Like some of the greats in the industry Chad started his company out of his garage with a single editing system. Over the next ten years he built that company into Hieroglyphic Productions, which became one of Disney’s largest vendors producing branded content for shows like Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place and Take Two with Phineas & Ferb. He also directed many A-list celebrities including Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Ben Stiller, Muhammad Ali, and Michael J. Fox.
In 2007 he became one of the early adopters on YouTube, launching an original show that quickly became one of the top comedy channels. He loved this new space for many reasons, but mostly because it leveled the playing field for people who simply wanted to create content without playing the “Hollywood” game. YouTube was also the place where he became fast friends with some of the top creators out there.
In 2012, Hieroglyphic Productions was acquired by Maker Studios where Chad served as Vice President of Production, helping to build the company before it was sold two years later to Disney for $650 Million.
After leaving Maker, Chad could see there was a better way to gauge (and share) the true value of his fellow creators. So in 2014 Chad founded Social Bluebook, a company devoted to helping social media creators build their business and brand value.
