Bakersfield has a Desert climate with long, hot, dry summers, and brief, cool, wet winters. In fact, Bakersfield is one of the sunniest cities in the United States. Bakersfield enjoys long-lasting, mild autumns and early springs, giving the region a unique climate suitable for growing a wide variety of crops (ranging from citrus to carrots to almonds and pistachios). Rainfall averages only 6.5 inches annually, mostly falling during winter and spring.

From the young age of 12 years old, Brad knew he was passionate about food. It all began the day he made his first cheese steak while working at a local Pizza Parlor in his hometown of Cape May, New Jersey. Brad’s cooking experience may have started in a small kitchen cooking Italian food, but it has taken off since to include a wide variety of flavors.
By 2004, Brad had graduated from the Lower Cape May Regional High School. Shortly thereafter, he took off to the Academy of Culinary Arts in Mays Landing, New Jersey which is located right outside of Atlantic City. In 2006, Brad was a proud graduate packing up his bags and moving to San Diego, California. Brad’s mentor, Chef Dave Warner, had a kitchen for him to call home. Immediately, Dave helped Brad get settled in. Before Brad knew it, he was working for JRDN Restaurant in Pacific Beach, which is a favorite area in San Diego to locals and tourists alike. By March 2007, Brad had found himself working as Chef for the first time. He would continue to work there until November 2010 as the Executive Sous Chef, alongside his best friend and Executive Chef, Dave.
By the time Brad was 25 years old a new chapter was beginning for him. He had been asked to pack his bags once again and move to Bakersfield, California to become the Executive Chef of Padre Hotel. Brad feels truly honored to work for one of the most respectable companies in the food industry, the Eat.Drink.Sleep. Corporation.
