Meet the Dream Team

Ched and Brad have worked together for several years, meeting and bonding over their common interests of food, restaurant-ownership, and sailing.  And, of course, living in and loving the US Virgin Islands.


Brad Burns



Chief Epicurean Officer

Brad has been in the restaurant industry for over 30 years, and owned the successful Lake House in Vermont, but relocated to the United States Virgin Islands several years ago.  Similar to most who make the move to the USVI, Brad was looking to escape the snow and cold.  As an avid sailor, St Thomas was a natural place to choose, and Brad takes advantage of the trade winds and fair sailing days at every opportunity!


Ched Sharpless



Chief Fun Officer

Born and raised on St. Thomas, the heart of the United States Virgin Islands, Ched currently owns several restaurants here on island, and is very excited to be involved with the new concept of locally sourced ingredients at Slice VI.  After graduating from UNC-Wilmington with a degree in business management (and minor in entrepreneurship), Ched returned to his home island to start creating business opportunities.  An avid boater himself, Ched spends his free time on the water.

Why aren’t you here already?

We’ll be here at Slice VI at Sapphire Village.  Unless, of course, we’re out sailing.  Then, we won’t be here.  But, stop by anyway, and say hi!
