In his own words: “Chad was born at an early age” in Alaska, but sadly he was “abandoned by his parents on his 20th birthday”.

Fortunately he found his way to Florida, where he was tutored by fellow cartoonist and “Hagar the Horrible” creator Dik Browne, and became close to Mike Peters, another cartoonist who gave Chad the sage advice: “draw what you know.”

This prompted Chad to return to Alaska, where he turned Tundra Comics into a huge success. The Tundra comic strip has since appeared in around 500 newspapers throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe, as well as in 22 different books, many years of annual calendars, clothing, bumper stickers, and a whole lot more.

In May of 2008 Chad was presented with the Reuben Award (the Oscars of the comic world) for “Best Newspaper Panel” by the National Cartoonist Society.
