Brad has been the editor of LAM since April 2010, when he joined ASLA and began a total redesign of the magazine during its 100th year. Before coming to LAM, he worked as a freelance writer for 10 years, including six years as a contract reporter for the New York Times. He was also a contributing editor to Architect and I.D. magazines during that period, and worked for several years part-time at a Maryland nursery. His design journalism career began in 1993 when he joined the magazine Architecture, where he eventually became a senior editor and then editor at large until the magazine closed in 2006. In 1992, he began reporting for the weekly Washington City Paper, and served as the paper’s arts editor from 1997 to 2000.
