Charles Eugene Blevins was born to a loving mother and father on a rainy 4th of July morning in Louisville, Kentucky. His parents decided to call him Chad, which, as anyone would know, is not short for Charles, but close enough. Chad grew up playing with plastic farm animals and dinosaurs. To this day, you may find him still tinkering with such things. He was consumed by shows and films filled with whimsy and wonder, and later, any period piece starring Bruce Willis. All of which inspire his work today. Chad believes in magic, and maintaining an adolescent sensibility.

Chad received a BA in creative writing from Indiana University. A few years later, he left the shores of Louisville, KY to pursue an MFA in Film, Video and Media Arts at Temple University.  He has since moved back to his hometown in the Ohio River valley to be apart of its burgeoning film community.
