Chad started working with Living Ocean in 2006 with our shark film, REQUIEM. He’s an award-winning filmmaker, editor, cameraman and world-class surfer.
Founder of the annual Kona Surf Film Festival, Chad started making surf movies in 1999 with his company, Folklore Movies. In 2001, his film The 5th Symphony Document won Surfer Magazine’s Movie of the Year. Since then, he’s gone on to more surf films including The Blueprint and Seasons - while working for the past few years as the editor for the Triple Crown of Surfing.
When he’s not in Hawaii, he’s spitting rap and traveling with the band Pepper - or working as a yoga instructor - or working as a boat boy in Tavarua. His genuine, creative thought is a major asset for Living Ocean.
