About Chad

Chad lives with his wife Megan and dog Nina on 63 acres in beautiful Westford, NY.

He holds a master's degree in public policy from Johns Hopkins University and a bachelor's of science degree in zoology from the University of Washington, with a minor in anthropology.

Chad works as a software and database development project manager and data analyst in the tech startup, nonprofit and international development sectors. He has spent the majority of his career helping nonprofits like the American Red Cross, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Heifer International develop and manage tech initiatives and find ways to better use their data. 

Chad grew up in Seattle and subsequently lived in Little Rock, Arkansas, and Washington, DC, before settling in upstate New York after marrying Megan, a native of Cherry Valley. 

He has been a lifelong volunteer for causes he believes in, including conducting climate change science field research with the Harvard Department of Forestry in Southern Africa, working on get-out-the-vote efforts for John Kerry, Barack Obama and Zephyr Teachout, building agricultural databases for USAID funded international projects all over the world, and providing technical assistance to schools in Senegal (for which he was awarded the President’s Volunteer Service Award by the Obama administration). Currently he is applying his management and technical expertise locally while serving on the board of Otsego 2000 (a regional organization focused on environmental and historical preservation) and as the Westford representative on the Otsego County Democratic Committee.

In his ever diminishing spare time, he collects local fossils, enjoys outdoor cooking, and occasionally plays drums in a local classic rock cover band.

Endorsed by Sustainable Otsego, in 2017 Chad was the first Democrat to get on the ballot for Otsego County Representative in District 6 since 1999. He applied his data analysis and social media acumen to help double turnout county wide compared to similar elections in 2015.

Chad advocates for the protection and advancement of individual civil liberties and freedom, sustainable economic growth, protection of the environment, and intelligent data-driven policies that seek to improve quality of life while reducing inequality and injustice.
