Braden grew up in the Salt Lake Valley but headed north to attend college at Utah State University for both his undergraduate and graduate degrees. He considers himself a proud Aggie alum but has never stopped cheering for the Utes. Braden's master's thesis focused on the effect of congressional representation in Congress on funding for individual National Parks. In his spare time, he enjoys hiking, biking, and skiing with his wife Addy and dog Scout.
