Chase McPeak

Chase McPeak is the Associate Editor of Lifestyle at The Manual, which means he's responsible for trying out a lot of clothes, shoes, and grooming products so our readers don't have to, making him, essentially, a walking billboard for The Manual.

A lapsed Midwesterner, Chase hails from Indiana where he graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor's in English from Indiana University (go Hoosiers!). Following graduation and a stint on the East Coast, Chase moved to Portland, Oregon, where he received his Master's in Creative Writing with a concentration in poetry. When being a poet didn't pan out (when does it ever?), Chase switched focus to lifestyle journalism and hasn't looked back. Since joining the Manual in early 2016, Chase has regularly appeared on Beards, Booze, and Bacon: The Manual Podcast where he offers advice on style and grooming (and is always ready with a "King of the Hill"-related anecdote). He has also appeared on Oregon Public Radio's The Four Top.

An avid hiker, outdoorsman, and traveler, Chase has been to 47 of the 50 United States and 11 countries and counting. When Chase isn't in the office, you can find him on the trail, in a boat, or on a plane. Follow his adventures on Instagram: @mcpeakaboo0.
