Chase White

Lifestyle blogger at Live Be Dallas

After completing a degree in Advertising, Chase White fell into a wholesale career working for top international fashion brands. While working as a fashion buyer, Chase realized he was spending his days crunching numbers and using little to no creativity. At the time, Instagram was becoming the ‘it’ social platform and Chase decided to celebrate his love for Dallas by documenting the social happenings of him and his friends. From there, Live Be Dallas was born out of a need to be creative and do something outside of excel spreadsheets!

Chase began his social media career by teaching himself all things social media. He began to grow a following and tried to bring a creative POV to his feed, which led to local and national brands reaching out with various partnerships. Two years later, Chase took an under paid contract Social Media Coordinator position to build his resume. Shortly after, he joined a small start up agency leading social strategy for two Dallas-based national brands where he introduced influencer partnerships into his strategies. One year later, he discovered Saatchi & Saatchi was opening a Dallas office to service their Toyota account and he jumped at the opportunity landing the role of Social Content Manager. Now, Chase is doing what he loves!
