Brent Chase

CEO & Co-Founder
Gaia Wearables

At an early age Brent’s brother, Alec, was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), for the next 20 years he watched how a blissful walk through the park turned into complete agony. Alec’s pain and loss of a childhood was Brent’s inspiration behind pursuing access technology. Since then he has participated in special olympic events and assisted the ASD community. From an academic side, Brent earned a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology (May 2017), currently pursuing a M.S. in Biomedical Engineering at Northwestern University (NU). Spends most of his time exploring the world, working out, and being an entrepreneur.
