Conrade Goode (born January 9, 1962) is an American actor, screenwriter, film producer, musician, artist and former professional American Football player. He was born in Columbia, Missouri and attended Parkway Central High School. He is the stepson of former St. Louis Cardinals football great Irv Goode and the son of former Mizzou All-American Conrad Hitchler.
Conrad Goode, native to the state of Missouri, was born with the burden of aspiration. With his father being a professional football player, failure would not be a concept familiar to him. After going All-American at the University of Missouri, Conrad was drafted in 1984 by the New York Giants. He played there for five years until he left the gridiron sport in 1989. Through his years in the NFL, he learned many lessons about life, himself, and the people around him. Grateful for the many experiences and friends the sport of football brought him, his aspiration once again flooded his mind with the drive to succeed. If there could be one trait that surpassed his drive, it would be his imagination. After receiving his SAG (Scree Actors Guild) card, his acting debut would be with Joe Piscopo in a Miller Lite commercial. In 1990, he would move into episodic television as a bouncer in "The Adventures of Superboy." In 1990, he followed his passions even further and made the move to Los Angeles California. For the next twenty-two years Conrad would appear in over forty commercials, more than twenty major motion pictures, become a published poet, compose music, and produce his first feature film, "Watercolor Postcards." For many people, it is believed that you have to come from somewhere special in order to be somebody. Conrad came from Missouri, climbed his way up in New York City, and flourished in Los Angeles. He now resides in Southern California surrounded by his close friends who continue to work with him in the industry and through life.
