He is the webmaster of Friends of Quinn, a website which he created in 2008 as part of the HealthCentral Network for learning disabled individuals. It offers "resources and support for young adults with learning differences," and uses the dyslexic-friendly Dyslexie font to mitigate some of the issues that dyslexics experience when reading. As part of a series of website-video interviews with notable individuals, he interviewed filmmaker Steven Spielberg. In the interview, Spielberg described his own lifelong dyslexia and 2007 diagnosis of the developmental reading disorder. Bradlee is also the youth engagement associate for the National Center for Learning disabilities.

He married yoga instructor Pary Anbaz-Williamson in 2010. The couple divorced in 2014.


Bradlee's paternal grandfather, Frederick Josiah Bradlee Jr., "could trace his American ancestry back through 10 generations" of the family. This early collection of family history was further developed in his father's ancestry, and encouraged his own extensive interest in ancestry. He is a patrilineal descendant of several of the Boston Brahmin families including the Bradlee, Choate, Crowninshield and Sargent families among others. He is also a descendant of the old colonial American and Puritan Putnam family founded by John and Priscilla Gould Putnam in 17th century Salem, Mass. He is also a matrilineal descendant of several Mid-Atlantic and South Atlantic families including the McDougald, Quinn, Williams and Wilson families among others.
