After years of working in radio and owning a small record label, Chad Kelly switched gears. He got an AutoCad certification and went to work for Crestview Doors as a CNC operator and builder of cool mid century inspired front doors. When the economic downturn hit, Chad got sucker punched and found himself at home during the day, which worked out okay since his wife and he just had a new baby girl. Now currently a stay-at-home dad raising two children, Chad goes out to the Bald Man Mod workshop during nap time and odd hours of the day and night. He's always creating new molds to stick inside the vacuum press and cranking out a variety of woody home goods for all to enjoy. Chad lives in Austin with his wife Julie, daughter Claire, son Nate, and goofy dog Chester.
