Chad is a freelance media designer who has been working with Flash, Anime Studio, and various other types of software for a number of years. By applying methods used from his cartoon animation and filmmaking background, Chad provides a simplistic yet creative approach to each lesson he teaches.
Beginning in 1996 with a program called Microsoft's 3D Movie Maker, Chad cut his teeth on the basics of animation, eventually graduating to Flash in 2002, and then Anime Studio in 2010. Live action filmmaking was also a big part of Chad's life as he made short films with his friends throughout high school and college.
In 2007, Chad started providing free online video tutorials on Flash and other software. Since then, his tutorials have been viewed by millions of people, including entrepreneurs, teachers, students, and many others. In 2010, Chad was hired by LearnKey to present their Flash CS5 learning series, which was a six hour course detailing the entire feature set of the software. Since then, Chad has been keeping busy with various animation and tutorial projects such as creating Smith Micro’s official Anime Studio 9 tutorial series and writing for the Virtual Training Company.
