    From Chad:

    After a college wrestling career, 12-years as an Army Noncommissioned Officer, a brief stint as an Under Armour Director for Tactical Fitness, and a Senior Consultant for Human Performance Analytics... I decided to venture into my passion career. In 2020, I established Battleborne Comics: Creative content forged from combat, a veteran owned comic book studio with a mission of "establishing entertainment industry inroads for aspiring veteran creators". Since then, I've been blessed to write/oversee four comic titles, two Best Screenplay competition wins, and direct my first ever movie short (Chapter & Hearse: The Misadventures of the Mob's Most Mediocre Assassin).
