TL;DR:
I'm Casey, I work professionally as a copywriter and nonprofessionally as an illustrator. I studied web development at art school because I think computers should be more than practical tools. I think a good story beats everything else any day of the year, even Christmas.

Here's a comic I wrote and illustrated in a day instead of sending a normal resume like a sane person would have.


Fall 2017 to Now:
Sitting under a palm tree at 72 and Sunny LA, drinking CBT-laced kale smoothies and working on Infiniti, Tillamook, new business and the occasional cocktail pop-up.


Spring 2015 to Fall 2017:
Lured to America's first Capital with the whiff of a biscuit and the opportunity to be part of the team at Martin leading global campaigns for OREO and Chips Ahoy! and other Mondelez stuff.


Spring 2013 to Spring 2015:
Two years as a laowai in the Wieden Shanghai office, learning what makes China move, and trying to disrupt a brand new advertising market for Nike, Tiffany, Disney, Levi's, Tiger beer, Jeep and COFCO, the government's friendly yet terrifying food monopoly.


Summer 2010 to December 2012:
Raised a real ruckus at Wieden+Kennedy Portland, worked with some amazing people to do some amazing work on Target, Dodge, Coke, the American Indian College Fund and Facebook.


Summer 2009 to Summer 2010:
Mailed Wieden+Kennedy an envelope full of toys, games and candy (and a little swatch of whiskey ice cream wallpaper) and ended up in their advertising school, WK12. Found the thing that I could do forever. Trying to get into trouble for a living.


Fall 2008 to Spring 2009:
Racked up a hell of a lot of debt going to the Art Institute to learn about Youtube in their Web Development and Interactive Media program. Most important lesson learned: art school is depressing.


Fall 2008 to Fall 2008:
Thought I would be a chef. Enrolled in culinary school for one day, left after the first class where we were taught that lemon tastes 'lemony' and that spice tastes 'spicy'. Got a job as a barista at a restaurant, and was fired for spending too much time working as a barista instead of in the kitchen.


Pre-2008:
I don't really remember much of this. I think I went to Sea-World once.
