Brad is married to volleyball player, Karen (Kiwi) Barber. They live together in Venice, CA with their daughter, Maya.  Brad grew up in the Pacific Palisades where volleyball was not his first sport.  He was bigger than most kids and was immediately guided into football at a young age. His father Bobby Barber, an L.A. County Firefighter, had a burning desire to play beach volleyball at every opportunity and took Brad and his 3 siblings Mark, Colleen and Blake to the beach every chance he could. A love affair for beach volleyball soon blossomed.  It wasn't long before one of the neighbors, Randy Stoklos, was  also being “kidnapped” every weekend (unknown to his parents) and taken to the beach for his dose of VB too.  The mob of kids then started traveling to various opens to watch Bobby compete at different venues like the Manhattan Open, The Laguna Open or where ever the next tourney would be.  Every summer as the volleyball season ended Brad would gear up for football season and did not even play indoor volleyball until he finished his college football career at San Francisco State where he became an All Conference Offensive Guard and Captain.   After returning to southern California, he enter the motion picture industry where he still is a Screen Actors Guild member today.  To get into shape it was only natural to jump head first back into beach volleyball.  Brad soon moved up and won CBVA single A then AA tourneys in the 80's . By the mid 80's, he was placing in AAA’s and eventually playing in AVP events.  Brad continued to play beach and hold his AAA for over 2 decades wining several AAA’s on the CBVA with several different players.  He and his wife are accomplished Coed tourney players. Brad still competes in the Surf festival 6 – man 50 and over division where his team has won the last 3 years.

Brad now looks forward to passing on his love of volleyball to his 16-year-old daughter, Maya. He is currently coaching 14-2's and assisting with the 12-1 club teams for Westside Warriors.  His dad, Bobby, still plays at the age of 84 at the Santa Monica Pier.
