Chadd is a 6th generation Coloradoan and has been studying and working with the wildlife for over 20 years. 


He has volunteered at three separate wildlife sanctuaries and rehabilitation centers, where he has worked closely with a number of different species of sick and injured animals. 

During his time at these sanctuaries, he broadened his love and compassion for the animals he cared for and increased his understanding of animal behavior.  


Chadd has a love for all animals big and small, but birds are his passion. In fact, so much so that he became a paragliding pilot just so he can be closer to the feathered friends he loves.


Naturally having a love for the outdoors, Chadd went to a wilderness college where he spent ten months furthering his skills in the art of survival. While attending college, Chadd took an apprenticeship in tracking. Here he was tested and pushed to understand not only the animal’s tracks, but also the scat and sign left behind, furthering his understanding, knowledge and appreciation for the wildlife around him.  Since, Chadd has received three Track and Sign certificates in three separate regions of the west. 


Chadd has been published in periodicals including the Rocky Mountain Wolf Project blog and Mountain Parent Magazine and is in the process of writing several wildlife reference guides as well as educational videos and podcasts.


With an expansive knowledge of the natural world around him, his expertise has been solicited for wildlife consultations around the nation and is continually sought to host wildlife workshops and presentations.


In addition to Wildlife Education, Chadd serves as a firefighter for a local department and lives in Rifle Colorado.
