From a young age, he felt creative inspiration to draw, build and collaborate, and Brady is still putting that into practice every day. Whether he’s helping design a school or housing, Brady loves helping others translate their imaginations into something tangible.

Q&A with Architect Brady

How did you decide on your career path?

My best friend’s father is an architect, so that certainly influenced me as a kid. I’ve enjoyed envisioning, designing and creating things for as long as I can remember – starting with LEGOs, then building complex models. I was constantly drawing and concepting in class, which meant I got plenty of reminders from my teachers to finish my homework before I continued designing!

What is your favorite part of the design process?

There’s nothing like the feeling of inspiration striking when that first line or form gets put on paper or that first piece of material is put into place. You know it’s the beginning of something meaningful.

Where is your favorite place to visit in the Midwest?

Wisconsin Dells, hands down!
