Brad was born and raised in Rochester, NY. He decided to attend Niagara University in 2013, where he graduated with a business degree in May of 2017. During his 4 years at NU, Brad earned a reputation as the “dorm-room barber” and built up a sizable clientele of students.
Upon graduation from Niagara, Brad decided to further his craft by attending the Buffalo School of Barbering. It was here where Brad learned that being a barber is about more than just cutting hair and knowing how to use a straight-edge razor. He studied proper sanitation, equipment maintenance, barber etiquette, massage & color theory, as well as several aspects relating to the profession.
After completing the required 600 hour course and passing the NYS Barber Licensing exam; Brad purchased two commercial properties on Hyde Park Blvd, one of which he opened as Niagara Barber Co. in May 2018, shortly after his 23rd birthday.
