With a dual architecture degree―an associate degree in architectural technology from SUNY Delhi and a bachelor's degree in architectural design from Syracuse University―Chad believes in blurring lines between the design and technical fields. He started work at HDR in 1999 and has been fortunate to have worked on a variety of project types ranging from a branch bank and laboratory facility in the U.S. to a twin tower complex and VIP prison in the UAE. Chad lives in Trenton, NJ, where he enjoys spending time with his golden retriever, Bailey, and his girlfriend, Tracy. Outside of architecture, Chad thoroughly enjoys film, photography, and nearly every facet of art. He’s also a closet audiophile with no rational means to support it.
