Enjoy strives to be an important tool helping parent’s accomplish this as well as offer other re-imagined ways to make home entertainment as fun and enjoyable as possible.
Here is a little about the people who have contributed to the Enjoy project
Owner - Founder
Chad is the owner and founder of Enjoy Movies Your Way LLC. Chad and his Wife, Ruth, were married in 1994 and are the proud parents of three daughters. Over the course of his career, he has lived all over the United States as well as four years with his family overseas in Papua New Guinea serving with Wycliffe Associates on the mission field.
In his free time, Chad enjoys spending time with his wife, kids, and friends. Other favorite activities are playing ultimate frisbee, and serving the community as a volunteer in various capacities.
The idea for this service was inspired over 20 years ago during his first year of marriage while hosting the in-laws for a Thanksgiving meal. After a great meal, Chad and his father-in-law decided to go rent a movie to wrap up the evening with the family. Having seen National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation on TV, Chad recommended it and was excited to enjoy laughs all around. However, the unedited version of the movie had several embarrassing and unnecessary scenes that made for an awkward experience. And so was born the idea for a service that would allow an individual or family to have controls over their home movie watching experience. Now, with this breakthrough technology and service, you too can Enjoy Movies Your Way!
Shemiah is the lead developer at Enjoy Movies Your Way. He grew up in Montana and graduated from Montana State University with a bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering.
Prior to meeting Chad, Shemiah had written his own Google Chrome extension to filter profanity from Netflix and Amazon shows. He met Chad playing ultimate frisbee, where he learned Chad was starting a company and looking to hire. Amazed that they had the shared interest of creating video filtering software and both had done related work individually, they joined forces and Shemiah became Chad’s first employee.
Shemiah and his wife, Anna, have one little boy. For fun, he enjoys playing ultimate frisbee, playing guitar, and hanging out with friends and family.

He graduated from California Polytechnic State Univeristy San Luis Obispo with a Bachelors in Computer Science. In his free time he enjoys creating things with his hands (chain mail, knitting, etc…), playing pickleball, and serving where he can at his church.
