He packed his bags and headed to Australia to study film at the world-renowned Hillsong International Leadership College. That’s where he honed his craft of visual storytelling, and picked up an amazing Aussie accent. Then he returned to the Tampa Bay area, lost his accent, and started sharing his talents with Vers.
Chase’s visual mind’s eye sees things no one else would ever imagine, and he knows how to turn his concepts into reality. His quiet, servant heart makes him instantly likable–if his huge smile didn’t already win you over. He has a steady confidence that makes Vers video and photo shoots an enjoyable experience.
You couldn’t name a movie that Chase hasn’t seen, and he’s got movie references at-the-ready, for all life’s circumstances. His wife, Rachel, doesn’t seem to mind his obsession with Star Wars, but his dogs Tux and Poe merely tolerate his nerd status.
This is his stuff
Lord of the Rings Sword: First gift my wife ever got me, because she’s supportive of my inner nerd.
Australian Flag: Is this too big of a flag for a country to which I’m not native? I’m clearly a fan of the country, but I also went to school there.
StarWars Action Figure: “I’m just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe.” – Jango Fett
I bet you knew that quote was coming.
Baseball Mitt: Was I a baseball prodigy? No, but I played the sport like my life depended on it.
My Fender Jazzmaster: I’ve been playing the guitar for 15 years, and it’s a passion I hold close to my heart.

Rubix Cube: There’s never a puzzle too hard to solve.
67 Mustang: A love of cars runs through my blood. Like father, like son.
