Chad grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and chased big-league baseball dreams since he was 7 years old. In 2003 he was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds and played baseball professionally in their minor-league system for 3 years.
Injuries kept him from progressing to the MLB, so he shifted his focus toward photography, but continues to chase big-league dreams with a camera.
From 2009-2012 he focused on photojournalism and was a regular freelancer for the San Francisco Chronicle, Reuters, The Registry Real Estate Journal and shot a number of assignments for national publications like Bike, Powder, Wines & Vines and Decanter UK.
From 2012-2014 he concentrated on architecture and was honored to document the marquis office projects in San Francisco and Silicon Valley including Twitter, Box, HP, Western Union, Dell and many downtown high rise buildings for commercial real estate brokers and developers.
Chad moved with his family to the wide open spaces of North Dakota in 2014 and created Intersection Journal, a personal project that captured authentic visual stories in Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota and South Dakota, with the help of a successful Kickstarter campaign and continues to pursue new engaging ways to tell authentic stories about the Middle of Everywhere.
Now based in Watford City, ND, Chad travels world-wide to help corporate clients present themselves in the most authentic and elegant way possible. Chad continues to apply his documentary photography skills to every assignment ensuring that the deeper narrative is revealed in any setting.
