As CEO of soundz.com Chad led a team that built the first music-based search engine for the web, as well as early webcasting of live concerts. Soundz was sold to EnterMedia, an online entertainment company that spun out of Creative Labs.
In 1993 Chad pioneered work in interactive telephony by creating a local, advertising-based entertainment information service called the InfoLine. The InfoLine provided people with movie, music and cultural event information and ticketing services. With the birth of the first web browser in 1994, All-Info.com went online as a “CitySearch-like” city guide. All-Info was acquired by TDS Telecom. Specialties
