We are excited to introduce you to SEEMO, part of our new series of podcasts in partnership with SEEMO founder, Alex Semenzato. What is SEEMO all about? It’s about sharing and exploring creativity, culture, and the daily grind with industry leaders and emerging creatives. All of it through a different lens and everything else in-between every week.
To kick things off we are sharing three of our favorite episodes from Series One.

In this episode, Chase shares about how he became an artist, the process of getting recognized and represented by art galleries and how sometimes the best way to start out is to just host a few parties in your living room!
