Experience

Chad spent 22 years educating the youth of Claymont Middle School teaching science and computers. A film geek at heart he spent many of those years running an after school program called Film Study which introduced countless kids to the classics of Hollywood and the techniques of film making. One day the sirens of local TV wooed him to the doors of TuscoTV where he began to create, film, and produce the highly praised "Back to the Bexley" TV program- a ratings juggernaut that promised "good times and bad movies" for all who watched. Tired of finding him asleep in the offices of the stations, the owners offered him a job, which he took, so he could make TV magic.

When not at work, Chad’s life revolves around:

   • Making my wife laugh.

   • Restoring vintage toys, record players and other junk.

   • Seeking long lost deleted scenes from favorite films.

   • Watching 80s cartoons with my cats.
