Chad began expressing his artistic inclinations at an early age, frequently beautifying the walls of his family home with colorful paintings and experiments with sculpture.
Chad began his film career in set and prop design with F&D Scene Changes, creating various works for Disney and Paramount Pictures. Wanting to develop his skills further, he enrolled at Applied Multimedia in Calgary where he earned a diploma in modeling with concentrations in texturing and lighting.
He began his career in animation production with an internship at a newly-formed Calgary animation house, New Machine Studios in 2003. He quickly distinguished himself with his talent, passion and originality, earning himself a place at the creative center of the budding studio. When New Machine began production of Raven Tales, Chad was named the Production Designer, a role he has held through 4 seasons.
In his past 6 years with New Machine Studios, Chad has continued to expand his artistic and technical prowess, which can be seen in the stunning visuals he has helped to create for our first feature film, The Wizard’s Christmas.
Chad continues to work on a variety of projects, including production design on Wizard's and Raven Tales, and as co-creator of our Future Boy series concept.
So, with various personal and professional projects on the go, Chad hopes to continue to be a creative force, dazzling audiences and peers alike.
