Chase came to Nome for a change of scenery. A self-described military brat, he is used to picking up and starting over somewhere new. The past few years, he’s been bouncing around jobs – working construction, restaurants, and he was even an intern once on an anthropological dig site. Throughout his wanderings, Chase has remained close friends with his college friend Emily. When she offered him a spot on The Eroica, he jumped at the opportunity despite having no mining or diving experience and now Chase is interested in getting more than just his feet wet and wants to make the leap from greenhorn tender to greenhorn diver.
