“August 2013 – Photo taken in the desert in between Karabutak, Kazakhstan, and Aralsk, Kazakhstan, while on the Mongol Rally.”

Chase Berenson is a 2007 graduate of Vassar College, who, after graduating, moved to Alaska (“which is a magnificent place to live and serves as a great background for writing.”) He then traveled to Europe to participate in The Mongol Rally, which involved driving a comically small 1.1 liter car from England to Mongolia to raise money for charity. After completing the Rally, he moved to Bangkok, Thailand, where he currently lives with his girlfriend. He has previously been published in The Talkeetna Daily Weekend and The Anchorage Press.
