VIDEO: Hillsborough County Fire Captain Devon Brady lives a large-scale life. From riding shotgun in a big-engine truck to putting up a huge art installation at a museum, he wants ABC Action News viewers to know that you can do both. “I started out an art major, I went through art school at USF, then I worked at a theatrical design company for about 10 years,” said Brady. However, his outlook on the future changed, like so many Americans, on Sept. 11, 2001. “I remember specifically watching a story about a woman who lost her husband in the towers, and she said, ‘I never thought this would happen to me, we met in art school, and my husband was a sculptor, and he became a firefighter later in life,’ and something about that was interesting to me,” said Brady.
