Cheers and welcome!  I’m so delighted to have you!  You may wonder, “How’d you get into the dating business?”  It’s all quite surprising really. First and foremost, I’ve always been a lover and connector of people. There’s no better feeling than seeing beautiful smiles and hearts filled with happiness.  It literally gives me chills!
My journey to matchmaking actually began back in the summer of 2015 on a road trip to New York with a good friend.  A seemingly casual conversation between friends literally changed my life.  We shared our dating stories, the highs and lows, the taboos and couldn’t help but chuckle.  We chatted about everything from fake profiles and awkward encounters to catfishing.  That’s when the idea to bring single mixers and speed dating events to Baltimore sparked.  After hosting a number of singles mixers, I felt there was a void that wasn’t being filled.  Though people were having a great time meeting people of similar age, enjoying the venue, the cuisines, the music and the icebreakers, they just weren’t making meaningful connections.  With that in mind, I set out to revamp Chased to provide a more personalized and meaningful experience.  I truly believe that anyone who desires a long term, committed relationship or marriage deserves happiness and can have it given the right tools.  We’re here to help!
Live life.  Love every moment.  Enjoy the chase!
Bundles of love,
