Hello. My name is Brad, and this is 1twentyeight.com. I am married to Julie, and have two kids. I’m originally from Texas. From 2006 to 2011 we lived in the United Kingdom (Cardiff, Wales) where I was the Director of a charity (non-profit), CommunityOne. This site was birthed during my time there. In August 2011 we moved to Portland, Oregon. After a brief stint at OCHIN and five years at Puppet, I am now the Director of Customer Success at BlueVolt 1.

I use 1twentyeight as a place to write about things that strike my fancy.
