After spending his 20s working a variety of jobs revolving around education, technology and international travel, Casey decided he needed to get a real job. The field of UX Design was growing and he saw lots of opportunity. After an intensive 18 months of night classes and a full-time job, he completed his Master's degree in Human-Computer Interaction at DePaul University.
Since graduating, he has worked for the agency MCD Partners as a UX designer, the startup Detour.com as the director of field testing, the Stanford d.school as a design thinking apprentice and Ascend Training as an Adobe XD instructor. Since early 2017 he has been a Sr. Experience Designer at DigitasLBi. When he's not working, Casey enjoys spending time with his wife and trying to get his son Henry to laugh.
