"My impression was, he's walking as though he's made of glass, and if you should touch him he would just shatter apart.
I don't know if it was an act or what, but it sure was effective."
-Robert Ripley / my high school yearbook
Brady identifies as actor, music, dancer person, queer, rider of rhythm, climber, enthusiast of the vibrant and prickly.
Grew up smack dab in the middle of Maryland. Encouraging family and dope Howard County theatre programs lead the charge to creative-personing, furthered and fine-tuned at Syracuse University, earning his BFA in Acting. While there, he managed to live in both NYC and LA, work in a professional theatre company, devise and perform original work, make movies, run a radio show with some friends and really get to know the artist he was becoming. New York City happened shortly after, a time marked by Off-Off Broadway gigs, art pieces, short films, fine Indian cuisine, sparkly friends and lots of dancing.
“…a veritable gymnast on the stage, leaping like a gazelle, then, as Lucy, rolling on his back and scratching his [OMITTED] endlessly, eliciting howls of mirth from the children present.”

"...amazingly talented young cast—with Brady Richards completely embodying the essence of the iconic Kerouac."

"Richards is the show’s intellectual bad boy and struts and carries a sharp wit perhaps the equal of an adolescent Oscar Wilde or Voltaire. But Richards' pronounced voice and depiction of Melchior’s burning insecurities transforms a simple know-it-all into a rebellious everyman."
for Melchior Gabor in Spring Awakening
Since arriving in Los Angeles at the dawn of ‘18, the best coast’s been reasonably kind to a wayward spastic spaceboy. Continually on the hunt for the next project and keeping busy in the meantime slingin coffees, posing, jumping off high places, walking everywhere, crafting traveling silent dance parties, and exhuming what light, wonder and camaraderie I can from this twisted city. I hope to get the opportunity to make something beautiful with whomever may have read along.
speed and purpose,
