Donning his earthsuit for the first time on July 14, 1980, Chad began something called life. Raised in Victoria, Canada, he began exploring what the hell that meant. Still not having a clue, he dove into dark water. His explorations have included songwriting, film directing, acting, love, and long walks through unknown forests. One day, while writing a biography for himself on an Internet site he realized how ridiculous it is to sum up a life in a short collection of words, especially when it is your own. So he stopped writing and lived the life he was trying to summarize.
