My name is Chad O'Brien. Originally from the suburbs of Chicago, I now live in Louisville, Kentucky with my wife, Emily, and our many pets where I pursue my many and varied passions (see below). I love meeting new people and learning new things - and Louisville, in all its diverse beauty, is the perfect place for this. In the five years since Emily and I moved here we've built quite a life, exploring and sampling the excellent food, drink, music, and art scenes and making some great friends along the way. Having recently bought a house, we're planning on staying in town for the forseeable future; and I am so looking forward to the many adventures to come!
