Each of us defines success differently and makes decisions we think will move us in the right direction. Life events and exposure to different people and experiences shape who we are. For Brad, it's open-source software that has shaped many of his life philosophies. Whether you're a fellow engineer or a computer software novice, the life lessons of open-source software are applicable to us all.

Brad Griffith is a life-long entrepreneur but thinks like an engineer. He grew up working for his dad's veterinary hospital, learning the joys and challenges of business ownership. Brad is now President of Buckeye Interactive, the web engineering and strategy team he started in 2009. Prior to starting Buckeye Interactive, Brad spent several years consulting and developing web applications in-house for a variety of companies including JPMorgan Chase, QUALCOMM, and the Go Big Network. Brad earned his Masters in Business Administration after completing his Bachelor's in Electrical and Computer Engineering with honors, both at The Ohio State University. Brad lives with his wife and two girls (1 and 5 years old) in New Albany, Ohio.
