About Chad Lewine

Chad began a life of computers at the age of 3. His parents worked from home so they both had computers starting in the early 90s. He cut his teeth on IBMs and quickly became interested in web pages once he got access to the internet at home. Chad was tinkering on every website building platform there was: Tripod, Homestead, Geocities, NetObjects, Dreamweaver, Flash, etc.

He learned the basics and eventual built his first website at the age of 9 for his Tae Kwon Do school  (geared towards kids. He built his second website at 10. It was a fan site for the PC video game Midtown Madness. The site offered cars and maps or other mods for other players to download. He credits customizing the look and feel of Xanga blogs as his induction into the web design space. It was here that he learned the basics of HTML, CSS and Photoshop.

Closing his first website sale in 7th grade, Chad Lewine has been professionally designing websites for over 20 years. He began as a youngster tinkering in MS-DOS, playing computer games and customizing web pages in the AOL days. Graduating from Art Institute of Pittsburgh with an A.S. in Web Design and Interactive Media, Lewine moved to Brooklyn in 2011 for a high-profile agency job. He began freelancing full-time shortly after that.
