Chad was born in Lethbridge, Alberta Canada on March 29, 1982 and at an early age caught the "acting bug" after being cast as the lead in a school play.  Through the years, he knew that acting was definitely what he wanted to pursue in life and right out of High School, Chad entered into a model and talent convention and after winning 7 out of the 8 events he was selected as a "New Face" Model and was signed to a modelling contract that led him to appear in such campaigns as GAP, Gucci Eyewear and Swiss Army.
Although the modelling world offered numerous opportunities for Chad, his main focus was still on acting and soon relocated to Vancouver, BC to pursue that venture.
After obtaining an agent and beginning the audition process, Chad soon landed a supporting lead role in the independent film, "Sleepover Nightmare".  Finally, Chad was doing what he loved...acting.

Throughout the years, with ongoing training, Chad slowly built himself up quite the resume including multiple Feature Films such as "My Life as a Dead Girl", "The Wingman", "Texas Road" and "Brotherhood" and memorable Television roles on such series as "Supernatural", "The Flash", "Bates Motel", "iZombie", "Cult", "Motive", “The Secret Circle”, “Sanctuary”, "Cedar Cove", "Alcatraz" and "John Doe".

With the continued success of his acting career, Chad developed and now operates his own Production Company, "CheckMate Films" and has recently written, directed and starred in his own Comedy Feature Film, "The Perfect Pickup" and is currently in the pre-production and

writing stages of his next two comedy films, "Christmasfits" and "Walk the Walk". In late 2017, he plans to begin pre-production on the film, "A Day Down There" where he will leave the comedy genre and jump over into horror.
Chad continues to work both in front of and behind the camera as he has recently directed the Music Videos "Love U More" and “Cruel” for Music Artist DANI and the debut single Music Video “Left the Best Unsaid” for artist Paul Lambert.  Chad is also in pre-production stages for the post-apocalyptic web series "A.R.I.D" which will have Chad playing the lead character, “Trip” and as well will be directing 5 of the first season's episodes.  Aside from that, he is also preparing to head south to Louisiana to film the thriller Feature Film, "Death Cab" where he will once again turn to the darker side and play the lead role of "Theramin".
​Recently Chad just finished filming the first season of the NBC Series, "Timeless", the new Freeform Mermaid Pilot, "The Deep" and soon heads to Austria to complete the filming of the thriller feature film, "Devil, Devil, Devil".  He has also just finished filming the CBS Pilot “Wisdom of the Crowd” opposite actor Jeremy Piven, the A&E Pilot “Midsummer’s Nightmare” and the Anthony DiBlasi directed Horror film “Extremity” where Chad will play the lead villain “Red Skull”.  Not to mention that Chad and fans alike are anxiously awaiting the 2017 Summer Blockbuster, "War for the Planet of the Apes" where Chad stars opposite Woody Harrelson and Andy Serkis as the sinister and violent Soldier, "Boyle".
