Bradley Thomas Kuykendall – Producer
Bradley has been a very successful entertainer and business man over the years. When he first came to Los Angeles he was an actor, singer and writer. A member of SAG-AFTRA and AEA, he has performed the leads in dozens of theatrical shows and has been seen on TV and films.
After 5 years in LA, Bradley moved to Nashville and formed his own band, singing and touring all over the US for the next 8 years. Then after deciding to raise his son, he quit performing and went into business. He has owned and sold 3 successful nightclubs and owned and ran a mortgage company in Nashville for 12 years where he had a staff of 15.
After the fall of the mortgage market in 2008 and his son grown, Bradley decided it was time to move back out to Los Angeles and pursue his passions once again and use the business knowledge he has gained to produce productions he is passionate about.
His greatest strength: Being able to see the big picture and making it happen.
