I live in Berea, KY with my lovely wife (Letha) and son (Mason) where I am Executive Director of Spotlight Performing Arts and IT Manager for Hospice Acer Plus, Inc. I am currently a Councilman for the City of Berea and Chairman of the Economic Development Committee. I am also acting Chair for the Kentucky Hospice Network Informational Technology Peer Group. I attend the Berea United Methodist Church where I was the former Youth Minister. I am Past President of the Berea Lions Club as well as Past Chair for our Lions District Zone, I am active with The Berea Chamber of Commerce and serve on the Board of Directors. I attended Madison Southern High School and Berea College where I studied Broadway Performance. I started working for my family's computer business in Lexington, KY (MCA) and later opened my own computer company called CH Business Systems, Inc. After selling CH to a friend and fellow entrepreneur, I got out of the hardware business and opened DataStar, Inc Computer Services. DataStar was closed in 2009 when I took a full time position with one of my most active clients. I've been on the radio since 1995 as the host of Tech talk with Chad Hembree ( where my guests and I discuss the lastest and greatest in today's technology with a little fun along the way. My wife Letha is the Music/Chorus teacher at Madison Southern High School.
