Bradley began his career in theatre consulting when he took his first piano lesson at the age of four. Some years later, he found a home on stage, in the orchestra pit, and as a set designer with his local community theatre company. Eventually he combined his passion for music and theatre with his education in architecture and began specializing in performing arts design. After nine years as an architect, dedicating himself to the performing arts world through consulting was a natural progression – first in acoustics and then as a theatre designer. Collectively, his experience affords him keen insight into every aspect of the theatre design process and a wealth of first-hand knowledge on creative, technical, and administrative operations once a project is open.
Bradley’s recently completed project work includes Klarman Hall, the main convening hall at Harvard Business School; The Momentary experimental visual, performing, and culinary arts venue operated by Crystal Bridges Museum, and the new theatre and dance building at Macalester College in St. Paul. He has over 50 performing arts projects completed or under construction, as well as several studies and unrealized projects.
Bradley is a Member and Director of the American Institute of Architects. He is a Member of the United States Institute of Theatre Technology, Vice Commissioner USITT's Architecture Commission, as well as a Committee Member of USITT's Diversity Equity and Inclusion Committee. He is also a member of the United States Green Building Council.
