Hi, I'm Chad. My parents, embracing their inner hippies, decided 'Chad' was the perfect name for their son. Little did they know, it would become one of the most infamous memes of all time. I considered changing my name, but that would be very un-Chad of me. Best to blindly embrace the awesomeness and charge on.

I grew up in the small town of Princeton, California, surrounded more by rice fields than people. With only 337 humans, my closest neighbor was a good 4 city blocks away, giving me a unique perspective on the term "alone time."

After graduating from California State University, Chico, I pulled a Kung Fu and traveled through various Californian cities, from Sacramento to Santa Monica, and eventually found myself in Scottsdale, AZ. It's been quite the journey, with each city adding a new chapter to my story.

Away from the keyboard, I'm either experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, spending quality time with my French Bulldog, The Pig (aka Piggy Smalls, The Notorious P.I.G.), or enjoying the solitude of fly fishing. It's these moments that balance out my tech-driven days.

Currently, I'm making my way through Dungeon Crawler Carl - Book 6., which has been a surprisingly hilarious read. And despite never considering myself a cat person, Princess Donut, the Queen Anne Chonk, is slowly winning me over.
