Brad started out at Boston University School of Theatre Arts where he received his theatre degree. Hollywood was his calling, so he moved to Los Angeles and studied with the famed Don Richardson. When Don Richardson passed away, Brad felt compelled to carry out Don’s legacy. He began teaching as well as producing films while continuing to have a successful acting career. Brad enjoys teaching the lessons that he uses in his own professional acting career and has a strong passion to pass these tools on to help actors perfect their craft.
Today, Brad has students who have been studying with him for nearly fifteen years. From Judge Reinhold and Mary Gilbert, to David White and Masi Oka, Brad’s students have successfully created acting careers, and constantly keep their acting tools sharp with The Heller Approach.
His students have booked series regular, recurring roles, guest starring roles, and co-staring roles on hit shows like “Greys Anatomy”, “Extant”, “Heroes”, “Anger Management”, “Two And A Half Men”, “Mike And Molly”, etc…, starring roles in major Studio Films and Broadway theatre productions, and hundreds of commercials. He has also taught many professional comedians how to take their comedy and put it into a believable character which helps them book sit-com work.
