Departing the womb on California's central coast, Bradford eventually made his way to Cal State University, Northridge. During his studies, he interned at the Emmy Award winning production company, The Mark Gordon Company, while simultaneously writing for/directing a cavalcade of celebrities (Mark Hamill, Eric Roberts, Ed Asner, Troian Bellisario, etc.) in two independent productions.


Post-graduation, Bradford formed Ugly Brown Chair Productions with Joe Gonzales, building a large portfolio of film & television scripts, as well as multiple award-winning short films. Within only a couple years, the pair had not only optioned a feature to an award-winning director and pitched programming to HBO, but were invited guests at San Diego Comic Con and the Cinequest Film Festival.


As a solo artist, Bradford created short scripts for an Australian showreel company before landing a position writing 40 episodes of Amazon Prime exclusive docu-series programs produced by the Turnt Network. Since 2020, Bradford has paid his bills with commercials, writing for various multi-million dollar ad campaigns. He’s also a published contributor to the MAD-inspired humor magazine, FREAKY.


Yet, if all that wasn't enough to make you love him, at his core, Bradford is a colorblind husband/father whose dream job is to write for the Scooby-Doo franchise. In fact, he’s got a whole website dedicated to it...
