Area 51 Founder, Brad
Brad started sailing Lake Michigan and working on boats at age 10, and he’s never stopped. He has made a career out of his passion for sailing. As Captain of several prestigious racing programs over the last two decades, you could say he’s learned a thing or two about boats and logistics.
After sailing around the world, Brad anchored in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. When he isn’t obsessing over projects for his clients, you can find him restoring his own toys, or shopping at Ralph Lauren with his wife, Shani.
