The vineyard manager
Born in the humid, deciduous bottomlands of Southern Illinois, Brad never would’ve guessed his meandering path of life would lead to Palisade. With staid rivers of coal just below the surface of his hometown, most young men went subterranean right after high school. Instead of going underground to mine, Brad spent 6 ½ years earning a bachelor’s degree in business from Southern Illinois University. He then trailed some friends to Denver to jumpstart his career in banking — his first job being at JP Morgan Chase where he met Brooke. Nearly a decade later, he Brad left the corporate world to work on the family vineyard, where he served as Mesa Park’s vineyard manager from 2010-2014. Brad, Brooke and their young daughter now live in Denver.
