Brad’s acclaimed feature documentary “Landfill Harmonic” garnered over 40 festival wins in 250+ festivals (including SXSW Audience Award and AFI Fest Audience Award), and was acquired by HBO, among other global platforms. The Oscar-qualifying film tells the heartwarming story of a youth orchestra in Paraguay that plays instruments made entirely from garbage.

Brad’s other films include “Dani’s Twins,” an eight-time award winner documenting the parenting journey of a quadriplegic woman, as well as “My Village, My Lobster,” winner of the CINE Golden Eagle for Independent Documentary, and “Songs from Bosawas,” an adventure music film that documents the first professional recording of indigenous musicians in Nicaragua’s rainforests. He recently edited “Never Too Late: The Doc Severinsen Story” about the Tonight Show bandleader and world-famous trumpeter Doc Severinsen.

Brad spent three years as a Peace Corps volunteer in Nicaragua, holds an M.A. in Film and Video Production from American University, and is a native of Georgia. Read more about Brad on IMDB.
