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 (www.chadhembree.com) 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.
