Full-time software engineer for an innovation consultancy called Citrusbyte based in LA, with employees all around the world:

He knows about web development, and enjoys teaching it to others. Even though he hasn't lived in Philly since 2016, he still heads in to teach web-dev classes with Girl Develop It Philly about once a quarter. In Spring 2018, he doubled up on jobs and taught a semester for the new Computer Software Engineering Technology program with Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology—working two jobs was probably a mistake for everyone.

Chad has a little startup, Entire.Life ( – an app to help you slow down, zoom out, and live a meaningful life. He's currently going through the Ben Franklin Partners TechCelerator program, here on the second floor of The Candy Factory, to try to grow this from a money-costing hobby into a money-making side business.

He likes thinking about tech and politics and the future—try to make it to one of his Lunch & Learns at the Candy Factory about Bitcoin! And check out his monthly Future of Governance Meetup (, hosted here at The Candy Factory.

Catch Chad during one of his work breaks. He's always happy to talk about the little he knows about cryptocurrencies, space exploration, tribalism, ecocide, whether or not we're all doomed, and hope vs despair vs action.
