A man driven by purpose.
Shad's wife and business partner, Janelle, refers to him as a serial entrepreneur and renaissance man. His background in various industries, combined with his wide range of interests and talent for creating new products, innovations, and improved methods, led to the launch of several corporations, including the non-profit, Novitas Foundation*.
Service to others is what drives Shad and is evident in everything he does. His corporations assist clients with solutions to meet their needs, and through corporate sponsorships of Novitas Foundation* help give Shad the opportunity to follow his passion for meeting the needs of people around the world.
Shad released his new book, Claire's Dad: How I Earned the Title (available in paperback and Kindle e-Book) for publication in February 2018. In Claire's Dad, Shad takes the reader through 20 years of life-experience and commentary; exploring and demonstrating how a father can grow and nurture his relationship with his daughter – no matter her age. (A portion of Claire's Dad book sales, speaking engagements, and promotional events are donated to Novitas Foundation*.)
A self-proclaimed foodie, Shad loves cooking food of all kinds and sharing food with others. (Bulgogi marinaded oxtail or avocado wood smoked brisket, anyone?) Shad also enjoys spending time with his family, books, music, exploring, history, world culture, and being in the great outdoors. Oh, and of course, excellent lighting.
