Brad Montgomery

Brad Montgomery is a software developer and entrepreneur in Memphis, TN. He has over 15 years of software development experience, and is currently the Cofounder and Technical Lead for Tennessee Data Commons where he leads the efforts to bring smart technologies to drive social change.

Brad has previously worked with organizations of various sizes operating in multiple domains including educational institutions, consulting firms, and silicon valley startups.

Brad lives in Bartlett, TN with his wonder wife and two amazing daughters (both of whom are growing up way to quickly!).
