Meet Bradlee: Our New Office DJ

by Joshua Yu | Jul 16, 2018

Bradlee is the newest member of the Modern Species family and our first ever intern. He is an illustrious young designer who is pursuing a Design BFA from Western Washington University. Bradlee approaches every project with a wide smile and positive energy that can be seen within his design solutions. When Bradlee isn’t clicking away at his work computer he can be found looking for Seattle’s best boba, binge-watching RuPaul’s Drag Race or just cackling loudly in a public space... and he keeps our office playlist fresh and hip and on the daily.
