Originally from Southern California, Chad grew up in the Northwest for most of his childhood. Eager to return to the land of eternal sun, Chad relocated to Southern California where he graduated from The University of San Diego with a degree in Political Science & got his start in advertising after an internship at Lambesis working on Skyy Vodka.
Missing the cultural influence of a city, Chad relocated to San Francisco becoming acquainted with Broadcast Production at Grey SF and BBDO San Francisco. One project, a PSA for the Youth Leadership Institute, got Garber's production shortlisted at Cannes.
After two years of becoming master of his domain, Chad relocated to BBDO NY where he quickly got exposure to the size and speed of production he needed. His first assignment was assisting in the production for the legendary "It" campaign for eBay, winning him an AICP Award. Garber went onto produce a range of campaigns and one-offs, most memorable, for him, was a FedEx campaign.
Chad found himself a new home in the southern state of Virginia in the fall of 2007, at the Martin Agency where he produced numerous spots and campaigns for clients such as Walmart, ESPN & USTA.
After 3 years of calling The Martin Agency home, Garber, missing the Big Apple, relocated back to NYC. This time calling mcgarrybowen home, working under the tutelage of Roseanne Horn.
After a year of successful Droid campaigns for Verizon, Garber became close with one of his visual effects producers, who offered Chad a position to jump the fence to produce VFX firsthand & produce movie magic at MassMarket.
It’s with that experience Garber is looking to help agencies produce both effective & award winning work for their clients.
