Hello, thanks so much for visiting!
My name is Jaime, and my hope is to inspire anyone who dreams of living a bigger life than they do now. Go for it! There’s nothing stopping you — except maybe yourself.
I speak from experience, having spent the better part of my life standing squarely in my own way and talking myself out of everything I ever wanted. And it takes a conscious effort every single day to allow myself to dream and live big. For me, Chasing Bateman represents following those dreams to places I never thought I’d visit, much less live.
Four years ago, I made the bold move to leave Houston, my entire family and all of my friends to take a new job in Seattle — where I’d never been and knew no one. It was one of the best things I could have done for myself. Then almost a year ago, I went one step further and took the cross-country leap to the Big Apple, taking a job in NYC and moving to Manhattan’s Upper East Side. It’s been a literal dream come true. I’ve fallen madly in love with Broadway theater, and even made my way to the Tony Awards this year!
From frequenting Broadway musicals to grappling with feelings of inadequacy, I hope you’ll see some of yourself in my stories — and that if you do, you recognize that you can accomplish absolutely anything you choose with your time on this planet. For decades, I quietly dreamed of the life I have now. I hope that sharing my journey (both the good and the not-so-good parts) helps you see that you’re not alone, it’s not too late, and you can truly have everything your heart desires.
