Chase began his professional acting training at EMAS, completing the Meisner Technique Professional Training Program at the Elizabeth Mestnik Acting Studio. From EMAS he went on to get his MFA in Professional Acting from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in the U.K. Chase is a strong believer in the power of theater and filmmaking for both the artists involved and the audience. He believes it has the ability to bridge gaps in experience and understanding and that exposure to stories is invaluable to the healing of our world. As a teacher and an actor, Chase likes to explore the marriage of the psychological to the physical to get the entire body and mind involved in the training. He encourages his students to use their entire instruments to create fully expressive characters that help tell the stories that need to be told.
