Brad Vass

Brad was born in Oklahoma City to high school sweethearts Brian and Brenda. His father enlisted in the marine corps immediately following high school which sparked a career in the military. As a byproduct of having a military dad, Brad and his two siblings, (Brent and Brenna) lived in several states all before graduating high school. Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia all made the list. He spent time in Fort Smith, AR before living in both Virginia Beach and Northern California. Eventually, Brad landed back in NWA where he has found a home ever since. Growing up Brad loved playing sports of all kinds but his passion was soccer. He played center mid as a 6 year old all the way through graduating high school. Brad has an Associate's Degree in business, and has spent time studying at the UofA, NWACC and Longwood University. By age 22 Brad was working full time at CFA! One of Brad's main passions is for all things "sci-fi" related. Marvel, Dr. Who, Star Wars and Harry Potter are top of the list. Music has also been a constant in Brad's life. Hip hop, Rap and  R&B are all favorites. Brad is engaged to his beautiful fiance, Autumn. He believes in a hard day's work, and is most definitely an early riser. He wants to continue a career in the food industry as he loves what he does! Meet Brad Vass!
