full time for the hotel and Chef Brad turned it down over and over. After a year and a half Chef Brad gave in and agreed. The general manager of the hotel put him behind the front desk for a month and then came to him and told him that he was going to turn his life upside down – “You are the new AM Restaurant Manager.” Chef Brad agreed but stated that he had no experience in the restaurant business, but the manger assured Brad that they would train him. So that started his career in the hospitality business. Through the years Chef Brad worked for several management companies over the southeast holding positions from Executive Housekeeper to General Manager. In 1993 Chef Brad was contacted by Wilson Hotel Management to come to Birmingham as fix problems that they had with the food and beverage operation at the Holiday Inn Airport property. So Chef Brad closed his consulting business in Jacksonville, Florida and moved to Birmingham. After moving to Birmingham Chef Brad decided to make the Magic City his home. During the past 14 years Chef Brad has worked with Christian’s in the Tutwiller, the Historic Holiday Inn Redmont, Alabama Restaurant Association and the National Restaurant Association. Currently he works as a Private Chef/Industry Bloger for ChefBradOnline.com, HRBAudit - Hotel, Restaurant, Bar Auditing and Training Specialist, and Regional Director for Chefs Registry, Culinary & Hospitality Staff Firm. Chef Brad also serves on a number of Advisory Boards, Committees, Charity Events and has received various awards.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
