Leaving school early, Brad Morris received the best education for life writing: The streets. As a soldier in the SADF, Brad was one of an elite few to complete a JLs instructor corporal’s course. He then went on to become a model for the prestigious G3 Agency in Johannesburg, as well as an actor, starring in films like Steel Dawn, with Patrick Swayze, and American Kickboxer. He also played the lead role in the first foreign production of the controversial AIDS play, Beirut, which toured South Africa in the late 80s. Brad achieved some notoriety when he physically engaged several drunken and aggressive audience members at a matinee performance at the Baxter Theatre in Cape Town. Brad has worked as a stuntman on several feature films shot in South Africa, and as a professional kickboxer, he competed for the South African middleweight championship, losing a close points decision.

Originally from South Africa, Brad has been a citizen of the United States since 1996, and currently resides in New York.

Brad joins the World Arts Agency as part of the ‘Surviving Hillbrow’ project, and is working on his memoir, chronicling the Odysseus-like adventures of an exceptional life.
