Brad Gardner

Director, IT & Compliance
  • Dynamite since: April 2016
  • Most likely to … be accused of pranks that he did not commit.
  • Likes: Kids (mine most of all), motorcycles, cigars, red wine, hunting, shooting, soccer (coaching and playing), whiskey and bourbon, and the great outdoors.
  • Dislikes: White wine and rain.
  • Historical Figure: I’d compare myself to C.S. Lewis if I didn’t fall so short.
  • Interesting Fact:  I hate clapping along to a song, because of that awkward moment halfway through it when the clapping kind of dies off and you’re not sure if you should keep clapping, or just stop.
