You were my first friend in the industry. I remember your voice, your smile, your geek shirts, your glowing glasses, how you made everyone around you feel valued and important. You were immeasurably talented and infinitely humble. You have always helped people.

If you didn’t know @bradvenable, you were missing. He was kind to everyone he knew. I don’t think he gave himself the credit he deserved, but he was always there to support his colleagues no matter what stage they were at in their careers.
