Brad Riddell earned a Bachelor's degree in English and a minor in Theater Arts from the University of Kentucky. He then worked professionally in film and video production for five years before attending the Master of Fine Arts program in screenwriting at the University of Southern California. Brad was one of four students in his class to be awarded "Distinction" for his thesis screenplay. That script eventually lead to an assignment to write the fourth film in the American Pie series, and he has since sold two more pitches to Universal.
When not writing, Brad is an adjunct member of the Writing Division faculty at USC, as well as Spalding University's Brief Residency MFA in Writing Program.
