Bradley was born and raised in the South. Born in Florida (while his parents were on vacation), raised outside Atlanta and in Central Florida, and he was somewhat of a vagabond until he found himself working in a church with students in Manchester, TN. 

In Manchester, he found his love of climbing and his love of Teri, his wife. Together, they have built homes in the Caribbean, zip-lined in Costa Rica, and eaten escargot in Paris. When they are not out and about, they listen to live music, including The Lumineers, Mumford and Sons, and U2. They watch The Office and Parks and Recreation on Netflix, play board games, where Teri dominates, and rock climb a lot in the canyons and mountains of Western Colorado and eastern Utah.
