Hi, I’m
Brad Jones

What I Do

My talents

Find the Story.

We all know that stories are one of the best ways to communicate. Your ideas stick better. People empathize and grasp your perspective.  And people are more willing to trust and take risks. I’ve spent 15 years crafting stories. From large brands to kids on the Jersey Shore.


We are all human. Over my career I’ve learned to build and foster relationships. From co-workers to clients to executives, every stakeholder brings real contributions. Through listening and understanding, I connect with people to solve problems and lead teams.

Create Value.

When people have a vision to guide them and the confidence that comes from trust, good things happen fast. People want to represent great products and services. Clients and customers instinctively see the benefits. I love creating value for companies through creating strategies, practicing servant leadership and crafting stories.

Ryan McDonald

Research Content Writer (Artech Consulting) at Microsoft

“Among the countless editors and supervisors with whom I worked at 495 Productions and beyond, Brad is one of the best. We, producers, always sighed a breath of relief, knowing Brad was on our team! Nimble and efficient, thorough and thoughtful, patient and proactive, Brad’s editorial and leadership skills are boundless. His guidance was always thought out, as he uncovered stories and made decisions that helped us solve many problem areas.”

Bobbi Conway

Supervising Producer for Reality Television & Post Production

“Brad was my favorite editor during my time at G4. He took direction well, had innovative ideas, and problem solved not only technical, but creative issues. We worked freelance, and every time I got a new show; I requested to have Brad on the team. Working with him was always fun, professional and productive. When we had a show with a team of editors, Brad would take the lead editor position. He would help to communicate ideas which helped the show to come together quickly and efficiently.”
