Brad Staggs, a former resident of Logansport, Indiana,
has been working with MagicHouse Productions and Mark Racop on various
projects since the early 90’s. He landed the part of Professor
Johann Marcus in Starship 1: Havoc on Homeworld simply by being in the
right place at the right time, and that had a lot to do with killing
his acting bug.
Brad was born in Terre Haute, Indiana far too many years ago. He joined
the United States Air Force in 1985 and got his first taste of writing
for the Sembach Tiger, the base newspaper for Sembach Air Base, West
Germany. It has been almost impossible to get him to stop writing ever
The 90’s were a non-stop blur of writing and creativity for Brad.
In 1994, he and his then-wife Noelle and mother-in-law Nanci started
Sleepless Knights Productions, a small, home recording studio in order
to record the music Noelle and Brad had been writing together.
Together with artist Kevin Halter, Brad created the world of the Traveler’s
Pub, a three-issue comic book series that was published by Mark and
Jill Racop under the MagiComics banner. The comic book was well received
and allowed the guys to achieve their childhood dreams of being the
biggest geeks on the block by attending what was then Chicago ComiCon
Brad continued writing and began a novel entitled Ashmadai in 1995.
After several years of working on the novel, he brought in co-writer
Nicki Fellenzer, and the book will be published in early summer of 2007.
Thanks to the Civic Players of Logansport, Brad remained busy in the
theater during the 90’s, writing quite a few one-act plays for
their annual Night of One-Acts and finally writing Essentially American,
a full-length, 2-act stage comedy, which was produced by Civic Players
in March, 1999.
In early 2001, Brad joined the Army National Guard as a Broadcast and
Print Journalist, successfully completing three courses at the Defense
Information School. He was called to active duty from February 2003
to February 2005 and now works at the Pentagon in Washington, DC for
the Chief of Army Public Affairs. His days are filled working with the
national media and editing video, a dream job that is far too good for
Brad was again called to active duty in August, 2006 and is currently
stationed in the province of Kosovo. He has taped a pilot show for a
Sitcom he wrote entitled Ex-Kid, which can be seen on YouTube and at
his blog site on which he keeps a semi-daily or weekly… depending
on the week… blog (http://bradstaggs.spaces.live.com/).
