About Chad

I have been a small business owner since 2003 and love it. My current business is one in which I coach technology professionals, business owners, and veterans. I also coach people to be effective at presentations and other forms of interpersonal communications. These are areas I coach in because of my work and life experience. Prior businesses were in IT consulting and a web software business.

I have written two books (An Entrepreneur's Carol & Achievement Alphabet), created a journal (Titan Goals Journal), speak professionally, and deliver workshops on a variety of topics. I also post articles on LinkedIn and my blog.

Prior to becoming an entrepreneur I worked as a consultant for PricewaterhouseCoopers and several smaller firms. I am also a Navy veteran.

My wife and I enjoy Formula One auto racing, Gator athletics, and traveling. I am a Toastmaster in which I have won numerous club and area level competitions.

My undergraduate degree is in Agricultural & Biological Systems Engineering from the University of Florida. I have an MBA from University of Phoenix. I am also a Certified Scrum Master (Agile Project Management).

I look forward to hearing from you vets out there!
