In 2011, People magazine named Bradley Cooper the "Sexiest Man Alive." Unfortunately, this is Bradley D. Cooper and though his wife thinks he is pretty hot, you may be in the wrong place. This Bradley Cooper made his way as an art director in the advertising /marketing industry before going freelance in print and web design. However, his picture book collection was a constant reminder of what he really wanted to do, illustrate and write.
He has always had a love for imaginative stories and great illustrations which is most often found in children's picture books.
Though he grew up in southeast Michigan, Brad had a 6 year affair with the city of Chicago before returning to his hometown of Brighton, Michigan. Sometimes he still wakes up in the middle of the night thinking about his beloved Chicago, but knows his heart truly belongs to Michigan.
When Brad is not writing and illustrating he is fulfilling his fatherly duties by torturing his two boys with bad jokes and childish behavior.
