In 1985, Brad was a 20 year old college student in UCLA. He was building computers and selling them out of his garage. A friend’s Dad, an insurance agent, came by the garage and wanted to purchase Coast Premium Rater (CPR) software, but the vendor wanted him to buy a $5,000 computer to run it. Instead, Brad installed CPR on one of his computers and sold it to the agent for much less. In a bit of a twist, he partnered with the software vendor to sell his computers. The original order was for two computers. “The first day I sold both of them,” said Brad. A career was born. Today he writes for Rough Notes Magazine and is a presenter at many insurance industry events.
