For those of you who don't know me yet, hey there! I'm Chase Ventrella. It's a pleasure to meet you (you may now skip to the end of this blog).
For those of you who do know me, you may be wondering why I've decided to change my last name. There are a number of reasons, the foremost of which is there are a number of established Chase Bowman's already on the market, whereas there appear to be no established Chase Ventrella's.
My lovely "wife", Diana Ventrella, and I intend to officially tie the knot sometime this year, at which time the name change will become legal and permanent, and my "wife" will become my wife. If the preceding sentence is confusing, I apologize. I can't use the term "fiance" without picturing some recently engaged couple regaling people with unsolicited tales of their bubbly young love. I also can't verbalize the word without applying a nasal quality to my voice, but in any case, I'm veering away from my point.
Chase Bowman has served me well, but in the age of the internet, I will admittedly be glad to not be confused with cinematographers, illustrators, marketing directors, football coaches, and random high school and college students bearing the same name.
