In May 1998, Chad completed his freshman year at Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, majoring in Broadcast/Cinematic Arts, but ended up transferring out of CMU since he was planning to go to The Recording Workshop recording engineering school in Chillicothe, Ohio (where Jason Hofer went) from April 19 to June 3, 1999. Though originally from the Grand Rapids area, Chad ended up being raised in the small town of Fowlerville, Michigan, (about 25 miles southwest of Flint) and graduated from Fowlerville High School in June 1997. While in high school, Chad played in the school's concert, jazz, and marching bands, plus drummed in the Fowlerville-based local rock bands "Negative Memories" and "Abhor". He also nearly became the drummer for the Ann Arbor-based metal band "Harm's Way" after he graduated from high school.
Chad's favorite bands included Faith No More, Pantera, Korn, White Zombie, Metallica, Tool, Mr. Bungle, Led Zeppelin, the Doors, the Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath, GWAR, and Cream, among others.
In early November 1998, Chad purchased then-former Sin Embargo drummer Ed Stark's red 6-piece Pearl World Series drum set (as seen in the F.R.E.A.K. Show photo above.) Chad combined Ed's former drum set with some parts of his own old drum set to create the kit that he used during the last few months he was in Sin Embargo.
