Leaning something about me

Hi, nice to meet you – I'm Chase and I am inspired by empathy and perspective through experience and design

My Journey

Beginning in 2003 I embarked on a passionate exploration of the arts. I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Sound Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design, I initially found my groove behind mixing boards and drum kits, where I spent countless hours crafting audio experiences. Weekends became a symphony of live performances, where I played the dual roles of artist and engineer, honing my skills.

My path then took an intriguing twist. Over time, I felt an irresistible pull toward the visual arts. I delved into sound installations and soundscapes to feed my pull towards visualization, but soon realized I hungered for more. This quest led me to a unique opportunity at a local TV station, where I had a dual role as a graphic design with audio mixer. Eager to deepen my skills in graphic arts, I returned to SCAD, earning a BFA in Graphic Design.

Upon graduation, an opportunity carried me to Dallas, Texas, where I thrived as a Visual Designer and a User Experience Designer. It was there that I crossed paths with someone who would become my life partner, adding a beautiful new dimension to my journey.

In 2018, my family asked me and my fiancé to relocate back home to Oklahoma where we co-found a business venture. The next year we marked a personal milestone, as my wife and I exchanged vows, surrounded by loved ones. Our wedding weekend was a joyous celebration of love and camaraderie.

The year 2020 brought another momentous chapter as our daughter entered the world. Her presence fills my heart with indescribable love, motivating me to be the best version of myself.

With newfound responsibilities, I made the decision to sell my stake in the family business and refocus on my career. My journey led me to a creative agency, where I embraced exciting projects for extraordinary clients.I had the privilege of collaborating with a large enterprise company, providing multifaceted solutions for both B2B and B2C audiences.

In 2023, our family was blessed with another incredible gift—a second daughter, born on St. Patrick's Day. We found ourselves to be truly fortunate, and her smile continues to warm our hearts, while her laughter spreads happiness all around. As much as I cherish my career achievements as a designer, nothing can ever compare to the journey I take with my two amazing daughters.

As I look to the future, my hunger for growth and knowledge remains insatiable. I am committed to continuing my career journey, bridging knowledge gaps, and becoming a well-rounded professional. Every day, I approach my work with an eagerness to learn and a dedication to excellence.
