About Me

A Friend To All

Hey, my name is Chase. First of all, thanks for taking the time to check out my website!

If there is one thing that I pride myself on it is sticktoitiveness or as it is colloquially used, determination. I like to be (to use a term that my dad coined) pleasantly persistent! I have found that there is nothing in this world that can't be accomplished through hard work.

I have also found that happiness is infectious and its profound effect on people. I make it my mission to be a beacon of joy to anyone who might need it. I often say that you can never use enough exclamation points!

Finally, I think there is a difference in being a kid, and being a kid at heart. I think that those of us who are a kid at heart have a knack for creating the best experiences.

I can bring a welcoming and positive experience into any workplace. I'd love to hear from you!


"Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, dreams are forever."

I thought I would share a little about a love of mine to show the kind of passion I would bring to any game project!

I have been a Halo fan since 2009. It quickly became my favorite franchise of all time. Halo 3 was in fact the game that inspired me to become a video game designer. Since then Halo has been a huge part of my life and continues to provide me with amazing opportunities. Allow me to share a few...


Easter 2009 I got Halo Wars after blasting through the first three games. My first introduction to an RTS game. Shortly before this I had finally got Xbox Live to play Halo 3 and have been a subscriber ever since!

Christmas 2009 was certainly defined by my newfound love of Halo. Almost every gift I got that year was Halo related.

Fast forward nine years and through DigiPen I was able to visit the 343 Industries Halo museum. My brain exploded as I entered Halo heaven!

During my junior year I joined the newly formed DigiPen Halo club! This club allowed me to play Halo in ways I never had before. I met some of the best people I had ever met here.

I often refer to Labor Day weekend 2019 as the greatest weekend of my life. The first annual Outpost Discovery Halo event changed my life. I became best friends with DigiPen Halo club founder Brandon Stam, got to meet all of my Halo heroes, and spent most of my time in the VIP room meeting all of the wonderful people at 343 Industries.

After Outpost I became good friends with Hazel-A302 actress Jordan Price, who did the official cosplay during the event. Post-Outpost I became a DigiPen Halo Club administrator. We coordinated a club meeting with Jordan's Twitch stream. This meeting saw record attendance and created a great sense of community.

After becoming a club representative I started tabling for the club and helped to spread the word for the soon to be DigiPen club of the year!

The DigiPen LAN party was Halo Club's shining achievement. I reached out to all of the 343 employees that I had met at Outpost Discovery and invited them to stop by and play some Halo with the most dedicated community members/game designers. We had more than 7 employees show up to hang out and offer game design experience to the students. I even snagged a picture with Jeff Easterling, Michael Schorr, and Unyshek, holding my signed and framed poster from Outpost Discovery!

Halo always has, and always will be a huge part of my life. It has turned me into a collector and a lover of Xbox. I owe a great deal to this amazing franchise. Whether it's lifelong friends or unforgettable experiences, Halo is unlike any other.

I bring this kind of passion to every area of my life. I hope that by sharing a little bit about something I love, that you can let me get to know your project. I would love to bring my passion to your team!
