I really can’t believe it took me this long to discover Chad. He’s been taking photos for 8 years and is most known for his Green World collection and co-founding a group called Comp Stomp Studios, which organizes physical NFT galleries.

We discuss Chad’s upbringing, his inspiration to pick up a camera, and the importance of marketable skills from the workforce.

We talk about how the rise of NFT technology has been the single largest catalyst to changing the public perception of photography being accepted as fine art with real value.

We discuss his business strategy, inspiration for his collections, and how he turned his grail, "Long Road," into one of his most accessible pieces to his community utilizing Fractional.art (now Tessera).

Lastly, we bring it home with a direct conversation about switching the focus from hanging out in spaces to getting better at art.

Enjoy 💙
