As a lifelong athlete, Chad competed in both track and field and cross country at Warner Pacific University, where he specialized in the 400m-1500m events. He also traveled the country as part of the NAIA’s Association of Student Athletes where he advocated for student-athletes within their respective sports. In his spare time, he enjoys running, lifting weights, golfing, biking, and trying to keep up with his Vizsla, Luka.
