Chad is a narrative artist based out of Los Angeles, California. His work is devoted to marriages of image, language, and sound design. Chad studied sound and image at USC Film School, and writing at California Institute of the Arts. It was at CalArts that he became interested in the ways poetry and story can intersect. It wasn’t until he attended the World Poetry Slam in 2013 that he realized a home for poetic stories already existed in the spoken word community. Stage fright drove him to seek a way of performing poetry that wasn’t “in the spotlight,” and – in this way – his video poems were born.
